Phil Rapp and Reyzin marked 226 to win the Mercuria NCHA World Series of Cutting Open finals at the All American Quarter Horse Congress in Columbus, Ohio on October 13.

Kaitlyn Wimberly of Millsap, Texas, padded her lead in the NCHA Non-Pro World Standings with a 227-point win in the Mercuria Non-Pro finals on Light N Lily.

Reyzin, owned by Gale Force Quarter Horses of Conway, South Carolina, marked 222 in the go-round to qualify sixth in the seven-horse field. Her 226 in the finals gave her a three-point margin over R.L. Chartier on Gary and Karen Fields’ A Little Bossy.

Bred by Phil and Mary Ann Rapp, Reyzin is by High Brow CD out of Miss Reycine, a Dual Rey mare that earned more than $119,000.

Seven-year-old Reyzin brought earnings of more than $358,000 to Congress. She’d been Open reserve champion at the Breeders Invitational and the Western Bloodstock NCHA Showdown in Cowtown with Phil Rapp, and had been named NCHA Non-Pro Horse of the Year for her achievements with Mary Ann Rapp. She added $10,846 to her career total in the Mercuria finals.

Kaitlyn Wimberly picked up $10,984 for her Mercuria win on Light N Lily, giving her a lead of more than $20,000 as the point year closes in on the Mercuria NCHA World Finals in Fort Worth.

Former Senior Youth World Champion Priscilla Wilson marked 224.5 for second in the Non-Pro finals at Congress.

Wimberly rode Light N Lily, a Light N Lena x Meradas Oh Cay mare bred by her father, Billy Martin. In their limited age campaign, Wimberly and Light N Lena won championships at the NCHA Super Stakes Classic, the Cattlemen’s Derby, Abilene Spectacular and the West Texas Classic.

They won the Mercuria World Series event at the Pacific Coast Derby earlier this year.

Light N Lily has now earned more than $241,000. Wimberly was inducted into the NCHA Non-Pro Hall of Fame this summer.
