    Dottie Ingordo-Shirreffs, racing manager for Thoroughbred owners Jerry and Ann Moss, will receive the inaugural Frankel Award from Old Friends equine retirement centers.
    Named in honor of late New York-based Thoroughbred trainer Bobby Frankel, the award is given to “an individual in the racing industry who best exemplifies the mission of Old Friends” and will be presented during the inaugural “Belmont Ball.”
    A benefit for the Old Friends retirement farms in Georgetown, Ky., and Greenfield Center, N.Y., the Belmont Ball is scheduled for Wednesday, June 6, at the Oheka Castle in Huntington, N.Y.
    Ingordo-Shirreffs, the wife of trainer John Shirreffs and an integral part of the team that directed Zenyatta’s remarkable career, will receive the award from Old Friends founder and president Michael Blowen.

  • Congratulations, Dottie. The award couldn't have been given to a more deserving person. We dumplings are indeed proud. Has anyone noticed that the Horse Racing world has to keep inventing awards to bestow on Team Zenyatta? First it was Z herself, who won the newly created Vox Populii Award, and now it is Dottie getting the inaugural Frankel Award. Way to go, Team!
