2009 NRCHA Derby Entries Up - Necessitates Schedule Change

The National Reined Cow Horse Association has announced that entries for the 2009 NRCHA Derby, to be held June 16-21 at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, California, have risen and exceeded original expectations. Amidst fears of falling numbers for both participants and payouts due to the current economy, the increase in entries is a sign of stability for NRCHA produced events. However, the growth of the premier 4- and 5-year-old event necessitated a few changes.

"Due to the increase in entries over what we had planned for, the NRCHA Board elected to modify the current Derby schedule so that everyone - exhibitors, staff, and especially our judges - can be alert every day of the show. As it was, before the change the first day would have been a sixteen-hour day," noted NRCHA President Lyn Anderson.

There were 101 entries in the Derby Open Division in 2008 and it was expected to see about a 10% drop. Instead the entries shot up to an all-time high of 110. With $221,000 added to the event, the payout should be around the half million dollar mark.

The following changes were made to the schedule:

-The Non Pro, Intermediate Non Pro, and Amateur Derby Herd Work was moved to Wednesday, June 17.

-The Non Pro, Intermediate Non Pro, and Amateur Derby Rein Work moved to Thursday, June 18.

-The Non Pro, Intermediate Non Pro, and Novice Non Pro Bridle Rein & Cow Work moved to Saturday, June 20.
