There are quite a few in the Harness Racing National HOF.

Frances Dodge-Van Lennep, Neva Burright, Gladys Harriman come to mind quickly.

Julie Krone was inducted in 2000 but Janet is the first female trainer to enter the Hall of Fame, a well deserved honor indeed.

Thanks for posting that link! Several of the induction montage videos aired for the inductees are also there as well. Still unavailable are the actual induction speeches themselves ...

It was extremely foolish in my view for the Racing HOF to not provide more access to the virtual public for seeing the event (streaming video and/or partnering with TVG/HRTV) or to at least promote videos like this post-event on youtube.

Thankfully someone was willing to share it.

The Museum was hoping to stream the event but technical concerns on the eve of the inductions prevented it. With luck, it will be available next year.
