As the 2019 NCHA Limited Age event year nears midpoint and breeding season nears its end, the 2019 sire statistics, thus far, merit consideration. Metallic Cat, at 14, the youngest living stallion on the Top 10 list of All-Time Leading NCHA Sires, leads 2019 standings by a wide margin – $1,003,806 to Kit Kat Sugar’s $642,153, for second-place among sires of 4-year-olds, and $1,070,508 to Dual Rey’s $454,230, for second-place among sires of 5/6-year-olds. Thirteen stallions, however, share the limelight with Metallic Cat, so far, in 2019.

Crey Zee Good

Even with a score of 222 points, as first to work in the 21-horse NCHA Open Futurity Finals, Crey Zee and Tatum Rice were plenty vulnerable. Last year’s winning score was 228 points, marked by Austin Shepard and Dual Reyish. And the last time a score of 222 won the event was in 2008, when Metallic Cat and Beau Galyean claimed the championship. Both Shepard and Galyean, as well as three other past NCHA Futurity champions were in Sunday’s Finals, as well.
