Sponsored by PCCHA

The 2020 Holy Cow Performance Horses Pacific Coast Cutting Horse Association (PCCHA) Futurity, Cutting Stakes and Classic/Challenge is set to run Oct. 1-10 at the South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa in Las Vegas.

With more divisions than ever for riders to enter and all limited-age classes leveled, anticipation is high for the event, which features more than $322,000 in added money.

The 2019 edition of the Holy Cow Performance Horses PCCHA Futurity showed entries up significantly from the previous year. In 2019, there were 972 entries with $331,500 added.

Show officials, who made a point to maintain the same amount of added money in the top-level classes, were pleased to see so many limited riders in 2019 take a shot at the Intermediate divisions, and intermediate riders also enter the top level of their classes, said Phil Benadum, executive director of the PCCHA.

The 2020 show will have Breeders Program incentives for stallion, mare and foal owners! Plus, additional incentives are offered for owners with 3-year-olds by Cats Gotta Diamond and Metalic Al!

Also planned for 2020 is a Trainers Dinner featuring the Dave McGregor Award, the Members Hall of Fame and the Ed & Modine Smith Sportsmanship Award.
