Standardbred Canada is now accepting submissions for the 2022 Cam Fella Award.
The Cam Fella Award was introduced at the 1997 O’Brien Awards to honour the extreme meritorious service that Cam Fella provided to the nation’s harness racing industry, and, fittingly, he was the first recipient.
The award is given out when warranted – not necessarily annually – to recognize extreme recent meritorious service, effort and dedication to Canadian harness racing by an individual or group who, through their efforts, displays some of the same qualities that made Cam Fella one of racing’s greatest names.
The Cam Fella Award is not a lifetime achievement honour, as the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame serves that distinct function.
The most recent winner was Anthony MacDonald of Guelph, Ont., who was honoured as the 2019 recipient of the Cam Fella Award. MacDonald was recognized for the tireless and innovative work he has done in promoting harness racing and attracting new horse owners with the launch and growth of TheStable.ca.
To submit a nomination, please complete this application form. Nominations are kept confidential in order to avoid disappointment should the nomination not be successful. Submissions must be received by 5 p.m. (EST) on Nov. 30.
