If the riders’ faces showed anything, it was raw determination to beat the clock! As the Kudzu Klassic barrel racing series, presented by Coldwater Cross, continued with two more shows in March, riders at the March 19th show were feeling the pressure to accumulate as many points as possible, leading to the final show May 21. High point riders in the series are awarded a saddle for first place and a buckle for second place in the Open, Youth, Adult, and Master Classes. Plus, each show offers added money in these divisions.
The shows have been averaging about 420 entries each this year. Last year’s Memorial Day race had 567 rides, and organizer Beau McCoy expects even more entries this year. There are three more shows in the series: April 2 and 16, and May 21.
