Rollz Royce Scores Another Jewel at NCHA Summer Spectacular

As the first horse walked into the pen for set No. 1 of the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Metallic Cat Summer Spectacular Classic/Challenge Open finals, the audience buzzed with anticipation.

The National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Super Stakes Classic Open finals took place on April 6 before the Open finals, and the field was stacked with some of the best 5- and 6-year-old horses in the industry.   The first three entries out had a tough time with the cattle, but draw five, Second Spot and Lloyd Cox, blew everyone out of the water when they marked a 225.

Rollz Royce and Beau Galyean entered the pen as the first draw in the second set, and they made easy work of their cattle to the tune of a 228. No other team could match their score, and Rollz Royce added another title to his already impressive record. After just missing the Super Stakes Open title in 2018,...
