FQHRA Annual Meeting Nov. 10

FQHRA to host annual meeting in Tallahassee on November 10.

press release
September 26, 2012


The 2012 Florida Quarter Horse Racing Association Annual Membership Meeting will be held at 1 p.m, Saturday, November 10, at AVS Equine Hospital, 9085 Magnolia Hill Drive, Tallahassee, Florida.

Everyone is encouraged to update their membership if they haven’t done so at this point. At the 2011 annual meeting it was voted to make all memberships run from July 1 to June 30 each year to coincide with Florida DBPR’s fiscal year for licensing for owners, trainers, etc. Therefore all memberships expired June 30, 2012. Only current year members will have voting privileges. Memberships must be renewed BEFORE the day of the meeting. You can join at https://www.fqhra.com/members_sign_up.php . Higher FQHRA membership numbers means more FQHRA clout in the legislative process, which means more Florida bred money for you. Your membership helps races like the 2015 and beyond $200,000 Guaranteed Sunshine State Futurity grow even bigger.

We will give updates on all the upcoming Hialeah meet, current year happenings and legislative plans for 2013. Please call 850-345-4777 to let us know you are coming or if you need assistance with your membership.

FQHRA thanks AQHA and everyone else across the country for your support over the years. At this point we have generated $13.86 million in purse money over the last few years including the upcoming meet. The 2013 Hialeah meet will generate $5.6 million in purse money over 40 days of Quarter Horse racing. We have had the pleasure of awarding Florida bred awards amounting to over $20,000 to one owner back in 2009 and last year the top Florida bred award winner received nearly $25,000. We look forward to even bigger Florida bred awards in the future.

We look forward to seeing you on November 10 and thanks for your support and guidance.
