All live shows are unique in their own way, but the Region X Championships (TRXC, pronounced "Trixie") is truly a show like no other. For one thing, this big two day show is actually two shows in one: an Open Show and an invitation only Championship.
Here's how it works. Entries are brought up to the table for the open show. This is judged as usual, with NAN cards awarded to the top two entries and flats for placings one through ten.
Additionally, The first and second placed horses also receive tickets for the Stakes class.
