Ichis My Choice Earns Mercuria Open Title

By September 18, 2016April 28th, 2022No Comments

Ichis My Choice has been wildly successful in her career so far, and she added another title to her résumé while at the El Rancho Futurity. She and Equi-Stat Elite $2 Million Rider Grant Setnicka were the final draw in the Mercuria/National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) World Series of Cutting Open finals and they did not disappoint. They marked a 229 and claimed the Championship.

The title came with a check for $13,676, which brings the 4-year-old mare’s lifetime record to more than $250,000. Ichis My Choice (Cat Ichi x My Little Abra x Abrakadabracre), who was bred by EE Ranches of Texas and is owned by J Five Horse Ranch, is the only money-earner out of My Little Abra and she is now the second-highest earner on Cat Ichi’s offspring record.

“I drew up last in a set of steers, which usually isn’t the most desirable spot to be,” Setnicka said. “I try to work that mare and keep her accurate. She’s really cowy and quick, so I just tried to keep her calm and smooth.”
