PARIS, Ky. - The Bourbon County Fair and Horse Show was held on June 19, 2009. The show was very successful with a growing number of entries ending at nearly 100. Marty Irby of Shelbyville, Tenn., judged the pleasure and performance classes.

Sweet Revenge Stables led the blue ribbon wins with 10 blues for the night under the direction of Mike Oney. Sweet Revenge Stables is owned by Linda Patton of Mt. Sterling, Ky. Hankins Stables were second on the tally, claiming six blues. Jennifer and Jamie Hankins are the owners of Hankins Stables in Paris, Ky.

Linton Griffith, a former resident of Paris, Ky., made the trip from Alvaton, Ky., to make a great performance aboard Copy’s Colors under the direction of Todd Smith of Bowling Green, Ky. The Griffith family was the owners of Golden Chance Farm while living in the area.

At least three world champions made performances during the show, including Ultra Prime Mover with Sabrina Young aboard in the show pleasure division, Hallelujah In The Sky with Logan Hankins up in the juvenile country pleasure class and Special Alert with Delaney Reynolds who competed in the juvenile 11 and under.

Show management was very pleased with the turnout of the show and would like to invite everyone back next year.
