Hall Of Fame Nominations

Postby stark » Wed Mar 08, 2017 1:10 pm

The top four vote getters get in...

Robbie Albarado,
Javier Castellano,
Victor Espinoza,
Garrett Gomez,
Craig Perret.

Mark Casse,
John Shirreffs,
David Whiteley

Gio Ponti,
Goldikova,
Kona Gold
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Casse, 56, was voted onto the Hall of Fame ballot just months after being inducted into the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame and being named a finalist for the first time for the Eclipse Award for outstanding trainer. Once a nearly year-round fixture at Woodbine in Toronto, Casse has been voted the Sovereign Award for outstanding trainer eight times, and he has trained two U.S. champions, Tepin and Classic Empire, and four Canadian Horses of the Year.

I expect Casse to be voted into the HOF eventually, but this may not be the year it happens.
I do expect Gomez to get in, with both his record and his tragic death providing impetus to vote him in posthumously.
Goldikova and Kona Gold could be an all-Gold exacta for the horses getting in. ;)

Considering that people openly discuss how his son is actually the trainer of his best horses...

Casse might even get in this year, whisper/rumor/"people openly discuss" scuttlebutt notwithstanding. Whiteley has been on the ballot many times, and I believe this is not Shirreffs' first time either. Casse is a fresh face, relatively speaking.

Are you suggesting that Art Sherman will have to buy a ticket to get in if son Alan/California Chrome ever get voted in :lol:

With the love the turf writers have for Shirreffs, I can't see him getting passed over for Casse, who, quite honestly has no HOF worthy credentials at this point.

If John Shirreffs deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, then I should be an Eclipse Award winner for photography. And I shouldn't be, FYI.

Racing has to have the easiest HOF to get into. It's very silly.
