DATE POSTED:July 30, 2020

Champayne Dreams and brothers Scotty and Tag Rice had the show of all shows at the 2020 National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Metallic Cat Summer Spectacular.

They and the 4-year-old mare went on a tear in the Open and Non-Pro competition, winning two classes — the 4-Year-Old Intermediate Open with Tag and 4-Year-Old Non-Pro with Scotty, her owner – placed third with Tag in the 4-Year-Old Open and also banked another $120,000 in incentives offered by her sire, Metallic Cat.

“I think the mare won right about $180,000 at this show,” Scotty Rice said. “So it’s just been a blessing, Amazing show for us.”

Champayne Dreams won the 4-Year-Old Non-Pro Wednesday, July 29, with a 226, lifting her past Reserve Champions PRF Madera Model and Kyle Manion, who had the lead at the time with a 220.5.

“The mare was spot on,” Rice said of his run in the Non-Pro. “We started with a little red cow that got our run started and then I went back and got a little speckle-face Brahma that really tried her and the mare just took total control of her.

“I just went along for the ride.”

Metallic Cat Incentive

The Metallic Cat Incentive paid out money to the highest-advancing eligible Metallic Cat offspring in the Open, Non-Pro and Amateur of both the 4-Year-Old and 5/6-Year Old classes.

Champayne Dreams won $100,000 for being the highest advancing eligible horse in the Open and another $20,000 for being the top Metallic Cat in the Non-Pro.

The program offered by the stallion’s owner, Rocking P Ranch, paid out $300,000 in incentives.

Champayne Dreams History

Bred by Fults Ranch, of Amarillo, Texas, Champayne Dreams made her competition debut in the 2019 NCHA Futurity with Tag Rice. They made the semifinals, and then returned to the pen this spring to win an Open Novice class at a weekend cutting.

She’s by Metallic Cat and out of Hoo Rey For Dreams, a daughter of Dual Rey who earned more than $175,000 in the cutting pen. Prior to the Summer Spectacular, Hoo Rey For Dreams had an Equi-Stat produce record of $93,000 from eight earners.

The path Champayne Dreams blazed through the show now has her, unofficially, at more than a quarter million.
