The first week of the Lucas Oil National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Super Stakes held at the Will Rogers Coliseum in Fort Worth, Texas, wrapped up with the Classic Limited Non-Pro, and competitors’ solid runs made for an exciting show.
In the 14-horse finals, Ken Sitton and his own Little Swiss Desire (Desires Little Rex x Swiss Cat x High Brow Cat) came in as the second draw and laid down a 218. Their score held up for the remainder of finals, and they topped the division by 3.5 points.
Sitton and Little Swiss Desire garnered $9,760 for the title. The paycheck pushed Sitton to an Equi-Stat record of $217,476. The 5-year-old mare, who was bred by Jerry Durant, of Weatherford, Texas, now boasts lifetime earnings of $46,890.
“It really feels great to win in this arena,” Sitton said.
Lisa Taylor and her mare Scootin In Stilettos (Smart Lil Scoot x Visa Lena x Shorty Lena) marked a 214.5 for the Reserve Championship, worth $9,170.
