NOTICE TO ALL HORSEMEN
At the ASHA Board of Directors meeting held on Saturday April 30th, 2016, it was decided that due to a shortfall in HRA Purse Grants and Foreign Simulcast Revenue, the Alberta Bonus will be removed for the remainder of 2016.
The ASHA Board will work with Century Downs Racetrack and Casino to make adjustments to the conditions sheets to assist the Alberta Bred horses. We feel these adjustments will help make up for the 12% Alberta Bonus loss.
Thank you - Alberta Board of Directors
A DAY AT THE RACES
On behalf of the organizers of this great event, and the participants , the Ropes and Reins 4-H Club, we would like to thank everyone for an amazing day. EVERYONE was so welcoming on the backstretch, and that was greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to talk to our guests and share so much with all of us. We were fortunate to get a chance to spend time with many horsemen and women and additional time with the Phil Giesbrecht Stable, Haining Stable, Gerry Hudon Stable, and the Mike Hennessy Stable. We appreciate your willingness to spend time with us all. We look forward to having more groups touring the backstretch in the future. Thank you to Charlene Barry for sharing your adventures and accomplishments with Leo in his life "Beyond The Finish Line". And also thank you to everyone at Century Downs for making our experience so memorable.

Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,
friendship without envy, or beauty without vanity?
Here where grace is laced with muscle and strength by gentleness confined.
He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent;
there is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.
England’s past has been borne on his back.
All our history is in his industry.
We are his heirs;
He is our inheritance.
