The Mercuria/National 亚博在线登入Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) World Series of Cutting is always an exciting event,6月16日，与太平洋海岸切马协会（PCCHA）核心平衡德比一起举办的这场比赛也不例外。亚博在线登入Nine entrants made a go at the Open title,but it was Cromed Out Cat and Geoffrey "Spud" Sheehan who landed on top from the No.1抽签，marking a 229 that stayed in first throughout the finals.
"It was pretty cool," the native Australian said of his score."It was one of those things that everything goes right to mark a big score.有时候如果不好，you don't mark a big score,but it went good.
“每次我进入决赛，我想尽我所能，”他继续说。"I usually try to cut the best cows I think I can.有时候太多了，但昨晚他们说得对。”
"I want to win with the best run," he said."I knew it was probably going to be hard for someone to [mark higher],但我真的很喜欢看精彩的比赛，too."
Cromed Out猫是由Jackson Land and Shoults LLC培育的，由Sheehan的雇主所有。比奇福克牧场，位于威德福，德克萨斯州。Sheehan started the mare as a 2-year-old and said she has been very special.
“她可能是我见过的最好的马，”他说，“每次我给她看，she's always going to give me everything she's got."
This is the mare's last year in the limited age events.She and Sheehan have racked up $176,563 throughout their career together,包括他们在Mercuria的9025美元薪水。她的教练说她很喜欢拉斯维加斯的南点竞技场，当她在2016年PCCHA Futureity的德比公开赛中并列获胜在她赢得今年的Mercuria冠军之前，她曾是2017年展会上的经典/挑战公开赛冠军。
Sheehan said he probably won't continue down the Mercuria road as Crome (眉毛高的猫x Peptos Fancy Jewel xPeptoboonsmal) will likely retire to raising foals after she ages out.She already has a Dual Rey yearling colt and a Dual Rey filly on the ground,and he's excited to see how her babies turn out and which crosses work best on the mare.
仍然，he appreciated the Mercuria events and expressed his appreciation to Mercuria for supporting the NCHA.
"I think the Mercuria's a great deal," Sheehan said.“穿上它们的人，he's helped the 亚博在线登入cutting so much.我想我们都需要在他为那些老马所做的事情上支持他。它给了你更多的机会去赢得更多的钱，它们的价值更大。After the aged events there's still life because of having the Mercurias."
他还感谢他在竞技场的帮助——T.J.Good,Grant Setnicka,Cline Allen and John Mitchell – and outside the arena – Madison Crum,who owns Crome and got the mare ready to show,and Chris London,who works for Sheehan.
"Winning like that,it's all your help that do it for you," he said."They'll help you win,你会尽力帮助他们，too."
