Trial Entry Information

Trial Premium List

This is a two-day trial to be held over three days. You may enter only two days of the three. There is no guarantee that you will get the specific days you entered, although we will try to accommodate everyone’s preference.

Lottery entry deadline is Friday, August 5, 2022 11:59 PM PDT. Final closing is Friday, August 19, 2022 11:59 PM PDT

All Regular entries received by the lottery deadline will be treated equally. If Regular entry limits are exceeded by that date, a random drawing from all Regular entries received will be held on August 5, 2022.

All entries received after August 5, 2022, and up to the August 19 closing date, will be accepted on a first-come basis if the trial has not filled, or will be added to the wait list if the trial is full.

Important notes:
When you enter the trial before the lottery deadline, your entry will automatically go on the waitlist and no payment will be taken. If the trial is full on the lottery date, there will be a draw for trial positions. You will be notified when your entry is confirmed after the lottery date, and at that time you will go back to PerfDog to pay your entry fee.
If you are entering after the lottery deadline and the trial is full, your entry will go automatically to the waitlist. If trial space becomes available for you, you will be notified and can then pay your fee through PerfDog.

All entries will be made through PerfDog.com
