    I sure hope it stays a show facility. It is very nice there, and close for so many. Please don't tell me they are going to develop it

    It was sold to people with car dealership connections. Plan to keep it a show facility and do lots of upgrades to the property.

    Do we know if the sale has closed yet? I know that Wayne mentioned that the buyers have car dealerships. Are the buyers local and involved in horses? Solely curious; as long as it remains the quality show facility it always has been, I'll be content.

    I was told the deal went thru before the new year & it was to a local horse owner who plan to keep it a show facility.

    The new owners are quite excited & have plans for improvements, etc... I wish them well & look forward to future shows there!
