The American Saddlebred Museum has a special week planned for those in town for the Lexington Junior League Horse. The week kicks off with a Meet & Greet in the Red Mile Clubhouse (use ringside entrance) on Tuesday, July 5 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The event is open to all and offers a chance for attendees to meet Museum trustees while viewing a selection of art that will be offered at auction later in the week. Pick up an auction catalog and enjoy hors d’oeuvres courtesy of Elizabeth Ghareeb and Michael Petty, as well as complimentary Arabella and Leatherwood wines hosted by Nic De Wet’s Toast of Kentucky. A cash bar will also be available. Guests can purchase VIP booths/tables for the Museum’s 2016 Kentucky State Fair party, Back To The Eighties: Puttin’ On The Hits Lip Sync Battle, sure to be a sell-out event. Stop by the Red Mile Clubhouse on Tuesday night and “meet” your Museum!
On Wednesday, July 6, drive out to the Showplace for Saddlebreds at the Kentucky Horse Park and partake in a Sip & Shop in the Saddlebred Museum’s Gift Shop from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Guests will enjoy light refreshments, a chance to peruse the newest merchandise, and 10% off purchases!
