Plain Catty

Plain Catty, a bay roan stallion, is this year’s National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) Snaffle Bit Futurity Open Champion. He was shown by Equi-Stat Elite $1 Million Rider Jake Gorrell. They had a 657.5 composite score, with a 214.5 in the herd work, 218 in the rein work and a 225 down the fence, to secure the winning purse of $125,000. Kevin Cantrelle is the horse’s owner and breeder.

Plain Catty (Bet Hesa Cat x Miss Plain Plain x Just Plain Colonel) has a pedigree that brings together two of the breed’s great nicks. These nicks then come together to form a nick of their own, utilizing a breeding pattern that is very prominent in the American Quarter Horse.

Sire line
Bet Hesa Cat (High Brow Cat x Bet Yer Blue Boons x Freckles Playboy) was the 2011 National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Open World Champion. He earned $272,000 and was a multiple limited-age event finalist at major shows, including the 2010 Breeder’s Invitational, where he won the Derby Open Reserve Championship.

Bet Hesa Cat is an Equi-Stat Elite $1 Million Sire with earnings of more than $1.5 million. His 2017 money-winners include Reyzurbetsonthiscat ($93,429), the 2017 Augusta Futurity 4-Year-Old Open Champion, and Calico Spots ($38,174), the 2017 Augusta Futurity 4-Year-Old Non-Pro Champion.

Bet Hesa Cat is also proving to be a reined cow horse sire, with Bet Hes Black ($99,618) adding the 2017 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Open Reserve Championship to his sire record. Then we can add 2016 Idaho Reined Cow Horse Association Derby Open Champion Boonlight Roan Bar ($46,485), Bet He Sparks ($37,652), the 2017 National Stock Horse Association (NSHA) Futurity Intermediate Open Champion, and Bet Shesa Fancy Cat ($14,986), the 2017 NSHA Futurity Limited Open Champion and Level 1 Limited Open Champion.
