It has been announced that a pair of broodmares will be inducted into harness racing’s Living Horse Hall of Fame on July 7.

Broodmares Grand Lady and Michelles Jackpot are the newest members of harness racing’s Living Horse Hall of Fame. They join Bettors Delight, Life Sign and Lady Ashlee Ann as 2013 inductees.

A broodmare is automatically elected to the Living Horse Hall of Fame when she produces a $1 million winner and two other winners of $500,000 or produces a Harness Horse of the Year (U.S. and/or Canada) and another $500,000 winner.

Bettors Delight, Grand Lady, Lady Ashlee Ann, Life Sign and Michelles Jackpot will be inducted on Hall of Fame Day, Sunday, July 7. The ceremonies honouring these extraordinary standardbreds will take place during the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame’s annual dinner. For information on Hall of Fame Weekend and other festivities surrounding this important occasion, visit harnessmuseum.com or call or write the museum at 240 Main Street, Goshen, NY 10924.
