New for 2019 - NASTR Introduces Two New Challenge Series:

NASTR 50 Trifecta and the NASTR 30 Hat Trick

Paralleling the Triple Crown, to challenge our 50- and 30-mile riders, complete all three rides in either the 50-mile or the 30-mile distance at: NV Derby 30 / 50; NASTR 30 / 50; and Red Rock Rumble 30 / 50 in the same year to be awarded either the NASTR Trifecta or the NASTR Hat Trick.

As with the Triple Crown, you may nominate yourself and your horse (for a progressively greater fee) at any time up to the start of the Red Rock Rumble. And as with the Triple Crown, same or different horse and rider will be recognized, please see ride entries for the series rides for specific details.

Awards will be given for:

  • Rider and Horse Team (same horse) who complete all three rides
  • Rider (different horse) who completes all three rides
  • Horse (different rider) who completes all three rides
