LQHBA To Use New Selection Format for Champions in 2015


LQHBA will uses a new format this year to select their year-end racing champions.



ALEXANDRIA, LA—NOVEMBER 3, 2015—LQHBA Executive Director Tony Patterson announced today the Louisiana Quarter Horse Breeders' Association (LQHBA) will use a new selection format beginning in 2015 to determine the association’s annual Champions.

The formula to be used beginning with selections of the 2015 champions will be as follows:

  • Take the AQHA Points of the highest money earner by category
  • Add 10 points for winning a stake race
  • Add 5 points for finishing 2nd in a stakes race
  • Add 3 points for finishing 3rd in a stake race
  • Add 1 point for qualifying to a Futurity or Derby Final
  • If the highest money earner’s (by category) new point total is the highest for that category – then that horse is an LQHBA Champion
  • If the highest money earner’s new point total is not the highest (by category) – then we will have co-champions for that category (the highest money earner and the highest AQHA point total)

This new format was approved at the September LQHBA board meeting held at Evangeline Downs.
