Carol Waters of Red Rock, Oklahoma, is no stranger to the pay window. After a strong debut at the Barrel Futurities of America World Championship, she and her homebred mare Speedin For Cash have made successful runs at the Diamonds & Dirt Barrel Futurity, the LG Pro Classic and, most recently, the Panty Raid Futurity, which took place April 8–10 in Springfield, Ohio; there, the duo took home a check for more than $1,000.
Speedin For Cash is a 2012 sorrel tobiano mare by Got Caught Speedin (QH) and out of Cash Sign. Carol is incredibly happy with how the mare is developing, and she sees a winning future for the homebred.
“She’s coming along super nice. She’s getting more experienced, so she’s getting faster,” Carol said. “She’s slowly been working her way up from placing at the bottom to getting at the top.”
Carol has done all of the mare’s training, and she sees improvement in Speedin For Cash with every run.
“She’s super easy to ride. All you do is sit and grab the horn, and she turns the barrels,” Carol said. “It’s pretty exciting. A lot of people know that I raised her from a baby because I ran her mother, who was a Paint Horse. They’re all excited for me, and I’m excited too.”
