Standardbred horses are elected into harness racing’s Living Horse Hall of Fame by current members of the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame. Six candidates will be presented to the museum membership for consideration. Ballots will be mailed to members after U.S. Thanksgiving and must be returned by January 2, 2020. The three top vote getters will be inducted into the Living Horse Hall of Fame on Hall of Fame Day – July 5, 2020 – in Goshen, New York.

If you wish to participate in the Living Horse Hall of Fame election process and are not currently a museum member, please contact the museum to become a member.

In July 2018, the Board of Trustees of the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame approved a revised set of Living Horse Hall of Fame eligibility criteria. Those criteria are as follows:

A racehorse must be retired from racing for two years and have had a drug-free career. In addition, racehorses must have been the winner of $2.5 million lifetime with two Dan Patch Awards, or been the winner of $3 million lifetime, or been named Dan Patch (U.S.) Harness Horse of the Year. Horses over the age of 12 that are still racing and meet the criteria are also eligible.

A racemare must be retired from racing for two years and have had a drug-free career. In addition, racemares must have been the winner of $1.5 million lifetime with two Dan Patch Awards, or been the winner of $2.5 million lifetime, or been named Dan Patch (U.S.) Harness Horse of the Year. Mares over the age of 12 that are still racing and meet the criteria are also eligible.

Stallions must rank among the 10 all-time leading money-winning sires at their gait, or have sired at least one-hundred $200,000 winners, or been a leading money-winning sire at his gait in three or more seasons.

Annually on March 1, a list of the broodmares that have produced two Dan Patch winners, or two millionaires, or one Dan Patch winner and one millionaire will be assembled for the Living Horse Hall of Fame Committee to review. Committee members can also nominate a broodmare that does not meet the criteria. Each of the committee members votes for his or her top 5 broodmares, voting results are tabulated and the top two vote getters are elected to the Living Horse Hall of Fame.
