Eichler And Mills Win Dual Blues at Trainers’ Show

Wednesday Night

SHELBYVILLE, TN.  Tonight the National Trainers’ Horse Show starts celebrating its 40th anniversary. The show returned to the judging format where prior to each class, three different licensed judges were pulled from a hat.

Thursday night’s class sheet is scheduled for the, Amateur Specialty Stallions, Amateur Two-Year-Old Stallions and Amateur Three-Year-Old Stallions plus much more. Stay tuned for a complete list of show results and judges card only on The REPORT.
