Officials with the Alberta Standardbred Horse Association have informed Trot Insider of the passing of horseman Norm Kennedy.

Kennedy, 77, was a longtime horsemen involved in many aspects of Standardbred racing all across the country. He spent many years advocating for horsemen and the horses in Alberta.

Kennedy served on many committees and boards, including Horse Racing Alberta and the Alberta Standardbred Horse Association. He continued to enjoy harness racing until very recently – he was at the track watching his horses race almost every race day. On days in which he could not make it to the track due to his many other commitments, Kennedy was sure to be watching online.

Not only was Kennedy an owner, but he was a huge supporter of charity programs and any initiative that might help get people involved in racing – especially supportive of giving opportunities to young people in the industry.

Kennedy will be greatly missed.

A gathering will be held at the Willow Park Golf & Country Club (639 Willow Park Drive SE, Calgary AB) on Monday, October 23 at 5:00 pm.

If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Chinook Hospice, 1261 Glenmore Trail S.W. Calgary AB, T2V 4Y8, Telephone: (403) 258-0400. In living memory of Norman Kennedy, a tree will be planted at the Fish Creek Provincial Park by McInnis and Holloway Funeral Home.

Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the family and friends of Norm Kennedy.
