Awards


TABA Awards Information - Darla Chapman Ripley - dripley2008@yahoo.com

***

Each year, TABA honors top Arabian racehorses, breeders, and trainers for their achievements in Texas. In previous years, Awards were presented in each category for both a Champion Accredited Texas-Bred (ATB) runner and a Champion non-Accredited runner.

In 2007 these prestigious Awards became restricted to recognize only Champion ATB runners. FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE ATB (ACCREDITED TEXAS BRED) PROGRAM. Only Texas Accredited Horses are eligible for the Texas TABA Awards, and two-thirds of these Texas winners in 2010 were also honored with National Darley Award nominations by the Arabian Racing Cup. In 2011, that number went up, with 8 out of 9 Texas Champions being recognized at the national level. And a great showing again in 2012, we saw 7 out of 9 Texas Champions also nominated for USA's highest honors. The numbers have continued in this trend, clearly illustrating Texas racing and Arabian horses in the Texas ATB program are right up there with the best in the country.

The Texas Arabian Racing Champions of 2014 were announced after the TABA board meeting and annual meeting late Saturday afternoon.

The TABA suite was open all evening in celebration of the Festival Stakes (Grade 1 Sheikh Zayed Amethyst Cup, and the HH Sheikha Fatima IFAHR Cup) and the Sheikh Mansoor Festival had an additional suite serving a full dinner course on the same floor.
