Nominations are now open for the Ira Schulman Award, given each year to a deserving Thoroughbred rehoming advocate. Named in honor of Ira Shulman, who is believed to have rehomed more Thoroughbred ex-racehorses in 50-odd years than any other person or organization. Dubbed the “father of Thoroughbred rehoming,” the award is sponsored by the Virginia Thoroughbred Association.

To be eligible, for-profit individuals, businesses, Thoroughbred resellers or listing agents must rehome at least three off-track Thoroughbreds each year. Nominations can be made by the entity or by someone else. Nominations are being accepted through August 9. The top five nominees will be put before a selection committee, which will determine the winner, who will be formally announced at the Thoroughbred Makeover, held October 2-5 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.
