CHRHF Update – Inductions, Nominations and Elections

As with so many other organizations over the past two years, the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame has had to adapt to our ever-changing world, especially with being able formally induct the Inductees named during the time most impacted by the Covid pandemic.

Class of 2020 and 2021 Inductions

When both the CHRHF Class of 2020 and 2021 were named it was agreed by the CHRHF Board of Directors the lifelong achievements of the people and horses included in these classes deserved the same recognition and celebration as has been provided to all those inducted before them.  It was therefore decided to not hold an in-person Induction Gala until such time as we could safely do so. 

The CHRHF is pleased to announce it is our intention to hold a live Induction Gala to recognize the Classes of 2020 and 2021 on Wednesday, August 3, 2022.  Additional details regarding the event will be made available in the coming weeks and months.

Class of 2022 Nominations and Elections

With a total of 16 inductees from 2020 and 2021 still to receive their full induction, it has been agreed to delay and modify the timing and number of inductees to be added to the CHRHF as part of the Class of 2022. 

The deadline for CHRHF 2022 nominations is August 26, 2022, after this year’s induction gala recognizing the classes of 2020 and 2021. The CHRHF Class of 2022, consisting of a total of eight inductees (four from Standardbred categories and four from Thoroughbred categories) will be announced October 19, 2022.   Nomination forms are available on the CHRHF website and can either be completed online or downloaded and submitted by mail or email.

Class of 2023 Nominations, Class of 2022 and 2023 Inductions.

In 2023 the CHRHF plans to return to naming inductees in April.  Like the Class of 2022, the Class of 2023 will consist of eight inductees (four from Standardbred categories and four from Thoroughbred categories.)

The Class of 2022 along with the Class of 2023 inductees will be formally inducted in August 2023. 

Additional information regarding the above will be updated as available.
