The American Rope Horse Futurity Association’s World Championship Short Round is STACKED with some of the best young head horses in the game—and the ARHFA head horse pedigrees are stacked with great sires, too. Here are the ARHFA results so far and the bloodlines of the head horses in the World Champion

  • Three sires have two offspring on the head side: Woody Be Tuff has two offspring in the short round: CR CALIFORNIA TUFF ridden by Clay Logan at 23rd call and METALLIC HARDWOOD ridden by Kaleb Driggers at third call. Bet Hesa Cat has BET SMART CAT with Andy Holcomb at seventh call and BETN ON A HICKORY at 20th call with JoJo LeMond. Bama Cat has Bama Montana is at 15th callback with Jordan Allyn and Flat Baroquenbama a 22nd with Wesley Thorp.
  • Nu Cash is the maternal grandsire of MYRICHCOUSINVINNIE ridden by Andy Holcomb to eighth callback and DT NU ACE N THE HOLE, ridden by Les Oswald at 19th call. He’s the only maternal sire to have two in the short round.
  • More than half of the horses in the short round are only 4-year-olds—14 in total!
  • On the run side of things, Miles Baker is riding GOLDE RUSH at 21st call (by First Down Dash out of the Corona Cartel mare Bovet), Jordan Allyn is 17th riding FIVE BARS OF GOLD by Five Bars Cartel by Corona Cartel, Bobby Mote is 9th call on LEAD ON by Corona Cartel out of the First Down Dash mare Charm Dance. Kaden Richard is fifth call on SHES MISCHEVIOUS by Winners Version out of the Streakin La Jolla mare Miss Mischievous. Second Painted Sign—by PYC Paint Your Wagon—sired A PAINTED SUNSET at second callback with Tate Kirchenschlager, while Brookstone Bay is the sire Brookstones Sunset, dam of the high call horse, REYS SUNSET, ridden and owned by Rhen Richard.
