Kentucky Horse Park Gets Much Needed Funds

The general assembly ended without providing money this year for those upgrades, but the governor has gone ahead and provided some money anyway.

The governor has authorized $900,000 to build a stadium.

Tens of millions of dollars are needed to get the Kentucky Horse Park where it needs to be for the 2010 equestrian games.

Some would think the $900,000 approved by the governor is only a drop in the bucket.

But officials at the park, and for the games, say they don't feel short-changed. This money will give them momentum to get them off and running.

Along with unique seating the horse park will also have concessions and lots of other features with a price tag of about 24 million dollars.
