The 2022 Badlands Bits & Spurs Futurity is set to pay $100,000 in Rapid City, South Dakota August 24-25, 2022.

The event, produced by Hall of Famer Bobby Harris and JD Gerard, paid $78,000 with limited promotion in 2021, and this year has drawn in dozens more entries to the Black Hills to showcase the best 4-year-olds in the country.

How Much Money is Added in 2022?

The 4-Year-Old Futurity has $20,000 in added money, while the 5-&-6-Year-Old Derby offers $5,000 in added money. With $1,000 entry fees per horse and 75% payback, the Badlands Bits & Spurs Futurity will dole out thousands to the winners.

Important Schedule Change!

“ALL OF THE HEADING will run Wednesday, Aug. 24 starting at 9 a.m. MST with the 5-&-6-Year-Old hHeading followed by the 4-Year-Old Heading. ALL OF THE HEELING will run Thursday, Aug. 25 starting at 9 a.m. MST with the 5-&-6-Year-Old Heeling followed by the 4-Year-Old Heeling.”

How is The Badlands Bits & Spurs Futurity Judged?

Unlike other futurities, the Badlands Bits & Spurs Futurity pays the go-rounds on time and the average on the judges’ scores.

“The way we have it set up, the judges start with a middle score with 70, and you can go 10 points up or down in every one of the categories: the box, the rate, the handle and the face,” Harris explained. “It’s not a specific where you can only lose one point. If you break a barrier it’s 5 points, if you rope a leg it’s a 3-point deduction.”
