Tarin Rice & HR Cats Starlight

Not far behind Adan in the lineup at the Cattlemen’s was Tarin Rice and HR Cats Starlight. They finished third in the Open 5/6 finals in Graham with a 220 and won the Gelding Incentive. HR Cats Starlight (High Brow Cat x Nurse Gray x Grays Starlight) is owned by EJ Huntley who won the Non-Pro at the event last year on the horse! The pretty sorrel gelding started his career off making the NCHA Futurity Non-Pro semifinals and the Amateur finals with Huntley as a 3-year-old. Tarin has since made numerous finals on the horse and was the 2017 Breeder’s Invitational Co-Champion on him with a 224.5! To date, HR Cats Starlight has earned more than $150,000.
    Other Open finalists included Mr Stormy Cat, ridden by Chris Bates, and Chromed Out Cat, ridden by Spud Sheehan. Congrats also to the Open Derby finalists: Beau Galyean and Cheshire The Cat, Russ Westfall and RN Starlights Cat, Spud Sheehan and Candi Cat & Prowling, and Pedro Ornelas on Little Jo Cat!
