The 37-year difference between Tarin Rice and his great uncle, Ronnie Rice dissolved last night in the 2012 NCHA Futurity at Will Rogers Coliseum, Fort Worth, Tex. Tarin is the second youngest rider in the event’s 51-year history to win the championship; Ronnie, 60, is the oldest, and second only to Buster Welch in number of Futurity wins (3). He Bea Cat and Tarin scored 222.5 points late in the first set of cattle to over-write Catbaloo’s early 221-point lead under Lloyd Cox. Tarin’s score was never threatened until Ronnie went to the herd as the next-to-last rider in the last set and rode out with 222.5 points. CR Tuff Hearted Cat was bred and is owned by Center Ranch, Centerville, Tex., who owns and stands her sire, Woody Be Tuff.
