Jerry Chilton Memorial Barrel Race


By SaraBeth Thompson

The third annual Jerry Chilton Memorial Barrel Race took place November 19-22, 2015 at the Paul Battle Arena in Tunica, MS. This Fortune 5 barrel race offered $19,000 in added money, no late fees, plus another $10,000 added to the Future Fortunes.

Future Fortunes is designed for eligible horses to have an additional opportunity to compete for an additional sidepot. Stallions can be nominated to become an eligible Future Fortunes stallion. All foals, yearlings and older offspring sired by newly enrolled 2015 Future Fortunes Stallions can be grandfathered into the program. Any Future Fortunes horse can be eligible for Future Fortunes bonus money at open events, regardless of age.

Marne Loosenort, Hazel, Kentucky, was one of the weekend’s lucky competitors. Marne had multiple 1D placings over the weekend on multiple horses in the Open division, Futurity, and the Slot Race. The Plenty Tiny Ranch, home of Marne and her husband Bob, is packed with horses in training, for sale, as well as tune-ups offered on outside horses. Marne’s husband, Bob, also offers hot, cold, and corrective shoeing. The ranch consists of 44 acres, a state of the art indoor training facility, and two outdoor riding arenas.

The Fortune 5 Barrel Racing Production Company has been family owned and operated for over 12 years. Jerry and Brenda Chilton, along with their grandson and barrel racer Ty Marks, began producing Fortune 5 Barrel Races back in 2002. Jerry Chilton passed in April 2013, a sorrowful event for a huge part of the barrel racing community. When the Chilton’s first offered this Memorial Barrel Race, barrel racers from all over the surrounding areas flooded in to support the Chilton family. They strive to make their barrel races fun and family oriented. The Fortune 5 Barrel Races offer chances to make three runs and an average payout.
