Release Date: 2015-07-17

Lexington, KY – July 17, 2015 – Only two short months ago, the Bluegrass Jockey Club underwent significant changes for the Kentucky Horse Shows, LLC’s Spring and Summer Series. The Club was relocated adjacent to the in-gate of the Rolex Stadium offering trainers and riders convenient access. Catering menus were upgraded and HD TV monitors installed broadcasting the activities in Rolex Stadium. The Bluegrass Jockey Club offers more than delicious catered meals—table holders will have access to VIP parking for golf carts and cars, seating for six, as well as complimentary wireless Internet. Tables are still available for the Kentucky Summer Series. Do not miss the opportunity to entertain in comfort with the elite seating bordering the Rolex Stadium.

Brooke USA will continue their sponsorship of the unique VIP “Oasis” lounge, located inside the Jockey Club. This area allows guests to rest comfortably in a tranquil atmosphere, while offering front row seats to all the action from its ringside location, TV monitor and bar. This area is sponsored by the Brooke USA, a nonprofit organization that supports the overseas work of the Brooke, the world’s largest international equine welfare organization. The core ambition of the organization is to improve the welfare of working horses, donkeys and mules in the world’s poorest communities who often live under gruesome circumstances.

During the Kentucky Summer Horse Show, July 22-26, 2015 weekly packages for a table for six will be available each day, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, with a luncheon served for $1,000 per table. Dinner will be served on Thursday evening during the $25,000 Hagyard Lexington Classic. Tables for Saturday’s $50,000 Rood & Riddle Grand Prix are on sale separately and may be purchased by contacting Erin Morgan at 859.280.3316 or e-mail her at
