Standardbred Canada today announced there will not be a 2012 recipient for the Cam Fella Award. This is second straight year without a recipient.
The Cam Fella Award, named in honor of the world-class standardbred Cam Fella, is awarded for extreme recent meritorious service to the Canadian harness racing industry. Because of his unparalleled contributions to the sport of harness racing, Standardbred Canada established the Cam Fella Award in 1997 with 'Cam' the initial recipient. The award is given, when warranted, to an individual or group that has displayed some of those same qualities that made Cam Fella one of the greatest names in Canadian harness racing.
A national committee of 16, representing the standardbred community, vote by secret ballot on nominees put forth. A winner must receive a simple majority of the votes to receive the Cam Fella Award.
Past winners of the Cam Fella Award are listed below.
• 1997 - Cam Fella
The creation of the Cam Fella Award was the harness racing industry's way of ensuring that Cam's contribution to the sport is never forgotten. (Standardbred Canada)
