VIP Tables Now On Sale for Alltech National Horse Show

Lexington, Kentucky - June 28, 2011 - The Alltech National Horse Show, 128th edition, announced today that VIP tables for the debut event, to be held from November 2 - 6, 2011, at the beautiful, new Alltech Indoor Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, are now on sale.

This CSI-W 4* event will attract the nation's finest equestrians and large crowds are expected for every session, and without a doubt, the best place to watch all of the action will be from a ringside table at the exclusive Taylor Harris Club at the Alltech Arena.

The club is sponsored by Taylor Harris Insurance Services, the Official Equine Insurance Agency for the Alltech National Horse Show. Taylor Harris Insurance Services (THIS) was founded in 1987 to provide specialized insurance for all types of equine risk.

Table service includes a complimentary continental breakfast, a delicious light buffet lunch and a wonderful dinner buffet, with beverage service included. The price is all inclusive.

One of Lexington's finest caterers and party planners, Dupree Catering and Events, will be providing the service for the Taylor Harris Club.  The company was started nearly twenty-five years ago by Harriet Dupree Bradley, a Lexington native whose love for feeding people with gracious service came from her family's Southern roots. Eileen McCormick, another important part of the Dupree team, owned the successful restaurant, "The Inn Between," and has also been the executive chef at the Kentucky Governor's Mansion. Tony Yalnazov is the Dupree head chef and leads a team of fabulous cooks who produce the very best food in the Bluegrass.

Tables, seating six people, are priced at only $6,500 for the five days of competition. Those interested in purchasing one of the limited number of tables available should contact Kiki Umla, host at the Taylor Harris Club. Kiki can be reached at 904-607-5541, or via email at KIKIUMLA@aol.com. Credit cards will be accepted for table sales.

This year's show, designated CSI4*-W, will feature a complete schedule of 'AA'-rated hunter divisions, including the Pony Lane Farm High Performance Hunter section. Also on the agenda, a big money Open Jumper division highlighted by the $250,000 Alltech National Horse Show Grand Prix, an FEI World Cup qualifying event. $100,000 will be up for grabs for the Junior and Amateur Jumper divisions, including the $50,000 SJHOF Junior/Amateur Championships, sponsored by Sleepy P, Chansonette and Deerridge Farm. The final Sunday is highlighted by the signature event of the National Horse Show, the ASPCA Alfred B. Maclay Finals, presented by C.M. Hadfield's Saddlery.
