“I had a good day,” Summerdale, Ala., cutter Austin Shepard said Tuesday night after advancing four horses to the Augusta Futurity Open finals, to be held Saturday night. Shepard swept the top three spots with horses sired by High Brow CD, the stallion he rode to win the 2008 National Cutting Horse Association Futurity Open. The fourth horse, sired by One Time Pepto, notched the first round’s seventh-best score.
