Claudio Gonzalez, Sagamore Farm and Jevian Toledo were honored for their 2017 success in Maryland during the inaugural Renaissance Awards Feb. 12 at the Sagamore Pendry in Baltimore.
The program, which attracted more than 200 people, was put together by the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, Maryland Horse Breeders Association and Maryland Jockey Club. Previously, the MTHA and MHBA held their own awards programs on different evenings.
The awards for trainer, owner and jockey, which had been selected by the MTHA, were put to a vote by writers and publicists as part of the new awards format.
