The Idaho Cutting Horse Association (ICHA) Futurity and Aged Event saw 11 horse and rider combinations in the Derby Open finals, but it was the last two draws who took first and second.
As draw ten, Morgan Cromer walked to the herd with confidence on Terry Ratto’s Dis Cats Dynamite (WR This Cats Smart x Lil Smokin Dynamite x Dynamite Badger) and marked a 223.5, which ultimately earned the pair the Championship, worth $10,021.
The win pushed the mare, who was bred by Benjamin Herman, lifetime earnings to nearly $38,812.
TJ Good and Lion Down (Metallic Cat x Absolutely Stunning x Smart Little Lena) directly followed Cromer, and earned a solid 222 for the Reserve Championship and $9,000.
