TAKTER VOTED INTO HALL OF FAME

MANALAPAN, NJ – September 5, 2011 –Jimmy Takter, three times Trainer of the Year, can add another title – Hall of Famer.

His election to the Harness Racing Hall of Fame was announced on September 5, 2011 by the United States Harness Writers Association.

He will be honored at the USHWA’s Dan Patch Awards Banquet on Sunday, February 12 in Orlando, FL and will be inducted on July 1 during ceremonies at the Hall of Fame in Goshen, NY.

Takter, 50, is the first three-time winner of the Glen Garnsey Trainer of the Year Award, picking up the trophy in 1996, 2000 and 2010. During a 14-year span, he has trained 27 Dan Patch divisional champions, with three Horse of the Year titles and 11 O’Brien awards.

In 2010, he set a personal earnings record with more than $7.8 million. He won 21 races that year with purses of $100,000 or more with 13 different horses – seven trotters and six pacers. In 2009, he won Triple Crown races on both gaits -- Judge Joe in the Yonkers Trot and Vintage Master in the Cane Pace.

His stable has won at least $3 million in 10 of the last 11 years and 20 races worth at least $500,000.
