Season Kick Off in Kentucky



 

 

by Renee Isaacs

RICHMOND, Ky. – The place to be on Saturday, March 10, was in Richmond, Ky. The KWHA Ladies Auxiliary Colt Preview kicked off the upcoming show season with about 50 colts. The event was held in a new location this year at the Madison County fairgrounds.
“We had the most spectators and a larger number of colts than we have had in several years,” said Kris Hock­ensmith and Nancy Minton. 
The potluck lunch provided by the ladies began at noon and the colts began parading through the ring around 1 p.m. Many spectators, as well as owners and trainers, were present and excited for such a successful turnout. A silent auction with stud fees was held and a live auction with many items brought in over $2,300. Woodrow Wilson of Winchester, Ky., volunteered as the auctioneer.
            The crowd cheered on their favorite colt as the trainers showed them off. The ladies auxiliary is appreciative of everyone who supported this event and they hope to continue to be successful each year. Kris Hockensmith would like to personally thank everyone for their support and ask that you gather your friends and join them back next year to kick off the 2008 season.
