What is Poker Ranch Sorting?
Poker Ranch Sorting is the fastest growing equine sport in the world, and it’s coming down under to the Toowoomba Showgrounds!
Imagine the familiar sports of 2-man Ranch Sort, Team Penning or Sort and Rope. Now imagine instead of a number on the cattle, you’re looking at specially designed giant playing cards on the cows. It is your team’s challenge to make your best possible five card poker hand by either sorting or penning five card tagged cows in the fastest possible time. Your team is rewarded substantially for speed as well as the value of your hand.
The feature will have heats that will go over the three days of Queensland Beef Expo, culminating in the Poker Ranch Sorting Spectacular on the Friday evening. Patrons to the Expo will be able to view the first three heats free with the purchase of their entry ticket. However, tickets for the grand final on Friday evening the 1st of September will need to be purchased online before the event feature.
The very best of New South Wales will take on Queensland’s finest, with winners gaining the right to ride against the best from the USA on the night. This will be the very first International Poker Ranch Sorting competition held in Australia!
