The 1963 NCHA Futurity saw repeat wins for rider Buster Welch and sire King Glo as Welch marked 218 on Chickasha Glo for C.E. Boyd Jr. Chickasha Glo was bred by Dr. Allen Hamilton, a non-pro who would later win the Open NCHA Futurity himself.
Chickasha Glo’s $4,277 winner’s check was a new record for a cutting horse, and Charlie Boyd earned his second straight $1,000 Breeders Award as the owner of King Glo.
