Paint barrel racers, listen up! New for 2020, $25,000 has been added to the Ram Paint Barrel Racing Incentive Program 5D Barrel Racing Sweepstakes taking place at the 2020 APHA World Show, September 21-October 4, 2020, in Fort Worth, Texas.
The added money is sponsored by the Texas Paint Horse Breeders Association and includes a $5,000 Texas-bred incentive for the Top 10 fastest times of any Texas-foaled horse. To be eligible for the $5,000 Texas-bred money, the exhibitor must be a Texas Paint Horse Breeders Association member ($25 per year).
- All registered APHA horses can participate in the PBRIP Sweepstakes—Regular Registry and Solid Paint-Bred.
- The horse must be enrolled in PBRIP for 2020.
- World Show qualification is required to participate in the PBRIP Barrel Racing Sweepstakes, but it’s easy—just compete in two APHA-approved events during the qualifying period (June 1, 2019–May 31, 2020). PBRIP events count toward World Show qualification, and 4-year-old speed event horses do not have to qualify.
