Salute To Champions at Willowdale!

It was a beautiful day yesterday at the Willowdale races, with the weather God's shining upon us!  There was a packed field in attendance to enjoy a day of racing, tailgating, shopping and spectating.  The USEF generously helped sponsor the "Salute To Champions", which honored local Olympians & Medal winners who have represented our country over the years.

In attendance for the procession were several area equestrians including our own Jessica Ransehousen, Donnan Sharp Jones, Jane Sleeper, Bruce Davidson, Tod Flettrich and Michael Matz.  They were paraded onto the course by the lovely 4 in hand driven by Mike Gracie, and each of the participants was honored with an introduction.  Later they all came up to the USEF tent to sign autographs for fans of all ages.

Many thanks go out to Jessica for participating in the celebration.  Here are some wonderful photos taken by infamous area photographer Jim Graham.  Enjoy the slideshow!
