Steve Anderson and Littlemak Do It Again
Author: Lauren Middleton
Steve Anderson and Littlemak (Starlights Gypsy x Justa Swiingin Gal) clinched their second major win in Fort Worth this year last night at the 2018 Metallic Cat NCHA Summer Spectacular! It was a tough finals with testy cattle but this duo handled it like pros.

Littlemak has been such a great horse for the Anderson and is no stranger to the winner’s circle at the Will Rogers, with several wins under his belt with both Steve and trainer John Burgess. He is very smart and does everything with a unique style we have come to expect from him, very low headed and smooth. He almost looks slow motion at times because of how smooth he is but that is not the case! He and Steve held a tough cow to finish their run last night, one that could have crushed his hopes for the win. It was not so though, it was their night and the little black mott did not stand a chance! Steve and his very supportive fan club and family were all smiles after the run all celebrating the victory! This Classic Non Pro Championship added $15,050 to this team’s record in the big pen.
Not letting that cow get by!
Reserve Champion was Carol Ward riding Crafty With Cows (High Brow CD x Miss Haulin Hickory) marking a 2018 first out in the finals! They collected a $13,693 check putting this gelding over the $300,000 mark in lifetime earnings.
