The World Conformation Horse Breeders Championship Futurity closed with the produce-of-dam class, a crowd favorite similar to the WCHA get-of-sire class at the AQHA World Championship Show. For the second year in a row, the same mare has won the class.

In the WCHA produce-of-dam class, two offspring represent one mare. This year, judges Brian Ellsworth and Larry Hansch placed the class identically, putting Imagine Me In Lace on top for Karen M. Johnson of Burns, Tennessee.

Imagine Me In Lace is a 1999 bay mare by Image Of Kid and out of Conclusive Lace by Conclusives Beau. She was bred by Marcus B. Tidey of Dover, Florida.

She was represented two full sisters Karen bred that were sired by I Gotta Cool Secret: Karen’s 2013 chestnut filly Gotta Love A Secret and the 2012 bay filly Imagine My Secrets, owned by Rodney J. Carmical of Nashville, Tennessee.

Second place in the class went to Conclusive Ruthie, a 1997 sorrel mare by Mr Conclusion and out of Skipa Ruthie by Ima Cool Skip. She was bred by Crown Center Farms Inc. of Columbia, Missouri, and is owned by Chester W. Prince of Palmetto, Florida.

Conclusive Ruthie was represented by PF Chrome Rimz, a 2013 sorrel gelding by Chromed Up, and by PF Execute A Win, a 2012 sorrel gelding by Execute. Chester bred and owns PF Chrome Rimz. Lana Brooks of Clark, Missouri, bred PF Execute A Win, owned by Tammy Smith of Palmetto, Florida.

The futurity, September 19-21 in Tunica, Mississippi, was followed again this year by the Big Money Futurity.

The WCHA, an AQHA alliance partner, is offering three new WCHA owner-breeder-exhibitor conformation halter classes at the World Show this year. The winners of these classes will be recognized as WCHA world champions.

The three classes are owner-breeder-exhibitor weanling geldings November 20; weanling colts November 21; and weanling fillies November 22.
