Gulf Coast Announces "Two-Year-Old" Triple Crown



This year's two-year-old colt winning the "Two-Year-Old Stallion Open" in the competition at Panama City Beach will be eligible to win $10,000 if that colt also wins the PC Splash in Fayetteville, Tenn. and the Two-Year-Old World Grand Championship at The Celebration. The only restriction to winning is that eight or more colts must be entered and shown at each of the three in those two-year-old classes.

"This Triple Crown is just another way we thought we could incentivize the trainers to show their best two-year-old colts early for people to begin watching the who's who of the two-year-olds," Board of Directors Ben Lee says. "We hope you will join us at the Panama City Beach shows to see these wonderful Tennessee Walking Horses "strut" their stuff into the Triple Crown."

The Triple Crown winner will also be entitled to a hunting party for four people at Hilltop Farm Hunting Preserve for a red carpet quail hunt during the fall 2011 quail hunting season, with accommodations at an 8,500 square foot mansion on top of a 400 foot waterfall.

Join us at the Gulf Coast Charity to kickoff this Triple Crown event, April 21-23, 2011 in Panama City Beach for fun in the sun and prize money!
