The P.E.I. Standardbred Horse Owners Association (PEISHOA) has announced the schedule for its Awards Weekend, April 8 and 9, featuring Hall of Famer and O’Brien Award winner Bob McIntosh.

The best of Prince Edward Island racing, both human and equine, will be honoured at the PEISHOA Awards Banquet on Saturday, April 8, which will be held at Murphys Community Centre in Charlottetown. A reception will be held starting at 6:30 p.m. with dinner and awards following at 7 p.m.

“We are very honoured that Mr. McIntosh has agreed to be our guest speaker, which is generating a great response from our racing community,” said PEISHOA Chair Dr. Colleen Dickie. “There are only a limited number of tickets remaining, and our deadline for sales is this coming Monday.”

Tickets are available from PEISHOA Directors or at the Charlottetown Vet Clinic.

On Sunday, April 9, the PEISHOA will be hosting a Breeders Information Seminar at Red Shores with McIntosh. He will discuss his philosophy of raising yearlings and developing young horses. There will also be a question and answer session.

Sunday's seminar starts at 1:30 p.m. in the Red Shores at Charlottetown Driving Park Grandstand. Reservations have also been made for a limited number of attendees for the Sunday Brunch Buffet at the Top of the Park for 12 noon.

Pre-registration is required for the brunch, and is encouraged for the seminar to facilitate arrangements. Please contact PEI Standardbred Horse Owners Association via Facebook, or Dr. Colleen Dickie at 902-940-5247 or [email protected].

The PEISHOA would like to thank the PEI Department of Agriculture and Fisheries for their support of this seminar through the Growing Forward 2 Federal/Provincial funding agreement.
