Now Accepting Nominations for the CHRHF Class of 2021!
The Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame (CHRHF) invites the public to participate in the nomination of people and horses who have made a significant contribution to Canadian Standardbred or Thoroughbred horse racing, for induction to the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame in 2021.
Any Canadian person or Canadian horse who has achieved outstanding success either in Canada or internationally, or any person or horse who has made a defining contribution to Canadian horse racing will be considered for election to the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame. Eligibility Criteria and categories for nomination can be reviewed at https://www.canadianhorseracinghalloffame.com/inductees/eligibility/
To submit a nomination please complete the electronic form below, or download, complete and submit the fillable PDF version of the form available HERE
All nominations received before the nomination deadline of Wednesday, March 3, 2021, at 5:00 pm est., that meet the eligibility criteria will be considered by the Nomination Committee of the appropriate breed.
It should be noted the Board of Directors of the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame has reduced the number of Inductees to be recognized in 2021 to three per breed, instead of the usual five for Standardbreds and five for Thoroughbreds. This decision was reached as a result of COVID-19 restrictions in 2020 and the CHRHF’s desire to fully recognize the Class of 2020 as similarly as possible to those inducted in previous years. It is hoped that both the ten individuals previously announced as the Class of 2020, as well as the six individuals to be inducted as part of the Class of 2021 will be fully recognized during 2021, with further announcements to be made in the coming months.
All eligible submissions received will be carefully considered by the Nominating Committee of the corresponding breed. Each breed’s Nominating Committee will determine the three categories to be recognized in 2021 before determining, by vote, the top three nominees in each of the three selected categories, to create the ballot of finalists forwarded to the Election Committee for final voting by secret ballot.
The list of finalists for the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame Class of 2020 to be voted on by the Election Committee for each breed will be announced Monday, March 29, 2021.
CHRHF Class of 2021 Inductees will be announced Tuesday, April 13, 2021.
