First class of Maryland-bred hall of fame horses to be celebrated Saturday

The first class of the Maryland-Bred Hall of Fame will be introduced Saturday at Pimlico.

The 12 original members are: Broad Brush, Challedon, Cigar, Find, Gallorette, Jameela, Politely, Safely Kept, Twixt and Vertex and steeplechasers Elkridge and Jay Trump.

The hall is a collaboration between the Maryland Horse Breeders Association and the Maryland Racing Media Association. It will eventually have a physical home, MHBA executive director Crickett Goodall said, but for now it resides at www.mdthoroughbredhalloffame.com.

Connections for all of the horses have been invited to Pimlico, and will gather in the winner’s circle for a ceremony at about 12:15, Goodall said.

The Racing Biz, a site covering Mid-Atlantic racing, has done strong work in reviewing each of the inductees in case you're looking for more information.
