The Fall Classic has added a lead line class for riders 6 years and under. This class will be Class 67A and will be held as the first class on Friday evening with that session starting at

The Kentucky Fall Classic will feature the very popular Horse Person Select Fall Sale on Thursday, October 6 in the Club Lounge overlooking the arena. This event has become one of the most anticipated evenings of the show. The sale is an annual benefit for UPHA Chapter 9, and proceeds from this year’s sale will go to defray expenses for trainer Mark Webster who recently suffered a serious riding accident. The show will also conduct a silent auction during the show with many items for the discriminating buyer. For information please contact chairperson, Paula Harris at 615-491-6536.
