The Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse Show has announced that it was given a donation by William Blacklaw specifically for use in the World’s Grand Championship Five Gaited class. The interest from this donation, which is estimated to be $50,000, will be added to the premiums in this class. The following will be the prize money for the class:
This year it is required to declare an intent to show in all seven (7) of the World’s Grand Championship on Thursday, August 22. This decision was made by the Advisory Board in order to give trainers time to prepare their entry.
In any of the seven (7) World’s Grand Championship classes, if a competitor is not a ribbon winner, the entry fee will not be charged, and if they are, the winnings can be applied to the entry fee.
