After taking off the 2022 show season, the 2021 National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Open Horse of the Year and 2020 NCHA Futurity Open Champion All Spice (Once In A Blu Boon x Show Biz Kitty x High Brow Cat) returned to the arena with a bang on Jan. 31 at The Ike Derby and Classic held in West Monroe, Louisiana.
Drawing ninth in the first set, the mare and Adan Banuelos of Granbury, Texas, marked an insurmountable 228 to kick off her Classic career and take home the 5/6-Year-Old Open Championship and a paycheck of $13,014 for owners Teton Ridge, who purchased All Spice in July 2021.
During the 2021 show season, the mare bred by Royce Stallcup, of Seymour, Texas, earned Derby Open victories at the Pacific Coast Cutting Horse Association (PCCHA) Futurity, El Rancho Futurity and the Cattlemen’s Derby. In addition, she achieved Open Reserve honors at the PCCHA Derby and The Ike.
A winner of $384,304, the mare ended 2021 atop the NCHA Open Horse of the Year Standing with 630 points.
All Spice is one of six money-earners out of the mare Show Biz Kitty, a daughter of High Brow Cat whose foals have earned more than $1.4 million. In addition to All Spice, the mare’s leading money-earners are NCHA Futurity Open Reserve Champion Badboonarising ($367,101, by Once In A Blu Boon) and multiple limited-age event winner Rollz Royce ($353,872, by Dual Smart Rey).
