Bluegrass Select Series Championships Featured at the Kentucky Fall Classic

The Bluegrass Select Series Championships will be held at the Kentucky Fall Classic, September 30–October 3 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. For this initial year exhibitors had to have shown in one qualifying class in the division in which they want to show in the Championship round at the Fall Classic.

All participants at the Fall Classic will receive a hat and the Select Series Grand Champions will receive a beautiful halter from Freedmans Harness. Select Series Championships will be held for Amateur/Junior Exhibitor Three-Gaited, Amateur/Junior Exhibitor Five-Gaited, Amateur/Junior Exhibitor Show Pleasure, Amateur/Junior Exhibitor Country Pleasure, and Amateur/Junior Exhibitor Five-Gaited Pleasure.

“This is a program we really believe in and has already proven successful in a few different areas of the country, starting with Matt Shiflet’s Carolina Summer Circuit,” said ASHA President Bob Funkhouser. “The Bluegrass Select Series took a little time to catch hold in this initial year but trainers and owners began to see what it is all about and the numbers got better as the season went on. We want to thank the shows that hosted these classes and the exhibitors that participated.

“Select Series qualifying classes were held at Kentucky Spring Premier, Rock Creek, Mercer County Fair, Paris and Woodford County. We’re looking forward to the Championships at the Fall Classic and then increasing qualifying shows and even greater participation in 2016.”
