World Champion barrel racer Lance Graves announced that the Coushatta Grand Casino and Resort, located in Kinder, La., will once again host his annual Lance Graves Pro Classic event, which will take place Feb. 9-13, 2011.

“We are very pleased to have the Coushatta as our title sponsor once again,” Graves said, “and we are equally as thrilled to have Bob and Darian Burt, owners of AQHA stallion Dash Ta Fame, as the title sponsor once again of the NBHA Super Show portion of the Lance Graves Pro Classic.”    

The LG Pro Classic is the third largest paying barrel racing event in the world. It features a $220,000 Invitational Futurity Slot Race, a $20,000-Added 2D Sale Futurity, a $10,000-Added 2D BFA Futurity, a $500-Added BFA Derby side-pot, the Dash Ta Fame $5,000-Added NBHA Super Show Open 4D race, a $1,500-Added 4D Youth race and a prestigious barrel horse sale produced by Going Big Time Productions.  

“Bob and I are thrilled to once again be a part of the LG Pro Classic,” Darian Burt said. “Many Barrel racers have placed their faith and trust in our stallion, Dash Ta Fame, and we feel a great way to give back is to be the title sponsor of this amazing open barrel race. Dash Ta Fame’s offspring win beyond the futurity arena, earning huge paychecks in open competitions as well. Dash Ta Fame open horses are tough and are the best of the best.”
