OwnerView Accepting Nominations for "New Owner of the Year" Award

NEWS RELEASE


OwnerView today announced that it is accepting nominations for the 2023 New Owner of the Year Award, sponsored by 1/ST RACING, which honors a new Thoroughbred owner who has been successful in the sport and has had a positive impact on the industry.


Nominees for the New Owner of the Year Award must have made their first start as a Thoroughbred owner in the past four years (since 2020), had an ownership stake in a horse at the time it won a stakes race in the past 12 months, and had a verifiable owner license in 2023. Thoroughbred performance as well as a nominee’s promotion of the sport will be considered.
