As promised, this month’s article features Delaney Wolf, wife of Paul Wolf who along with his good team roping mare, Nemo, was the subject of last month’s Equine Superstars. This month we learn about Delaney’s cutting mare, Ivy.

Ivy is the barn name for Stop Ichin, a 13-year-old mare sired by Cat Ichi, a son of High Brow Cat who earned more than $300,000 cutting and has produced $5.5 million in earners. She is out of a dam named Sassy Soda, a nonpro cutting mare who won about $70,000.

Like Paul, Delaney attended Tarleton State University in Stephenville and was a member of and competed on the Collegiate Stock Horse Team. During that time, they were taking lessons from Jerry Palmer, a cutting horse trainer in the area when a good friend, Marty McCormick, who trained Nemo for team roping, suggested they go look at Ivy.
