2009 Sorrel Mare
(Woody Be Tuff X CR Cats Meow)

Owned by the Center Ranch

'2012 NCHA Futurity Co-Champion

This win marks Ronnie's fifth NCHA Futurity title (three Champion, two Reserve) and shares the glory with his great-nephew, Tarin Rice, having ridden He Bea Cat. Both riders wowed the crowds Saturday night under the lights of the famed Will Rogers Arena with impressive rides marking 222.5.

This also marks a great moment for Woody Be Tuff, as this win confirms what we at the ranch have been saying for a while - that his babies have outstanding potential in the cutting arena. Woody Be Tuff introduced his first competing foal crop to the world stage with two top five Futurity Finalists, including Co-Champion CR Tuff Hearted Cat (Woody Be Tuff X CR Cats Meow) and Kittyswood (Woody Be Tuff X Kitty Oak), ridden by Steve Oelholf and owned by Robert Ballard of Lake Jackson, Texas. Boyd Rice made an impressive bid too, atop CR First Tuff (Woody Be Tuff X Dees Cats Meow) in the Open Semi-Finals. We couldn't be more proud of these amazing riders, atop phenomenal horses. We look forward to an exciting spring.
