USTA Roadster Class at 2022 WCHS Nomination Deadline Approaches

The US Trotting Association, and many generous enthusiasts who want to see the roadster discipline continue to thrive, sponsor the USTA Roadster Class, one of the roadster industry’s most celebrated and lucrative-prize classes, to be competed at the 2022 Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse Show, held August 20 – 27, at Freedom Hall, in Louisville, Ky.

Featuring $25,000 estimated added prize money, the prestigious class is a favorite, as it showcases horses that are fresh to the roadster-to-bike show ring, often soon to become tomorrow’s biggest stars.

But first, your 100 percent Standardbred horse must be nominated; that, with accompanying $50 payment, must occur by June 1. After June 1, a $200 penalty applies; no nominations will be accepted after June 15. Entry to the class at World’s Championship Horse Show and $165 fee are required by the horse show’s entry deadline; and, a declaration fee of $300 is due by 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 20, at the horse show office.

It’s one of the most exciting Standardbred roadster classes of the year, and we hope you’ll be there with us. Full details and forms are here (scan with your smartphone) or at Roadster.Show/usta-roadster-classic.
