6.  Failure to answer three (3) gate calls will result in officials scratch.

7.  A horse may enter each race only once (exception for FAMILY RULE).  You may enter as many horses per race as you wish. The same horse may be ridden by more than one family member as long as the contestants are members of the same immediate family (husband, wife, children and grandchildren) and may not be entered on any other horse in the race.  The same horse may not be ridden more than twice during the same race

The $50 total late fee "CAP" for contestant horses for the weekend as long as all late entries are made in the show office prior to the contestant’s first run of the weekend. Late entries will have a separate draw and run after pre-entries.

10.  There will be a $25 one time Processing Fee per contestant for entire event. The Processing Fee will be non-refundable should the contestant withdraw from the race for any reason.

12. You will no longer be required to present a valid vet release or doctor’s release in order to qualify for this refund; however, you must notify the show office before the first horse runs in each race to be released from.  At that time your entry will be shown as a scratch and the entry fee will be deducted from the payout for that race.  Your refund check will be ready by the end of that race.  We appreciate our contestants and hopefully this is one way we can show our appreciation and benefit both of us.             
*It is our hopes that this change will encourage our contestants that have not been able to pre-enter our shows for that reason.*

2017 Super Tour  ~MOST CONSISTENT~  Award Rules

1.  In order to be eligible for "The Most Consistent Horse Award", a horse/rider combo has to enter all 3 races in a weekend at a D&D Barrel Production event and have 3 clean runs (a no-time makes you ineligible).  Award will be presented at the end of the 3rd day.  Winner must be present.  If a called winner is not present, the next place winner will be announced.  This will be done until the winner is present and claim their award.  The award for most consistent will be a Certificate for entry fees and Processing Fee for one horse at a future race in 2017.  Value of the certificate will be $155.

2.  "The Most Consistent Horse Award" is calculated by taking the positive differences (absolute value) between run #1 and run #2, between run #2 and run #3 and between run #1 and run #3.  The 3 differences are then added together to get your time difference for the weekend.  See Examples below for more details.
