Equestrian Sport Productions' two Christmas shows, the Christmas Festival, held December 12-14 and the Christmas A, held December 19-21, both A-rated, three-star jumper events, will be held at Palm Beach International Equestrian Center's South Grounds while the multimillion dollar improvements to the North Grounds are completed in time for the 2009 FTI Winter Equestrian Festival that starts on January 7.
A $25,000 Grand Prix is scheduled during the Christmas Festival for 1 p.m. this Sunday, December 14.
Major improvements to warm-up rings and other parts of the South Grounds were made in recent months as part of an overall program by ESP to upgrade the three facilities that make up PBIEC.
PBIEC's third facility, The Stadium, underwent a major overhaul in preparation for the Palm Beach Steeplechase last month. It will be the venue of the $50,000 CN Jumper Derby on grass on Sunday, February 15.
