When Equi-Stat Elite $2 Million Rider Tarin Rice heard there was a $40,000-added any-age cutting at this year’s Augusta Futurity, he knew exactly where he and the stallion CR Gotcha Covered were going to be come January.
Julie Beasley has competed at the Augusta Futurity for years. She’d had some good runs and made various finals, the Alabama cutter had never landed a championship at the event in Augusta, Georgia. That changed this year.
The Augusta Futurity is known for its Southern hospitality, but organizers are kicking it up a notch for the show’s 40th anniversary in 2019. The $219,000-added show, slated for Jan. 12-19 in Augusta, Georgia, will feature The 40 – a new $40,000-added any-age cutting.
