Trainers Could Earn New Car or $10,000 Cash Bonus in Virginia Horse Center Trainer Incentive Program


Lexington, Va. - March 10, 2016 - With a full-range of classes offered and great facilities, Saddlebred, Hackney and Roadster trainers already have good reason to plan to attend the Bonnie Blue National, Roanoke Valley and ASHAV Horse Shows at the Virginia Horse Center. Now, the Horse Center is giving one more reason to plan to attend these shows for 2016 - a newly instated, and lucrative, trainer incentive program!


Trainers attending each of the three horse shows will be entered into a drawing to win:

  • First Prize: a two-year lease on a $40,000 vehicle or the option to pick the second prize and pass the car lease on to the second prize winner
  • Second Prize: $10,000 cash
  • Third Prize: $10,000 cash

The more horses brought to each of the three shows by the trainer, the more opportunities they have to win! The opportunities to win begin at the Bonnie Blue National, to be held May 11-14, followed by the Roanoke Valley Horse Show on June 20-25 and ASHAV on Sept. 29-Oct. 2.
