Public Nominations for the CHRHF Class of 2023 have closed. 


The Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame (CHRHF) thanks everyone who submitted nominations of people and horses who have made a significant contribution to Canadian Standardbred or Thoroughbred horse racing, for induction consideration.

All nominations received in advance of the submission deadline of March 10, 2023, at 5:00 pm EST., that meet the eligibility criteria for induction, will be considered by the Nomination Committee of the appropriate breed.  To create the ballot of finalists that will be forwarded to the Election Committee, each breed’s Nominating Committee will vote on the four categories to be recognized before determining the top three nominees in each of the four selected categories.  The Election Committee will vote by secret ballot to determine the Inductees to be recognized as the Class of 2023.

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 each 2022 and 2023 to four per breed, instead of the usual five for Standardbreds and five for Thoroughbreds. The Class of 2022, along with the Class of 2023 inductees will be formally inducted in August 2023.

Nominations submitted between 2020 and 2022 need not be re-submitted, unless there are relevant biographical updates/changes for consideration by the Nomination Committee.

Should you have any questions about the nomination and election process, please review the information available at  Eligibility | Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame.  

The four categories selected for each breed to be recognized in 2023, along with the three finalists in each category will be announced April 11, 2023.

The CHRHF Class of 2023 consisting of four Standardbred and four Thoroughbred Inductees, will be announced April 26, 2023.
