The winners of the Dan Patch award by the writes of the USHWA was announced today and it basically leaves us with one question.
Who was the one person who voted against JK She'salady for 2yo pacing filly? I guess going 12 for 12 doesn't cut it anymore. Other than that, the voting was less questionable. A rare tie betweeen Androvette and Rocklamation for older pacing mare splits the honor between the two horses, each getting 51 votes out of the 157 eligible votes. Sweet Lou was the aged male pacer, getting all but 3 votes cast in his favor.
On the sophomore side, Mcwicked and Color's A Virgin were overwhelming winners of 3 year old honors while on the two year old male side, Artspeak was the victor.
Tomorrow we learn who the trotter, pacer of the years are as well as horse of the year. My guess is JK She'salady will grab honors for pacer of the year while Father Patrick takes the trotting award, My guess is Father Patrick will take overall top honors as horse of the year.
