The World Cutter & Chariot Racing Championship at Golden Spike

August 20, 2019


It’s basically drag racing with horses is
what it is. My name is Jeff Galbraith, I’m a starter here
at worlds and also through nationals Cutter association which is in Rigby Idaho. This is the World Championship Cutter and
Chariot Racing Association. We are here at the world championships in
Ogden, Utah, Golden Spike Event Center for a five day meet and this is the second day,
Sunday. We will race again the 23rd, 24th and 25th. The starter is the guy that pulls handle,
he make sure all the horses are set and straight. All the…everybody is doing their job and
then he lets the horses out, he opens the gate. This is a quarter mile, they will run it in
about 20, 22, 23 seconds on an average time. Very fast, they run about 38 mph. There is no money, there’s prizes, there’s
trophies and blankets but as far as actual cash, there is no money in this. It’s all for fun, it’s all a hobby.
