Lexington, Kentucky ­– Kentucky Horse Park Commission Chair Tandy Patrick and 2010 World Equestrian Games Chairman Jim Host will attend the ASHA Annual Luncheon at the American Saddlebred Horse Association’s Saddlebred Summit Saturday, February 18 at 12:00 p.m.


Patrick and Host have both been playing key roles in the progress of the 2010 World Equestrian Games.  Patrick, who is also a member of ASHA, traveled to Bahrain as a member of the Kentucky delegation to make the horse park’s final presentation to host the games.  Host, who has been instrumental in the founding and development of the Kentucky Horse Park, will lead in the marketing, selling of sponsorships and coordinating the games. 


Host and Patrick will speak about the World Equestrian Games, and the effect they will have on the region and on the Saddlebred. 


Patrick was appointed by Gov. Ernie Fletcher to chair the Kentucky Horse Park Commission.  She has been involved in the Saddlebred industry all her life as an owner, exhibitor and breeder.  She graduated from the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law.  She is a partner with the regional law firm of Greenebaum, Doll & McDonald PLLC, where she serves as chair of the firm’s real estate development and construction team and co-chair of the firm’s equine law team. 


Host founded Host Communications in 1972 and recently served as Gov. Ernie Fletcher’s Commerce Cabinet Secretary.  He is currently the chair of the Louisville Arena Authority.
