A short time before the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Futurity, Ryann Packard changed her horse’s registered name to Weezy F Baby, because “he just needed a little something extra.” The pair brought that something extra with them all the way through the Non Pro Futurity and poured on some heat during the finals to win with a 224.5 score.

For those who may not be fans of rap music, Weezy F Baby has also been used as a nickname for American rapper Lil Wayne.

“His name was originally Highbrow Dragon, which was also super fitting,” Packard said.

Although his papered name changed, his barn name lovingly remained as Dragon. Weezy F Baby is by Dual Reyish and out of Shes A High Brow (by High Brow Cat). The horse was started by Marcus Spencer and further trained by EquiStat Elite $1 Million Rider Cullen Chartier.

“He is a pretty wild little horse and he’s really got some crazy tendencies to him but you’re not going to find a horse that’s got more try, more heart and more desire to go and do his job and then some,” Packard said.

When she walked into the herd, her goal was to keep everything simple, but she knew she had to give Dragon a chance to show off. Her plan paid off and her herd help picked some great cows that challenged the horse just enough to mark that 224.5. In his future, the sorrel has earned plenty of time off before any other big shows.

Packard wanted to thank Cullen Chartier and McCall Banner for the countless hours they put into Dragon and herself, as well as her herd help, her mother, her family and all those who supported her. She and Weezy F Baby will take home $71,114.61 for the championship.
