Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame – Today, media are invited to attend Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame’s official launch of the new Horses in Sport exhibit in the Mary Simpson Ride Gallery. This exhibit features eight major national and international equestrian events and celebrates the accomplishments of the twenty-six individuals and two horses previously inducted into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame for their contributions to the equine world. Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame Honoured Members attending include; Spruce Meadows founder, Margaret Southern; Sandy Hawley, who competed in more than 6,000 races in his career as a jockey and was awarded horse racing’s highest honours in both Canada and the U.S.; Tom Gayford and Jim Elder, who won Canada’s first Equestrian Olympic Gold medal in the Team event in Mexico City in 1968. John Simpson, Chairman, Owner, and CEO of CANA Construction, Linda Southern-Heathcott, Spruce Meadows President and CEO, and Nancy Southern, President and CEO of ATCO Ltd., will be on-hand to officially launch the new exhibit along with 60 grade five students from Monsignor E.L. Doyle School.
