The Annual Awards Banquet of the Prince Edward Island Standardbred Horse Owners Association was held in Charlottetown last evening(Saturday, April 14).

The crowd of over 300 was thoroughly entertained, as guest speakers Erv and Hannah Miller touched on topics ranging from their early days in racing, sibling rivalries, memorable horses and races, and what they would still like to achieve in the industry.

After an incredible record setting year, it was no surprise that the powerful Marc Campbell Stable took home the lion’s share of the awards. Horses from his stable captured many divisional honours, and stable star Filly Forty Seven won the coveted Horse of the Year Award. Campbell, who himself took home all of the driver and trainer awards, was presented with the ‘Kentucky of Canada’ award in recognition of his truly exceptional season.

Mickey Gallant and Deanna Clow were extremely popular winners of the Horseperson and Horsewoman of the Year awards. Peter Buchanan was awarded the Active Horseman of the Year award, which recognized his many years of involvement and contribution as board member and president of the PEISHOA. Reg MacPherson of Stratford, PE was honoured with the Standardbred Canada Owner of the year award. The inaugural Arnold Weeks Memorial award, which was established to honour those who truly display great kindness and generosity to fellow horsemen, was awarded to Ronnie and Dianne Gass.
