Trainers’ Show-One Down Three To Go

National Trainers’ Show-One Down Three To Go


SHELBYVILLE, TENN. The 39th annual National Trainers Show kicked off with anticipation and uncertainty in the air.

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.
