Vangilder Takes Derby Limited Non Pro Championship
Author: Lauren Middleton
The 2018 Metallic Cat NCHA Summer Spectacular is coming to a close, but we still have several Champions to crown! In the Derby Limited Non-Pro it was James Vangilder and Take It Eazee (Smooth As A Cat x Zee Dually) that claimed the victory marking a 220! The pair took home a nice $9,025 check along with their title! James is one competitor getting to enjoy the revolving door rule in that he has over $1 million in NCHA lifetime earnings. He was quick to say that those earnings do not reflect his current skill level as he took a little break from the sport for several years. As we all know though, cutting always draws you back in! There are many who can enjoy these rules the NCHA has in place making it easy to enjoy the industry to the fullest!
