  • The theme for the 2014 Montgomery banquet is "A Day AtThe Races" as we look forward to the 2015 ATCA Floater in Louisville Kentucky. Each table will feature a special centerpiece (which members will have an opportunity to bid on, buy and have customized prior to the banquet--details to follow in the next newsletter) and each will salute one of the Triple Crown winners or a Horse of The Year winner. Special take home favors and Derby trivia should get everyone excited about getting "on the road to Louisville" in March 2015.
