On Saturday (Nov. 24) Standardbred horseman John Schuberg, 80, passed away after a long battle with dementia.

Schuberg, a resident of Perrysburg, Ohio, earned $1.9 million as a trainer and $406,564 as a driver.

Representative of District 2; elected to the USTA Board in 1986, and serving for 25 years, Schuberg has been active in harness racing as an owner, driver and trainer since 1955. Born and raised in Big Rapids, Michigan, he is a graduate of Ferris State College and Central Michigan University and taught high school for 15 years.

Hailing from Lasalle, Michigan, Schuberg, before he stepped down as a director, was very instrumental in the hiring of the past two CEOs of the USTA while serving on the executive committee. An extremely talented horseman who raced at both the fairs and tracks throughout Ohio, Michigan and Indiana, he was a force at the fairs.

Schuberg was an expert at buying young stock and producing ‘racehorses.’ One of his most highly regarded accomplishments, besides his actual children, was his longtime relationship with fellow horseman, Greg Bateson. Schuberg and Bateson were inseparable and often successful for decades.

More details will be posted when available.
