Gilbert Haus, who worked in various capacities at Fairgo while getting his start in horse facing some years ago, has been named chairman of the 1955 Board of Selection which picks 'the cham pjon- "horses of the year.". The announcement of the ' honor Koliig to Haus, racing secretary »l Delaware and Randall Park, was made by Spencer J. Draylnn, executive secretary of the Thoroughbred Racine Association. Hans' long-time association with a,racing began at Pimlico. He has '•since officiated in such capacities as patrol judge, placing judge, racing secretary or steward at all Maryland tracks. .He filled similar positions at Delaware Park prior to his appointment as racing secretary in 1945. He has been associated with Randall Park since 1950. Haus is also active in hunt racing and has served as an official at almost every hunt meeting in .the country during 'the past 20 years. The TRA Board of Selection, -made up of the 22 racing secretaries at the 40 member race • tracks' of Thoroughbred Racing Associations, was established bj the national group in .1919 after conflicting polls had produced two claimants to the title "horse of the year," In Calumet Farm's Coaltown and Greentrce Stable's Capot. "At the time It was felt that . .some official recognition should be given the Champion's by the race tracks," Drayton said, "and who could be better quail- lied for the job of selection than the men whose dally job it Is. to know and appraise horses In all divisions and classifications." Two of the members ot Haus Board of Selection are also wel; known to Cumberland race fans They are M. C. "Ty" Shea, former Fairgo racing secretary, and J Fred Colwill who has held the same position here for the pas 1 several years.
