Road to the Horse put on a show as top colt starters stormed Cowtown Coliseum in 2021 as it navigated challenges from the global health pandemic. Success of the event and a nostalgic return to the founding venue left fans longing for more. To stay connected to its Texas roots, Road to the Horse expanded its event schedule in 2022, separating the Wild Card Challenge from the Colt Starting World Championship, that is held every March in Lexington, Kentucky. Road to the Horse will host the Wild Card Challenge on September 22-25, 2022.
The Road to the Horse Wild Card Challenge will feature six competitors, colts from the legendary 6666 Ranch and a cash purse of over $25,000. The Wild Card Challenge Champion will also be awarded an invitation to compete as a Championship Competitor at Road to the Horse 2023, where they will battle for their share of the $125,000 cash purse.
“Out of challenges, come opportunity. Road to the Horse 2021 was special, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring a part of Road to the Horse back to Texas in 2022,” stated Morris Equine Group President Tina Battock. “We’re thrilled to showcase a diverse lineup of talent and expand the opportunities for colt starters by allowing our Wild Card Challenge Champion a chance to compete for a World Championship title.”
Tickets on sale this Friday, June 10th to Roadies, and the Public on Monday, June 13th. You’ll also meet our Wild Card competitors Monday, June 13th! Stay tuned for ticket information.
