The Ohio Harness Horsemen’s Association has awarded Steve McCoy the Association’s Maynard and Stella Hagemeyer Significant Contribution Award for 2020.

McCoy, who lives in Upper Arlington, Ohio with his Wife Brenda, has been involved in harness racing since 1982. He joined the OHHA Board of Directors in 1994 and served as the Association’s president for seven years, from 2009-2015. During his tenure as President, McCoy gave selflessly of his legal talent and acumen. Among his accomplishments, too numerous to detail, McCoy was instrumental in developing and passage of the legislation resulting in VLT’s at Ohio’s pari-mutuel racetracks. McCoy also led the negotiations and brought to final agreement, the four pari-mutuel harness racetracks’ VLT Horsemen’s Agreements from 2012-2015.

As a past president, McCoy serves on the Advisory Committee for the OHHA and is the Vice Chairman for the OHHA Breeders section. McCoy is also a member of the United States Trotting Association Board of Directors serving for District 1, a position he has held since 2015.

McCoy currently works as the General Counsel for the Showe Companies of Columbus, Ohio.

The Maynard and Stella Hagemeyer Significant Contribution Award is awarded to an individual that has made a significant life-long contribution to Ohio harness racing. The individual must possess a passion and advocacy for Ohio harness racing. The award is based on the importance of educating and involving local and state legislators to the importance of the harness racing industry.

McCoy will be honored during the Ohio Harness Horsemen’s Association’s virtual award show on January 16, 2021. The awards show is scheduled to air on the OHHA YouTube channel at 7:00 p.m. (EST).
