The schedule was packed on Saturday, June 18, at the Pacific Coast Cutting Horse Association (PCCHA) Core Balance Derby and Classic/Challenge, and the competition was tough. VS Phantom Code bested a field of 20 horses with Equi-Stat Elite $2 Million Rider Beau Galyean in the saddle. Their score of 225.5 was worth a check for $18,000.
The Alvin and Becky Fults-bred stallion (Metallic Cat x Sweet Abra x Abrakadabracre), who is owned by Thomas Guinn, of Philadelphia, Mississippi, surpassed $100,000 with this win. The duo had not been able to clinch a victory since they topped the Derby Open at The Ike Derby and Classic in February, so Galyean was excited about their success in Las Vegas.
“We were able to put it all together today, and that’s been really tough to do with this horse,” Galyean said after his run.
