Chad Bushaw’s victory in the 2017 NCHA Non Pro Futurity was anything but bittersweet as the crowd roared approvingly during his exciting run.
The Texan rode a mare he trained and called Bittersweet marking a 225 for the win.
Chad told CHTO’s Simone Cobb a great story about why he chose that name, but that he wouldn’t a change a thing. He said it’s been a few years since winning in the Will Rogers, making his victory sweeter still.
Bittersweet is a Metallic Cat out of Miss Sea Rey. The paid earned more than $61,000 for the win!
Reserve Champion went to Brandon Westfall on Smooth Lil Cowtown who scored 221 and took home $52,000.
