Ken and Sarah Ramsey took home a pair of major awards, National Owner of the Year and National Breeder of the Year, at Friday evening's Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association's (TOBA's) 27th Annual National Awards Dinner at the Keeneland Entertainment Center in Lexington, Kentucky.
The Indiana-based partnership of Robert Gorham and Mast Thoroughbreds LLC was named the National Small Breeder of the Year.
The TOBA Awards Dinner, hosted by two-time Eclipse Award winner Tom Leach, takes place every year in Kentucky and acknowledges the accomplishments of Thoroughbred owners and breeders around the country. Thoroughbred owners in the four major North American racing regions and breeders in 23 states were honored Friday.
In addition, the Rood & Riddle Thoroughbred Sport Horse of the Year award was presented to the owner of the ex-Thoroughbred racehorse that has accumulated the most points in competition, as tracked by the United States Equestrian Federation. Nicole Oliynyk's Sea Walker received the award.
