"To provide superb Barrel Racing events to competitors of all ages, honoring God, Country and family, representative of the honesty, integrity and simplicity. We want all competitors feeling welcomed and leaving our races thinking “Wow!"
Go Fast Races emerged from a family collaboration. The Angelle family history with horses & Barrel Racing is born out of passion and sacrifice. It all started when Mitzi and Gil let Sarai start riding at age 7 with little brother Gilly close behind.
After purchasing their first two horses that quickly grew to five, the Angelle family faced hardship. At the time, maintaining five horses was not a challenge until Mitzi’s company sold and she was jobless. The question became to either sell the house or the horses. The passion and love they have for the equestrian industry was more than for a conventional lifestyle. Many family members and peers believe it was impractical (when is barrel racing ever practical?) but they moved forward.
The Angelle family is deeply invested in the industry. Mitzi worked with racing organizations, Gil took a side job at a Feed Store, Sarai’s success elevated their opportunities and Gilly is the visionary. Gilly was once'd asked what barrel racers wanted most? “They just wanna go fast”. The family effort to maintain the passion culminated into Go Fast Races.
Mitzi is all about running a, consistent, stress free race and making competitors happy! Mitzi loves people and their horses and she will take good care of you from the entry process through the entire race.
Mitzi also has great relationships with sponsors and loves working with different businesses and organizations to make the relationship a win-win deal!
Involving the local community is important to her as well as giving back to the community!
Gilbert (Gil) loves barrel racing and learning about everyone’s horse!
Gilbert will be making sure the arena is set and ready and that the dirt is good and fast! He will be working closely with the Williamson County Expo Center staff to make sure things run smoothly.
Gilbert is important to competitors because he will be our official time keeper for the 2017 Season and will be printing those winning checks at the end of each race!
