Hello MHHA Friends:
What a great annual banquet we just had! It was a wonderful gathering of horse owners, breeders, trainers, drivers and folks who just plain love the sport of harness racing. The venue was superb, and the company was exemplary. If you missed it, this newsletter will cover the 2015 Harness Horseman’s Champions and the awardees. As always, the awards are the result of nominations by your peers. There is no better way to celebrate our industry, than by recognizing the people and horses that stand out from the crowd!
We managed to garner the coveted Friday and Saturday night races this year. We will have the opportunity to provide entertainment for the general public every Friday and Saturday from March 18th through October 8th. Being able to race Fridays and Saturdays throughout the entire race season should generate a greater turn-out for the Harness Horsemen participating in pari-mutuel racing. We are looking forward to showing off all of our magnificent horses and drivers.
The Michigan Stallion Directory is now available on the website and I want to thank Claudia Cary Davidson for her work on putting this together. If you have a stallion or know of one, please let us know so we can add him to the directory.
Let’s make 2016 a year to remember
MHHA President Tom Barrett
