About the Ranch Gelding Stakes & Sale
Underwritten By Espuela de Plata, D&D Texas Outfitters, and Wrangler.
During the Ranch Gelding Stakes and Sale a select number of high-quality geldings will be judged and scored on their ability to perform several skills and maneuvers related to actual ranch work. This includes roping, opening gates, cutting, and handling ability.
All geldings entered in the show and sale will be judged on their ability to perform certain tasks routinely associated with ranch work. This competition will be carried out before an audience of prospective buyers making their selections for the auction, which immediately follows the competition and awards. Awards will consist of a total estimated purse of $18,000, including cash and prizes dispersed from first through eighth places.
