The Roger L’Heureux Memorial Equine Award has been established in loving memory of Standardbred horseman Roger L’Heureux by David L’Heureux and Crystal Fountains Inc.

Roger was a Standardbred driver, trainer and groom that raced primarily at Flamboro Downs. Roger was the son of Ephraim L'Heureux, a Standardbred driver, who won the first Maple Leaf Trot in 1950.

The successful recipient of the Roger L’Heureux Memorial Equine Award will receive two online courses through Equine Guelph valued at $549 each (certificates are available in Equine Science, Equine Welfare and Equine Business – six courses complete the certificate).

Applicants for the award can be individuals employed in the Standardbred sector as either a groom or trainer in Ontario or Canada or a University of Guelph student. Preference will be given to industry professionals.

Selection will be based on a demonstrated love of horses, commitment to horse welfare and the Standardbred racing sector, and a desire to learn more about horses and shows.

Apply by email to eginfo@uoguelph.ca in the form of a 250-word letter explaining why you are deserving of the award, and provide reference to your work and/or passion for the Standardbred racing sector.

Deadline for entries is November 27.

The Equine Guelph Selection Committee will announce a winner December 6.
