Incentive drafts have helped to boost the success of the Dalby ASH sale.

THE Dalby ASH sale has become one of the top events for the breed, partly due to the incentive drafts, which have grown from $30,000 to an $80,000 prize pool in the past 10 years.

The open draft is worth $30,000, with the winner taking home $5000 and a $4000 trophy saddle, as well as another $1000 awarded for best heritage stock horse.

“The incentives encourage more people to come back to the event each year and creates a family atmosphere,” sale chairman Jim Ryan said.

A highlight of the competition is the feedlot challenge, a three-person team draft which has 20 entries this year.

“We normally take 10 team, but it’s become really popular because it creates competition between feedlots. It costs $1000 to enter a team, with half of the prize pool going to the first three placegetters and the other half to the preferred charity of the winning team. 

“It’s a way for us to give back to the feedlots that supply cattle for the drafts, because without them, we can’t run the event.”
