Results of an independent study conducted for the Kentucky Tourism Arts and Heritage Cabinet were released today, to much fanfare, at the Kentucky Horse Park. You can read the report, by Certec, Inc, out of Versailles, Ky, here [PDF] . Dr Pearse Lyons represented title sponsor Alltech with a couple of exciting announcements, one in the video below, and another that he’ll be in the lead car at the Tour de France next week to officially promote Alltech as the title sponsor of the Normandy 2014 WEG ( fun fact: Deauville is twinned with Lexington). Also speaking, John Nicholson for the Horse Park and Governor Beshear and his wife Jane, who I later bumped into in the tack shop, trying to decide on a bridle…all in a day’s work!
Of course, everyone’s excited about the National Horse Show coming to the Alltech Indoor Arena this autumn, as well as countless other important events to the Rolex Stadium already this year. These are exactly the kind of opportunities that the facilities, that were built to entice the WEG to Kentucky, will afford the Commonwealth for many years to come, as well as, of course, the wonderful memories!
