2D Ranch Riding Jackpot Class Format
All classes run concurrently with the regularly scheduled AQHA class on the date shown with 3 judges. Entry fee is $50.
Must pay the specified entry fee by 5 pm the day prior to the class. All added money and entry fees will be divided equally between the 1D and 2D Divisions. 100% of entry fees for the respective Ranch Riding jackpot class will be paid back. Each D pays three places to the highest composite scoring horses entered in the respective jackpot class. 1D is the highest 3 scoring composite horses. 2D payout begins at 21 points below the highest composite score.
Example: In a three judge Ranch Riding class, the high scoring horse scores a 74, 74 and a 76 for a Composite score of 224. The (jackpot entered) high score horse and next two highest scores will split the 1D purse. 2D Payout will begin 21 points less at 203 and the three highest scores at 203 or below will be paid the 2D payout. Each payout will be split 45%, 35%, 20%.
Ties: Total Payout will be split amongst tied horses. A minimum of three places paid. Example: If five horses score a 203, the total purse will be split among the five horses. If two horses score a 203, 1st and 2nd money will be totaled, then split evenly between the two tied horses. If 3rd place had three tied horses, third place money will be split evenly among the tied horses.
