Derby Non Pro

In the Derby Non-Pro Ty Moore and Scantly Clad (Metallic Cat x Scoot A Lil Closer) were victorious marking a 220 for the Championship!  He and his mare were also in it to win it starting out their run in an aggressive way.  Ty showed the judges he wanted to win and the mare handled the pressure with ease.  She is a pretty mover and always bright on a cow.  Like so many others coming out of the Moore’s program, she was born and raised on their place.  There have been countless success stories coming out of this renowned program and the Moore’s are mounted to win year after year.  This win added $13,734.49 to the young mare’s earnings for the year but it certainly will not be her last time in the spotlight!
