The Elite Extravaganza barrel race, held November of 2012, was a preeminent equine event hosting over 2000 entries represented from 22 states plus Canada! The race awarded $94,197 and was ranked as one of the richest events of its kind in the country. The event showcased two $35,000.00 guaranteed Open races, a 10,000.00 Warm-up race, The JB Quarter Horses Creating Legends Futurity (which ranked in the top 15 futurity events produced in 2013), and the Texas Best Futurity Barrel Horse Sale.  It was a fantastic weekend for contestants, shoppers, vendors and the industry as a whole with an economic impact to the county of over $1 million.  The event was a huge success to contestants, sponsors and the local area. 
Our July 2013 event was a sell out and fan favorite! The inaugural Elite Youth Extravaganza and Red HOT Summer Run event, held July 18-21, 2013, was a huge success with 1,600 runs (a sold out event), in the Main races with contestants from more than 20 states and more than $130,000 in cash and prizes awarded, including a Sooner trailer, five custom Martin saddles, 15 buckles, Cruel Girl clothing packages, Razer Horse product awards and much more.  The race had a $1.6 million impact on the local area and with plans to grow the Youth Extravaganza even bigger as a premier Youth event in 2014!

The November 14-17, 2013 Elite Open Extravaganza  barrel event offered 3 open races with a guaranteed payout of over $90,000.  In the top 50 results of Main race 1 there were 10 NFR qualifiers and 4 WPRA World Champions -- Sherry Cervi (3x), Mary Walker, Kristie Peterson (4x), and Kay Blandford, who won the WPRA title during the PRCA year. We also hosted the JBQH Barrel Futurity attended by the top horses and riders in the nation, Brazil and Canada.  The Texas Select Barrel Horse Sale was also held during this event weekend! Hosting three prime time equine events in one week was a crowd pleaser for both customers and sponsors.
