Judy Davis-Wilson, the current executive administrator of the Delaware Standardbred Breeders' Fund and involved at the highest levels of the sport for over 40 years, has been appointed by U.S. Harness Writers Association (USHWA) president Tim Bojarski to a six-year term on the Hall of Fame Screening Committee, which ultimately decides the ballot candidates for the sport's highest honor, the Hall of Fame, every summer.
A daughter of two noted Delaware-based horsepeople (Olin and Ruth Davis), Wilson has worked at tracks in her native state and nearby Pennsylvania, for the United States Trotting Association, and for the Hambletonian Society as stakes manager for 10 years before assuming her current position. Wilson served as president of USHWA from 2006-2008 and as treasurer for several years after that, and she has been voted the Alan Prince USHWA Member of the Year.
"Judy Davis-Wilson has worked in the sport in many capacities since age 15, and has watched the careers of several generations of horsemen progress and produce statistics and performances that would make them Hall of Fame material," noted Bojarski. "The wealth of experience and exposure she has gained in harness racing, along with her integrity, makes her a desirable member of the Screening Committee."
In a straight "Harrington-Harrington swap," as Wilson comes on the Screening Committee, her lifelong acquaintance from the midstate Delaware city, Randy Manges, concludes a 12-year service on the Committee. (USHWA)
