HORSE SHOW TO FEATURE OFF THE TRACK THOROUGHBREDS

The Fall Thoroughbred Celebration Horse Show will be held November 21-22, 2009 in the East Complex at the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington, VA, and will once again offer hunter and jumper classes for off-the-track thoroughbreds (OTTBs).

Classes are designed for those OTTBs who are starting their show carreers as well as those thoroughbreds who have achieved a higher level of competition. The show offers a $1,000 Hunter Stake and a $1,000 Jumper Stake . All classes will offer prizes in addition to ribbons, and there will be special prizes awarded throughout the show to various exhibitors and horses.

The prize list is available on the Virginia Horse Center website. http://www.horsecenter.org/
The June Thoroughbred Celebration Horse Show was very successful thanks to the Virginia HBPA and the many class sponsors who took the time to dedicate classes in memory of loved ones and favorite horses, past and present. All sponsored classes and divisions are duly noted during the show, and in press releases after the show. Several sponsors attended the show as spectators, and were given the opportunity to present ribbons and prizes to the winning exhibitors.

Information regarding division and class sponsorship is available by contacting Chris Kelly at the Virginia Horse Center ckelly@horsecenter.org or Anne Russek at annrussva@hotmail.com or (540) 817-9263.
