2014 Racing Champion Nominees

The 2014 champions will be announced January 21.

Q-Racing Journal

The 2014 champions announcements will be held at Heritage Place.

The 2014 AQHA Champions Announcements are Wednesday, January 21, 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.

Any trainer suspended through the Multiple Medication Violation System during the calendar year is ineligible to be on the ballot. In addition, a horse who competes under a MMVS-suspended trainer’s name during the time that trainer is under suspension is ineligible to be on the ballot. If an owner/trainer is suspended as a owner/trainer for Class 1 and 2 drug violations or Class 3, 4 or 5 medications with Class A penalties through the MMVS, then the owner and all of the horses owned by the individual, either as sole owner or in partnership(s) as of the date the suspension is effective, are ineligible to be on the ballot.

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.
