SPHO-NJ PRESENTS 2014 AWARDS AT ANNUAL BANQUET

MILLSTONE TOWNSHIP, NJ - February 15, 2015 – Awards for 2014 were presented by the Standardbred Pleasure Horse Organization of New Jersey (SPHO-NJ) at an awards banquet on Sunday, February 15, 2015 to honor those horses who have excelled at disciplines off the track.

Some of the honored horses and their riders, along with their ownership and on-track earnings, were:
