Lauren Chartier and Cees Little Poo repeated last year’s win with a 226-point victory in the Mercuria NCHA World Series of Cutting Non-Pro finals at the All American Quarter Horse Congress this evening. The win was worth over $10,700, and will move her up from fifth place in the 2011 World standings.
Last year, Chartier and Cees Little Poo marked 227 at Congress for a six-point victory. This time around it was closer, with her 226 edging Janet Westfall and Lil Dusty Lola by a single point. They have also been finalists in World Series events this year at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo and the Battle in the Saddle.
Chartier will go over $280,000 in career earnings with the win. Cees Little Poo is a 9-year-old son of SR Instant Choice, out of Perry Poo, from the family of NCHA Horse of the Year Hicapoo. Cees Little Poo was bred by Bar H Ranche and is owned by Lauren’s father, Dr. Robert Middleton.
