Finding the combo of good horse and good income may be hard at $250.

Horses are expensive and many people don’t have $250 which is disposable, and if they do they have to have the horse. Given if you have the money to buy the 1D horse you will likely have the credit/money to cover the entry fee.

Let’s be honest people complain at $40 and up. And when it comes down to it will they pay up?

We understand some people may not be able to afford the fees but we are not making anyone enter. You do not need a 1D horse, as this slot race will be 3D. We think its a great chance for those who are interested to come and challenge themselves and their horses and win a large pot.

All the info on the SLOT RACE and 4D BARREL BASH is also posted on the jackpot section in the Round Pen. You can print out the entry form for the slot race and mail to the address provided.

As the SLOT RACE fills up, I will keep everybody posted to how many slots are filled/vacant.

I think its great that its a go ahead :-D Another thought for the people that think the entry fee is too high is that we pay higher fees for events like ABRA finals, CBHI ect... and they still get a fantasitc amount of entries that come each year. I believe if people can run for a higher amount of money then the higher entry fee is worth it plus its a 3D so you don't have to have the fastest horse to run at this unlike some of the slot races in the US.
