Pam Senclair is Florida's 2013 Caretaker of the Year.

Senclair, working in the Jay and Kim Sears Stable, helped develop the successful performance of Markie (Proud Bushy-R Markie’s Angel), the 2-year-old trotting filly that earned $57,000 with a slate of 11 starts, seven wins and two second place finishes and a record of 2:01.2f.

She also looked after Showing Off (Wewering-Walhallal), the 2-year-old trotting gelding that earned $46,382 and took a mark of 2:01.3f. This colt was eight times first and second in 11 starts.

Senclair also added her stamp to the 3-year-old pacing filly Tashia (Six Of Diamonds-Armbro Robin). This filly raced tough during the entire racing season, earning $68,631 with a record of 1:54.1f. She started 36 times and reached the winner’s circle 11 times.

The Caretaker of the Year was chosen from the ten different caretakers who were honored each month during the 2013 season at Pompano Park by the Florida USHWA chapter.

In addition to the Florida USHWA chapter’s awards, presentations will also be made at the banquet by the Florida Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association to the owners of the top 2- and 3-year-old state-bred trotters and pacers from the 2013 season and the annual Breeder of the Year award. The Florida Amateur Driving Club will also present their year-end awards.

Tickets are $75 per person for the full course dinner that begins at 6 p.m. with a one-hour open bar with appetizers. Tables of ten are available.
