East Tennessee Fall Classic Sponsors Riders’ Cup



The East Tennessee Fall Classic will sponsor the Riders’ Cup Three-Year-Old Mares & Geldings division in 2011.  This marks the eighth division sponsored in the 2011 and will qualify the East Tennessee Fall Classic as a triple-point show.  In addition to the East Tennessee Fall Classic, which will be held sometime in October 2011, the Delta Fall Classic and Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration will be triple point shows and sponsors in 2011.

Two divisions, Two-Year-Old Mares & Geldings and Aged Mares & Geldings, remain available for sponsorship.  In 2010 only four divisions were sponsored.  Each division is $2,500 to sponsor and the 10 divisions total a beginning jackpot of $25,000 that trainers will ride for in 2011.

Other sponsors in 2011 include the Molly Walters Family, Andrew Waites Family, Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration, Delta Fall Classic, Quality Exteriors and Western Sky Walking Horses.  For information on sponsoring the remaining two categories call the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association office at 931-684-5866.
