Diamonds & Dirt™ Removes Cap on Slot Race Entries

Oct. 18, 2018 

In previous years the infamous Diamonds & Dirt Barrel Horse Classic™ Slot Race put a cap on the number of slots that could be purchased. This rule limited the number of futurity-eligible horses allowed to compete for a $100,000 credential to add to their resume. Once the slots were full, owners had the option to add their horse’s name to a waiting list, but were not guaranteed an entry unless a previously purchased slot was given up.

Things are changing in 2018: The cap on Slot Race entries has been removed, meaning an unlimited amount of slots can be purchased for futurity-eligible horses, and an unlimited number of horses per rider can be entered.

Any member of the general public can purchase a slot for a futurity-eligible horse(s). The Slot Race will commence on Friday, March 9th at the Extraco Events Center in Waco, Texas. Added money will be based upon the number of slots  purchased.

The first Slot Race payment is due on December 15th, 2017 and can be mailed to Diamonds & Dirt Barrel Horse Classic™, P.O. Box 724, Millican, Texas 77842. If you have questions please email
