London, May 23, 2017 -- The Raceway at Western Fair District has announced that long time harness racing horseman/owner/breeder Mac Lilley will be this year's inductee into its prestigious Wall of Fame.

Lilley, who owns and operates his farm just west of London, dove into the business in the early 1970s with the purchase of his first stallion, Zip Tar, and has not looked back. Since then, his farm has stood some 47 stallion including Super Wave, Springfield, Bo Knows Jate, Whosurboy, Rambaran and Warrawee Needy, just to name a few.

Lilley was one of the first to offer a version of fractional ownership in the 70s and also leased and operated the Hawkinsville Training Centre in Georgia for 12 years in the late 1980s.

Mac and his wife Ann have five sons and a daughter, 17 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren, most of whom are involved in the family farm in one way or another.

He will be inducted into The Raceway's Wall of Fame during a ceremony at the track on Friday, May 12. That night will also feature the annual Wall of Fame Pace.
