What are the Relay  Races?

  • This fast paced event will happen nighty July 9 – 12, 2018  immediately following the final chuckwagon heat of the night.  Five teams  will compete in a relay exchange race where each team sends one rider racing  three times around the track – changing horses each lap in a chaotic exchange  zone in front of the main grandstand.  The winning team is the first rider  across the line on his third horse.
