Inaugural Bluegrass Morgan Classic To Be Held



2010 is going to be a banner year for equestrian sports in Lexington, Kentucky. The inaugural Bluegrass Morgan Classic has been added to the schedule for July 8 – 11. The show will take place in the covered arena facility at the Kentucky Horse Park, which will also be the site of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games being held September 25 – October 10. The Bluegrass Morgan Classic has been incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in the state of Kentucky.

Byron Singer, spokesperson and manager of the Bluegrass Morgan Classic, is delighted with the initial response to the show. "We have had quite a bit of interest in the show since we began putting things together. With the increased presence of the Morgan breed at the Kentucky Horse Park with the building of the Morgan Pavilion, it seemed appropriate to put the icing on the cake and have an all-Morgan horse show here. We feel the timing is great with the show following July 4th weekend and at a prime time for the Morgan breed to enjoy great visibility and exposure at the Kentucky Horse Park. We hope to have strong support from owners and trainers with the show being held two weeks prior to New England along with attracting and exposing many new people to the Morgan horse."

The list of show officials for the 2010 Bluegrass Morgan Classic will include; judges Larry Bolen and Cindy Mugnier, secretary Barb Dunham and photographer Terry Young. The principal organizing committee of the Bluegrass Morgan Classic are Bob Morgan, Jan Lazar, Linda Hall and Byron Singer. There will be a Bluegrass Morgan Classic meeting at the Kentucky Horse Park on Saturday, February 20 during the AMHA Convention for those interested in attending.
