Wednesday Night

SHELBYVILLE, TN.  Tonight the National Trainers’ Horse Show starts celebrating its 40th anniversary. The show returned to the judging format where prior to each class, three different licensed judges were pulled from a hat. As used last year, this judging format moved quickly and provided a different judging panel in each class.


Over 200 entries made the gate call on Wednesday evening consisting of 21 classes including the split of the Amateur Three-Year-Old Mares and Gelding. After a strong crowd and a great group of horses the 40th annual National Trainers’ Show was off and running.


Thursday night’s class sheet is scheduled for the, Amateur Specialty Stallions, Amateur Two-Year-Old Stallions and Amateur Three-Year-Old Stallions plus much more. Stay tuned for a complete list of show results and judges card only on The REPORT.
