ApHC accepting nominations for Hall of Fame

museumhalloffame 003The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) is accepting nominations for one of the most prestigious honors in the Appaloosa industry, the ApHC Hall of Fame and Racing Hall of Fame!

The ApHC seeks candidates that have made a positive impact on the Appaloosa industry. Each year one or more horses and persons may be inducted into the ApHC’s Hall of Fame by nominations received from members and voted on by the ApHC’s Board of Directors. Only one horse and one person may be inducted into the ApHC’s Racing Hall of Fame by nominations received by members and voted on by the Executive Race Committee.

Each inductee will be honored at the annual award banquet held during the 63rd National Appaloosa Show & 2010 World Championship Appaloosa Youth Show in Jackson, Miss., June 21-July 3. An engraved plaque with a photograph and biography of each Hall of Fame inductee will be placed on permanent display at the Appaloosa Museum and Heritage Center. A duplicate will be awarded to the honoree, surviving kin or the horse’s owner.

Members can download a copy of the ApHC Hall of Fame nomination packet at http://www.appaloosa.com/. The deadline for nominations is Oct. 31, 2009.

In 2008, Appaloosa Bambi E. and a pillar of the industry, Mr. Eddie Wood, were inducted into the ApHC Hall of Fame, while Perfect Union and Mr. Gilbert Keck were inducted into the ApHC Racing Hall of Fame. A complete list of Hall of Fame inductees is also on the appaloosa.com site.
