​Point System for Determining Annual​ LQHBA Champions

  • 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 a LQHBA Champion
  • If the highest money earner’s new point total is not the highest (by category), co-champions for that category (the highest money earner and the highest AQHA point total) will be awarded.
