2021 Ohio Champions Selected!!!!!

Mike Annechino

Once again Ohio racing fans were treated to tremendous performances from a multitude of magnificent horses in the 2021 season. It was difficult to select the champions in many categories because the competition was so intense. Many thanks to our selection committee – Ed Vomacka, William Couch, and Pat Ellsworth – who spent a great deal of time and effort making this possible.

The winners will receive their trophies in the Winner’s Circle at Belterra Park on Best of Ohio Day June 3rd!

Congratulations to all the horses…and the horsepeople too!!!!
