Elizabeth "Beth" Cain, the long-time stallion nomination administrator of the Ohio Breeders Championships, will be honored as the 2016 Lady Pace Honoree during the Grand Circuit meet at the Delaware County Fair.
Cain was a part of the team that founded and administered the Ohio Breeders Championship which began in 1986 and is contested during the Jug week at the Delaware County Fair.
A native of Columbia, South Carolina and current Delaware County resident, Cain was the former Executive Secretary of the Ohio Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association and managed the Ohio Harness Horsemen’s Association PACER Stallion Auction that is held every year to raise funds for PACER (Political Action Committee for Equine Racing).
In January 2016, the OHHA honored Cain for her 30 years of service and support to the harness racing industry in the Buckeye State.
"I am so thankful to have had the support of so many wonderful people in our various projects during these years, and I will forever treasure the very special friendships I have made," noted Cain. "I am sincerely grateful and honored to be chosen as the 2016 Lady Pace honoree and be among the previous deserving Lady Pace honorees."
Fittingly, Cain will be honored in a winner’s circle ceremony after a division of the Ohio Breeders Championship for three-year-old filly pacers on Jug Day.
The 2016 Grand Circuit meet at the Delaware County Fairgrounds will feature five days of racing, concluding with the 71st edition of the Little Brown Jug on Thursday, September 22. For more information or to order tickets, please visit www.littlebrownjug.com.
