Awards Doled Out In Ottawa Area

Published: April 11, 2016 11:35 am EDT

A member majority of the Ottawa regional professional equine harness racing community, the National Capital Harness Horse Association (NCRHHA) attended the annual awards dinner and ceremony, which was held in the Banquet Room of the Rideau Carleton Raceway.

It was a spectacular evening of great food, camaraderie and tales of horsemanship and achievements. Hosted by John Macmillan (who is the executive director of the NCRHHA) and Jean Larose (general manager of Rideau Carleton Raceway), the region’s better equines and equine professionals were cheered as they were acclaimed by their peers (photos will be posted on NCRHHA’s webpage in the immediate future).

Mares of the Year, Out Of The Hat (7 yo), and Windsong Lisa (4 yo) took home the Trotter and Pacer of 2015 honours during the NCRHHA/RCR annual awards banquet, which was held Friday, April 1, in Ottawa, Ont. On the boys side of the equation, What A Rush (5 yo gelding) and Doing Some Damage (7 yo gelding) equalled the honour of the girls results.

A $500 donation was made to the Pavilion Food Bank, Ottawa and another $500 donation to TROtt Therapeutic Riding Association of Ottawa-Carleton on behalf of the National Capital Region Harness Horse Association and the Rideau Carleton Raceway.
