Stacie McDavid and Dmac Wise Guy led the first round of the Non-Pro Super Stakes. Hart Photography.

Non-Pro Hall of Famer Stacie McDavid of Fort Worth scored 219.5 on Tuesday to lead the first round of the Non-Pro at the Lucas Oil NCHA Super Stakes. She rode Dmac Wise Guy, by Hickorys Indian Pep.

Elizabeth Quirk’s 219 from the previous day held up as the second high score of the go-round. One hundred contestants marked 211 or better to advance to Wednesday’s second round.

David and Stacie McDavid bred Dmac Wise Guy out of Wise Little Miss, a Wise Play mare that won the Open Brazos Brash Classic with Jason Clark, and the Open Chisholm Trail Fall Roundup with Shannon Hall. Wise Little Miss also produced Wise Little Pepto, a gelding that Clark rode to win the Idaho Classic.

Dmac Wise Guy was an NCHA Futurity Non-Pro semi-finalist with Stacie McDavid.

Stacie, who has earned more than $750,000, is a three-time Super Stakes Non-Pro finalist: with Lenas Smart Missy in 2001, Little Chantilly in 2003 and Dmac Snoop Dog in 2006. She’s also made four trips to the Super Stakes Classic finals.

Ryan Rapp of Weatherford, Texas, and Katie Rice of Centerville, Texas, both marked 217 to lead the Limited Non-Pro go-round. Fourteen contestants scored 212 or better to advance to Friday’s finals.

Rapp rode Tuff Julie, a Woody Be Tuff x Missys Powder mare that also took him to the Limited Non-Pro finals at the NCHA Futurity.

Rice rode Miss Laureyna, a Smart Royal Rey x CR Hot Meow the she rode to win the Limited Non-Pro at the Cattlemen’s Derby, and take the reserve at Arbuckle Mountain. She was also a Non-Pro finalist at the Cattlemen’s Derby.

Elizabeth Quirk of Denham Springs, Louisiana, marked 219 on Mosses Man, by Metallic Cat, to lead the first day of Non-Pro competition Monday at the Lucas Oil NCHA Super Stakes in Fort Worth.

Glade Knight was next best with a 218 on High Stylish Cat (High Brow Cat). He was followed by no fewer than nine riders at 216: Jodie Cerny on Mare E Hughes (Thomas E Hughes); Brett Johnson on Superfly (Smooth As A Cat); Jade Mitchell on Nedd (That Sly Cat); Hope Mitchell on One Super Cat (One Time Pepto); Ty Moore on Wisper Sweetnothings (Smart Little Lena); Lach Perks on Sweet N Starlight (Smooth As A Cat); Elizabeth Queen on My Girl Crush (One Time Pepto); Mary Ann Rapp on Coooter Brown (Dualin Puddy Tap); and Lindy Ashlock on Rubies N Diamonds (Dual Rey).

Mosses Man was bred by Linda Holmes out of Nurse Moss, a full sister to $29 million sire Dual Rey.

Kory Pounds rode the gelding to the NCHA Futurity semi-finals, and Quirk was a Non-Pro finalist with him at the Bonanza this spring.

Quirk is a tw0-time NCHA Super Stakes Non-Pro finalist, riding A Cat Be Nimble in 2011 and Boudin Cat in 2014.

John Deere Division champion Jon Burgess on Littlemak.

Jon Burgess rode Steve Anderson’s Littlemak, by Starlights Gypsy, to a half-point win with a 219.5 in the John Deere Division of the Lucas Oil NCHA Super Stakes Sunday evening in Fort Worth. Greg Wright was the reserve champion on Star C Land & Cattle’s Aristocratic Star, by High Brow Cat.

Wright was last year’s John Deere Division champ on Stars Freckled Girl, while Burgess took the 2015 John Deere Division of the Super Stakes Classic on Gold From Home.

Littlemak was bred by Joann Parker out of Justa Swinging Gal, and the 4-year-old is a full brother to PKR Big Mac, an Open and Non-Pro limited age champion that has earned over $160,000 with Jon and Traci Burgess, and Steve Anderson.

He brought earnings of $6,108 to the Super Stakes.

Reserve champion Aristocratic Star was bred by Debbie Patterson out of Aristocratic Cookie, a mare she rode to the 2005 Super Stakes Non-Pro finals.

Greg Wright was an Open finalist with Aristocratic Star at the Cattlemen’s Derby and a Limited Open finalist at Arbuckle Mountain on his way to the Super Stakes.

The second round of the Open division of the Super Stakes concluded Sunday, with 60 horses scoring 431.5 or higher to advance to Friday’s semi-finals.

The top cumulative score, 445, was set by first-round winner Moms Stylish Player, by Lizzys Gotta Player, ridden by Kenny Platt for Robert Tregemba of Castle Rock, Colorado. Moms Stylish Player’s cumulative go-round score is believed to be a Super Stakes record.

Cromed Out Cat, a High Brow Cat mare ridden by Geoffrey Sheehan for Beechfork Ranch of Millington, Tennessee, had the next best cumulative score of 437.5, marking 216.5 and a second round high of 221.
