Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ohio Harness Horsemen’s Association (OHHA) will not hold its annual awards banquet and membership meeting but will instead present a virtual awards show on the OHHA YouTube channel on Saturday, January 16 at 7:00 p.m.

The awards show will feature Ohio’s top equine athletes of 2020. Other Ohio award winners honoured will be the Terry Holton Youth Award, Maynard and Stella Hagemeyer Significant Contribution Award, Ohio Outstanding Groom Award and the Special-Service to Harness Racing Award. In addition, the United States Harness Writers Association – Ohio Chapter annual awards will also be presented as will the Ohio State Racing Commission’s Kaltenbach Awards.

“Unfortunately, due to pandemic infection numbers and health mandates on social gatherings, the OHHA Board decided the best course of action would be to honour the 2020 award winners with a virtual banquet,” said OHHA Executive Director Renée Mancino.

The stallion auction to benefit P.A.C.E.R. (Political Action Committee for Equine Racing) will take place online and will include phone bidding on the final day. Bidding for the services of 22 stallions will go live on January 9.
