It is with deep regret we wish to inform the ASHA membership of the passing of Norm Kennedy
Kennedy, 77, was a longtime horsemen involved in many aspects of Standardbred racing all across the country. He spent many years advocating for horsemen and the horses in Alberta. Kennedy served on many committees and boards, including Horse Racing Alberta and the Alberta Standardbred Horse Association. He continued to enjoy harness racing until very recently – he was at the track watching his horses race almost every race day. On days in which he could not make it to the track due to his many other commitments, Kennedy was sure to be watching online.
Not only was Kennedy an owner, but he was a huge supporter of charity programs and any initiative that might help get people involved in racing – especially supportive of giving opportunities to young people in the industry. Kennedy will be greatly missed.
