Release Date: 2012-10-12

Lexington, Kentucky – October 12, 2012 – The 2012 Alltech National Horse Show which returns to the Kentucky Horse Park on October 30 through November 4, 2012, announced today that the Hilton Lexington Downtown Hotel will again partner with the show as the Official Horse Show Headquarters.

In addition to top rated hunters and the ASPCA Maclay National Championship, the Alltech National Horse Show features world-class international, open, junior and amateur-owner jumpers competing for the biggest prize money on the United States indoor tour. This year’s event also marks the debut of the exciting, high stepping American Saddlebreds.

The Hilton Lexington Downtown, a short drive from the Kentucky Horse Park, is just steps away from Rupp Arena, the University of Kentucky, Bluegrass Airport, Keeneland Race Track, shopping and dining. The hotel is attached by sky walk to Lexington's best shopping, dining and attractions.

Guestrooms offer luxurious bedding, upscale amenities and a spacious comfortable design. The hotel offers 366 rooms and 17 floors including an executive level with a lounge and amazing views of the city.

“We are excited to partner again with the Hilton Lexington Downtown,” said Mason Phelps, Jr., President of the National Horse Show Association. “They offer a world-class hotel, with great guest amenities and it’s a quick commute from the hotel to the Kentucky Horse Park. In addition, our horse show exhibitors that stay at the Hilton get to experience all of the excitement of downtown Lexington.”

While staying at the hotel, be sure to visit Bigg Blue Martini, one of Lexington's hottest nightspots, or try a Kentucky Hot Brown at the "Triangle Grille," which features fine American cuisine and some local favorites, overlooking the fountains at Triangle Park. After a day at the Alltech National Horse Show, relax with a carriage ride through historic Gratz Park just outside the hotel's front door.

This year, the Hilton Lexington Downtown will host the Black Tie Gala, presented by the Kentucky Equine Humane Center, on October 30th at 7:00 p.m.

Founded in 1883 at the original Madison Square Garden, the National Horse Show is America’s oldest indoor horse show, firmly established as a major fixture on the national and international sports and social event calendars. The National Horse Show Association’s primary activity is the annual production of the National Horse Show and all ancillary events.
