Slot race has sold out the last 2 years in a row
- See our FaceBook page for updates
THE GLOW Slot, 4D & Charity Barrel Racing Event is Canada’s largest Annual Barrel Racing Event of its kind! BC’s first ever 100% payback, 4D Equal Payout Slot Race offers 250 Slots for $250 each to barrel racers from all over BC, Alberta, and the northern states the chance to run for $62,500 prize money in the slot race alone!
New for 2018 was the Bill Robinson Memorial Keeping the Dream Alive 2D Futurity with $8500 Added & 2D Derby with $2500 Added. Total payout in 2018 was $23,463.80! Bill & Heidi Robinson of Wildwood Ranches have been supporters of our Event from the beginning and were instrumental in the planning of these two races. We are so very proud to be “Keepin’ The Dream Alive”! Originally from Chilliwack, BC, Bill had horses running in his blood. His father brought the first registered Quarter horse stallion into Canada in 1957 and in 1962 Bill purchased his first colt and has been raising top quality performance horses ever since. One of their studs, Jet of Honor, was the number one sire of barrel racers in the world and at the age of 16 sold for $62,000! Today, Wildwood Ranches has a new rising star, a Palomino stallion born in 2010, Guys Casanova Cowboy, own son of Frenchmans Guy. There were six Wildwood Ranches offspring out of the seventy-one entries that competed at the first annual Bill Robinson Memorial Futurity & Derby – we can’t wait to see how many we have in 2019!
The Glow’s signature Glow In The Dark Charity Barrel Race is definitely the most fun you can have Barrel Racing in the Dark! Spectators can watch Barrel Racers of all ages and abilities race in a “glowing” arena while raising money for one Barrel Racer who has fallen on hard times. Barrel Racers helping Barrel Racers by Barrel Racing! The 2018 recipient chosen by the racers was Laura James. This wife, mother and all-around cowgirl was tragically affected by the flooding last spring leaving her and her family without running water or drivable access to their home. This one race raised $857 for Laura James and her family and it meant so much to have her there lending a hand in any way possible. Please watch the AMAZING video of this Event Sponsored and Directed by Monique Vek of M Sport 6.
