Augusta: Jordan Vaughn & CR Catty Trey Two-Time Futurity Champs

Jordan Vaughn hasn’t been to all of the Augusta Futurity 41 editions, but he’s been a participant since he was a teenager. The 2020 show will likely be a memorable one: Vaughn won not one, but two Futurity championships.

He won the 4-Year-Old Futurity’s Non-Pro and Amateur hardware with CR Tuff Catty Trey, a talented gelding by Equi-Stat Elite $4 Million Sire Woody Be Tuff. The rider from Forsyth, Georgia, and the sorrel Quarter Horse marked a winning 222 in each final.

The combined winnings — more than $11,100 — pushed CR Tuff Catty Trey’s lifetime Equi-Stat record to more than $23,000.

Bred by Center Ranch, CR Tuff Catty Trey is out of the mare ARC Catty Dual. The daughter of the late Dual Pep has produced the winners of more than $610,000, topped by leading performers One Catty Cupid ($192,756, by One Time Pepto) and CR Catty Trey’s full sibling, CR Dualin Out Tuff ($79,331).

The titles with CR Tuff Catty Trey weren’t the only wins Vaughn had at this year’s Augusta Futurity. Earlier in the Futurity, Vaughn and his 7-year-old gelding, Juan In A Million, won The 41 Amateur any-age cutting at the show. Last year, Vaughn and Juan In A Million won the 5/6-Year-Old Amateur at the Augusta Futurity.

Overall, Vaughn has compiled an Equi-Stat record of more than $275,000 in the cutting pen. CR Tuff Catty Trey has won more than $15,000.

They were among the several champions crowned so far at the show, which runs through Saturday, Jan. 25, at the James Brown Arena in downtown Augusta, Georgia:
