AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Brice Carr
Tickets are now being sold for the annual Saddlebred Raffle, with winners to be drawn during the American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) Youth Auction, in Crowne Room A of the Crowne Plaza Louisville, during the week of the Kentucky State Fair World's Championship Horse Show (WCHS).
The raffle is one of ASHA's most important fund-raisers. Only 400 tickets are sold worldwide, at $100 each, for gross proceeds of $40,000. Of that, $20,000 goes into the Saddlebred Futures Fund, and $20,000 of it is returned to winners in cash prizes. The Grand Prize is $5,000, with two prizes of $2,500 each, one each of $2,000 and $1,500, three of $1,000 each, and seven of $500.
The lucky 15 winning names will be drawn on Thursday afternoon, August 27, at 2:30 p.m., in Crowne Room A of the Crowne Plaza. Ticket holders need not be present to win. Then, the lucky winners or their representatives will draw for their actual prizes on Thursday evening, August 27, during WCHS in Freedom Hall.
