Reyzin, owned and shown by Phil and Mary Ann Rapp, is currently the leading NCHA money earner for the 2013 calendar year with $155,097. Lil Catbaloo, shown by Lloyd Cox for Gene and Michelle Morris, is ranked second with $116,717.

Lil Catbaloo and Cox won the Breeder’s Invitational 4-Year-Old Derby in Tulsa on June 18, where Reyzin and Phil Rapp claimed reserve. But Reyzin, from the first crop of 2007 NCHA Horse of the Year High Brow CD, has won three non-pro championships this year with Mary Ann Rapp and has been an open and/or non-pro finalist in nine major events.

Lil Catbaloo, by High Brow Cat, is out of Sweet Lil Boo, a half-sister to High Brow CD. Lloyd Cox also showed Lil Catbaloo to place fourth in the 2012 NCHA Futurity and to claim reserve in the Arbuckle Mountain Derby.
