Ned Allard will judge the upcoming Maryland Horse Breeders' Association's 89th Yearling Show. Open to all yearlings eligible for Maryland-bred registration, the show will be held July 23 at the Maryland State Fairgrounds' Horse Show Ring in Timonium.
A native of Tenafly, N.J, Allard got his start in the business working for trainer George Handy in New England in the late 1950s. In 1970, he opened his own stable at the now-defunct Lincoln Downs in Rhode Island.
Among the notable horses trained by Allard is racing Hall of Famer Mom's Command, who won the “Triple Tiara” for fillies in 1985, sweeping her way through the Acorn S., the Mother Goose S. and the Coaching Club American Oaks.
“I've trained a lot of nice horses and it's been a lot of fun,” the 77-year-old Allard said of his training career. “I feel honored to be asked to judge this show.”
