There have been several inquiries as to the correct titles for horses winning at the Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse Show. The titles were established in 2004 and remain the same today. The titles are as follows:
Qualifying class winners, including Futurity classes, are World Champions, Championship class winners are World Champion of Champions, the winners of the seven open Championships (five-gaited, three-gaited, fine harness, road horse, hackney pony, roadster pony, and harness pony) are the only winners that are titled World Grand Champions.
The second place horse in each of these classes will be known as the Reserve World Champions, Reserve World Champion of Champions, and Reserve World Grand Champions.
The winners of the Kentucky County Fair classes would be the Kentucky State Fair County Fair Grand Champions. The winner of the USTA class is the USTA Roadster Horse Finals Champion.
