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. The show returned to the judging format where prior to each class, three different licensed judges were pulled from a hat. By keeping a very organized system, this new format moved quickly and provided a different judging panel in each class.


As a reported 165 strong entries made the gate call, Wednesday night was off and running with the reintroduced judging system.


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.
