Racing Hall of Fame trainer and part-time Camden resident Jonathan Sheppard will be honored by New York-based Equine Advocates for his dedication to the humane treatment of racehorses at the organization’s 15th annual awards dinner and auction on Friday, July 29, in Saratoga Springs. Sheppard, 75, who has trained champions over fences and on the flat, will be presented with the 15th annual Ellen And Herbert Moelis Equine Protection Award at the awards ceremony at the Canfield Casino. The Moelis’s were the very first recipients of this award for founding Thoroughbred Charities of America with the late Allaire du Pont.
