Highbrow Supercat

The term “strong dam lines” has taken on a new meaning in today’s cutting world, where some mares have more entrants in a single aged event division than many stallions. Here are the mares with 3 or more foals entered in the 2012 NCHA Open Futurity. The first mare, 2005 NCHA Futurity champion Highbrow Supercat, owned by Paul Dean, Claremore, Okla., accounted for two of last year’s NCHA Open Futurity finalists and an Open Limited finalist.

Two of the 8 mares, Calie Del Rey and CR Cats Meow, are owned by Center Ranch, Centerville, Tex. While only one of the mares, Play Miss, is owned by a Top 20-ranked industry leader – Glade Knight’s Slate River Ranch, Weatherford, Tex. Slate River ranks #12 among among breeders of cutting horses with offspring earnings of $3.4 million, and #6 among owners of cutting horses with $3.7 million in earnings.
