The California Harness Horsemen’s Association (CHHA) will induct two outstanding horsemen and two outstanding horses in March, as its class of the 2007 Hall of Fame.
Selected from a large group of nominations, driver Rick Kuebler and owner-industry maverick Lloyd Arnold will join the selected group in the Hall. California standouts I’m Dam Goog and Denali will be inducted on the equine side of the ledger.
The California Hall of Fame recognizes people that have contributed significantly to California harness racing as a breeder, an owner, a trainer, or a driver and/or through organizational leadership or people that have achieved national prominence in one of the those categories and have significant California attachments are considered for induction. Horses that have achieved prominence in racing or reproduction and have done so in California or have been outstanding in racing or breeding and whose breeders, owners, or trainers are or were residents of California were also considered for induction.
The inductees will be recognized during the California Harness Horsemen’s Annual meeting in late March.
