*NEW* The NEHC Claymaker Memorial Thoroughbred Versatility Award

Feb 7, 2023

The NEHC Claymaker Memorial Thoroughbred Versatility Award

Donated by: Grimm Racing Stables, LLC

To be awarded to the Jockey Club registered Thoroughbred with the most overall points throughout the season in all classes/divisions except Equitation.

The goal of this award is to recognize the most versatile Thoroughbred who can do everything from Pleasure to Jumpers.

It might be a lesson horse who earns points in multiple divisions even if not Champion in any, as the goal is to highlight the overall athlete and teacher that the Thoroughbred can be.

As an example, a horse may have 500 points and be Champion of the TB Hunter division with no points elsewhere, while another horse may have 600 points in a multiple number of divisions, but have only a few Reserves or Thirds. The second horse would receive the award. It is not about being a superstar in one area – but about being talented in many areas.

To sign your horse up for the award, please email Robin Muksian Grimm at mychip1@yahoo.com, by March 31 of the current show season.

Please provide:

  • Your horse’s current show name and his/her registered Jockey Club name.
  • Any horses sent to Robin after that will have points accrue from the date she receives an email forward only.

This trophy will be awarded annually.

Points will be updated quarterly with NEHC points.
