In August, Spencer Bramble and his roan Quarter Horse gelding, Pure Blue Boon, won the American Quarter Horse Youth Association World Championship in tie-down roping in Oklahoma City. Bramble and his other mount, the buckskin gelding, W R Lynxalena, were the Reserve World Champions. The Bramble family operates Quail Covey Farm in Queen Anne County.
This evening, November 16, Boon will accompany Spencer to Rosecroft to accept The Maryland Horse Industry Board’s Touch of Class award at the Rosecroft Raceway. The award will be presented during the Maryland Horse Council’s Harness Racing Dinner Program. Presenting the award on behalf of the Governor will be the Maryland Secretary of Agriculture Buddy Hance, along with
MHIB Chairman Jim Steele, Maryland Horse Council president Jane Seigler and MHIB board members Eli Solomon and Kathleen Tabor.
MHIB presents the Touch of Class Award every month to Maryland horses and people who have achieved national and international recognition. So far, more than 50 Maryland horses and people have been honored for winning national/international titles in 21 different equine disciplines.
