Beshear returns his mom’s friend to Kentucky Horse Park panel as park loses big bucks

Gov. Andy Beshear has reappointed Alston Kerr, a friend of his mother’s, to the Kentucky Horse Park Commission and designated Kerr to be chairwoman of the panel that governs the 1,200-acre tourist attraction in Fayette County. Kerr, of Lexington, was removed as chair of the commission in March 2016 by then-Gov. Matt Bevin in the midst of a major shake-up and audit of the park instigated by Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer, R-Georgetown.
