AQHA Racing

With 2012 concluded, American Quarter Horse racing fans are looking forward to crowning the year’s champions.

The AQHA Champions Announcements are Wednesday, January 16, at Heritage Place in Oklahoma City. The pre-party will begin at 5 p.m. The announcements begin at 6 p.m., and will be streamed live at www.aqharacing.com and www.qracingvideo.com.

AQHA’s racing champions are chosen by a 21-member committee. The geographically diverse group includes Racing Committee members and respected AQHA members. Voters select champions in each category. They then select the three divisional champions (2-year-old, 3-year-old, aged, etc.) from their selections. From the divisional champions, they then select the overall World Champion Racing American Quarter Horse. Only this horse will carry the title of world champion, the horse that would win a theoretical 440-yard race against other divisional champions.

After the champions are announced, the voting for individual members of the committee will be made available at www.aqharacing.com and in the Q-Racing Journal’s March Annual Review.

Below are the 2012 champion nominees:
