Jody McGlothlin of Perrin, Texas, marked 222 on Somethingtobelievin to win the Limited Non-Pro finals Monday evening at the Jerry’s Chevrolet NCHA Futurity, presented by Great American Insurance. Australia’s Peter Ryan was second with a 219 on Drip Drop Of Reyn.
Somethingtobelievein was bred by Shane Plummer by Hydrive Cat out of Playin T Etta, by TR Dual Rey. Playin T Etta was reserve champion of the Non-Pro Breeders Invitational and an NCHA Derby finalist with Christina Galyean. She earned over $100,000, mostly in Non-Pro competition.
Playin T Etta is also the dam of Tallica, a Mettalic Cat mare that was also a Breeders Invitational reserve champion with Ty Moore, and an earner of $50,000.
This is McGlothlin’s second win in Will Rogers Coliseum. She was Amateur champion of the 2006 NCHA Derby on Platinum Bob.
Reserve champion Peter Ryan, from Moura, Queensland, rode Drip Drop Of Reyn, a Dual Smart Rey mare out of Cats Freckles Oak, by Smooth As A Cat. Drip Drop Of Reyn was bred by Pine Island Ranch. Her dam was reserve champion of the Cattlemen’s Derby with Winston Hansma, and she earned $38,000.
Drip Drop Of Reyn was a $15,000 purchase at last year’s Western Bloodstock NCHA Futurity Sales.
Ryan has previously been a finalist twice in the Amateur division of the NCHA Futurity, once in the Limited Non-Pro and once in the Non-Pro. His highest placing was third in the 2011 Amateur with Smart Rey Badger.
