It was good news for the cutting horse industry following the first sale held during the NCHA Futurity. With seven sales being held during the 2017 NCHA Futurity, the first sale – the NCHA Futurity 2-Year-Old Sale Session 1, started with a bang on Tuesday, Dec 5 in the Watt Arena.

With most of the 130 consignments working on cattle, according to results published by Jeremy and Candace Barwick’s Western Bloodstock Ltd., the sale company for all seven sales, they grossed $3,194,400 for a $25,572 average. However, 71 (or 55 percent) actually were marked “sold” by the auctioneer, bringing a net total of $1,904,900. The average was a whopping $26,830 and a median of $19,000 (median is halfway between the high-selling horse and the lowest-selling horse).

These figures top the 2016 net of $1,789,400 and an average of $24,181 and a  median of $15,500. To top it off, Metallic Quintan 114, the high seller in 2016 brought $100,000, while the top seller this year, CR Tuff Tizzy (Woody Be Tuff x ARC Catty Dual, by Dual Pep, with earnings of $168,762 and 8 money earners of $245,333), brought $350,000 from Bobby Patton of Rocking P Ranch. The filly, who looked like she was ready for the 2018 Futurity, was consigned by Hunter Meinzer of Meinzer Livestock LLC, Weatherford, Texas.
