    YAY for OTTB's! I helped pick out 3 that ended up in the top standings!

    KC got Roadrunner from Fairmount in November of 2002 as a late 3 year old.

    Lani got Lord Alfred (2nd in Adult Am Prelim, won the Area VIII Prelim Champs) from Fairmount in the summer of 2001.

    Jenna's horse, Tumble Dry, came from Thistledown in November of 92.

    Jess,

    Ties were broken according to published guidelines (lest anyone think I have my favorites http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif ).

    1. Number of 1st places in Area
    2. Number of top 3 places in Area
    3. Number of top 5 places in Area
    4. Better Average score
    5. Better Average score per number of starters

    MOST ties were broken in the first couple steps, but one or 2 got down to #4 (none made it to #5).

    LAZ if Frankie doesn't work out, I want you finding my next horse!! LOL

    TLE,

    At your service. I love track shopping. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_razz.gif I've had incredible luck getting really nice horses for not much $$.

    LAZ

    Laz - I may be asking for your help if that's the case. I have been browsing the Canter of Ohio website for a new event horse. Are you located anywhere near Cincinnati?

    tle -- thank you for all of the hard work collecting, collating, and reporting the results. It's been a lot of fun watching the points accumulate during the year -- I think the online access is a major improvement.

    For next year, I've got another category of awards to suggest -- "Best" husband/wife eventing combination. I haven't the foggiest how to characterize "best," but after meeting Mr/Mrs Annika @ Team Challenge I realized how cool it would be to compete with your spouse. TeamCEO would probably be willing to sponsor it.

    Mickey,

    I'm from the Indpls area. Are you looking at Thistledown or Beulah? I've been to Beulah a couple of times without finding anything I wanted to take home, but have gotten a couple from Thistledown. That's no real reflection on Beulah, probably just the luck of the timing.

    LAZ

    LAZ... Laura got her 4yo last spring at Beulah. Cincy area has River Downs and is close to Turfway although I don't know what their season is. Beulah is just starting up. Thistledowns shuts down next month.

    secretariat... if there's a way to determine the award (even if subjective), I'm all for it! IMHO, the more awards the better -- which is why I'm STILL contacting sponsors and looking into one or 2 special awards myself. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif

    But I definitely agree... Mr/Mrs Annika are d'bomb! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif

    Laz - at this point I'm just browsing the website and I've made a few calls. Not sure what track the horses near Cincinnati are at.

    Awwww... Secretariat and TLE- you all are TOO kind! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_redface.gif

    But what about the best, most helpful and supportive DAD in the area? don't see many DADs doing stalls! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    But at any rate, you all thinking that is an award in itself...thanks! Methinks he is pretty special!

    Annikak, I think I might have to second that "Dad" award... I don't think I've ever been prouder of him than last weekend at this tiny mini-trial when they turned up with too few volunteers. I was riding, but he stepped up to handle it for them no problem. The organizer turned to me and said, "Do you know how many of us would LOVE to steal your dad? He's great!" I might have to agree. I know that, had any of the big guys seen him at Radnor, they would have tried to steal him. And he's certainly a good hand at parking trailers for people at events!
