Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando

It is last call to make room reservations at the luxurious Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Fla., for the U.S. Harness Writers Association's (USHWA) annual Dan Patch Awards banquet on Sunday, Feb. 24.

If you are planning to attend the gala festivities that will honor the best equines and humans in the sport in 2018, room reservations must be made by Friday, Feb. 1. Rooms are nearly sold out so make sure you don't get shut out!

The USHWA rate for a standard room at Rosen Shingle Creek is $199 (plus tax). For a direct link to the Rosen Shingle Creek special page to make USHWA room reservations, please click here. Depending on availability, rooms may still be available after Feb. 1, but reservations can only be made by calling the hotel directly at 866-996-6338 and asking for the "Dan Patch Awards rate."

Rosen Shingle Creek hosted last year's Dan Patch Awards banquet for the first time and the weekend was such a resounding success it was an easy decision for USHWA to return in 2019. This year's banquet, which will be held in the Gaitlin B ballroom, gets underway with the Red Carpet at 6 p.m., with the awards ceremony starting promptly at 7 p.m. Be on hand when the Pacer of the Year, Trotter of the Year and Horse of the Year are announced.

Tickets for the Dan Patch Awards Banquet are $175, with a filet mignon dinner featured. Tickets can be ordered until Feb. 15 by contacting Judy Davis-Wilson at or 302-359-3630.

Remember, all attendees will receive a 10 percent discount at all of the hotel's restaurants, a 10 percent discount at the Spa at Shingle Creek, and a green fees discount at the Shingle Creek Golf Club.

There is still limited space available in the USHWA journal. The deadline is Friday, Feb. 1. To take out a congratulatory ad please contact Kim Rinker at or 708-557-2790.
