RSS Feeds Thursday, January 17, 2013

The New Mexico Horse Breeders' Association's annual meeting and Zia Awards banquet will be held on Thursday, January 24, at the Albuquerque Marriott Hotel at 2101 Louisiana Blvd. NE.

The day's agenda includes a business meeting, starting at 11 a.m. (MST), followed by a buffet luncheon at 12:30. Following the luncheon, election of trustees will begin at 1:15 and be followed by a panel discussion, directed by longtime racing industry executive Dan Fick, starting at 1:30. The topic of the panel discussion will be the pros and cons of mixed, split, and straight race meets.

The Zia Awards banquet starts with a no-host cocktail hour at 6 p.m., followed by a dinner and awards presentation, which honors the best New Mexico-bred Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses for 2012, at 7. Zia Awards banquet tickets are available at a cost of $20 each.

The master of ceremonies for this year's awards presentation is Chris Kotulak. Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, Kotulak began calling races at Fonner Park in Grand Island in 1986. In addition to working at other tracks in his home state, including Ak-Sar-Ben, Kotulak also has stops at Louisiana Downs, Hollywood Park, and Delta Downs.

From 2003-11, Kotulak served as an on-air personality and racing analyst for the TVG Network. Last year, he was the paddock analyst and on-air handicapper for Remington Park's simulcast show.
