The Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame announced its 2003 inductees at Woodbine Racetrack today. The inductees include Roy Johnson of Calgary, Alberta, the only man to train a colt from Western Canada to win the Queen’s Plate, along with builders Frank J. Selke, the man who imported the sire of Bunty Lawless who was Canada’s Horse of the Half-Century, and Murray Brown, a native of Cote St. Luc, Quebec, public relations director for Hanover Shoe Farms, the largest Standardbred nursery in the world.
