Sired by our national champion Bettin Yer Smart (Jayhawk), out of Spark Plug Cat (Cat), this gelding has a bright future ahead of him. Born in August, Fly was started lightly as a 2 year old. As a 3 year old he was used for calving and ranch work, and was had a bit of reined cow horse training. In 2020, we expect to move him quickly forward in cow horse training.
Fly’s dam is a favorite at Long Pines. Cat is sired by the legendary stallion Shining Spark (NRCHA $3 million sire and $4 million NRHA sire). Cat’s dam is Catalyst Lady Di (NRHA money earner) by Taris Catalyst, a Doc Tari son who was the 1983 World Champion Open Jr. Cutter (NCHA LTE $181,373). We bought Cat as a broke broodmare, but we wanted to prove her prior to getting foals. So she entered the show ring in 2007 and proved her value: 9th in the Yearend NRCHA North Central Region Open Two Rein and ranked in the 2007 NRCHA National Standings with limited showing. She has an AQHA Open Performance ROM.
