Lorilee Franklin of Willowbrook Riding Club to be Presented Coveted Award on Feb. 17 at Santa Anita Racetrack.

Competitors from Willowbrook Riding Club should be doubly proud of the ribbons they won at the IEHJA End of Year Show. Not only did each ribbon recognize and award the individual riders’ accomplishments but also contributed to the total score for hi-point trainer. Together, Willowbrook riders won enough champion, reserve champion, medal finals and ribbons, from first place blue to eighth place brown, to claim the award for Lorilee. The prize, a scooter donated by Cruizzin Mobility Scooters, will be useful at shows and around the barn. At a top speed of 7 mph (even off-road), Lorilee can be at one arena to the next or at one end of her barn to the other in a matter of minutes! Congratulations to Lorilee and the Willowbrook riders.


The presentation of the Hi-Point Trainer award will be made by Cruzzin Mobility Scooter owner Sue Gysen at the annual red carpet awards banquet. This event will again be held at beautiful Santa Anita Racetrack in Arcadia, California, on Sunday February 17. The banquet is open to all riders, their family and friends via pre-purchased tickets.


The Awards Banquet recognizes IEHJA Class Champions and Reserve Champions, Medal Final Winners, Medal Final Trainer Awards, IEHJA Medal Year End High Point Winners and Medal Year End High Point Trainer Awards and USHJA Outreach Medal Awards. The Perpetual Showdown Trophy will also be presented to this year’s winner.

IEHJA will also recognize its sponsors and thank them for their generous support.

The event includes a catered brunch, awards ceremony and a fun day at the races. At last year’s banquet Triple Crown winner Justified ran his first race and won it.

IEHJA was the named sponsor of that race and four selected members were thrilled to be present in the winner’s circle. Let’s hope this year’s races are just as exciting! Come join the fun, see you at the races!
