Goshen, NY - In July, the Immortals Nominating Committee of the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame announced that the trustees of the Museum had unanimously endorsed the election of Roy Davis and Arlene Siegel as harness racing Immortals. On Sunday, July 5, 2020, these individuals will be inducted into the Hall of Immortals during ceremonies held under the tent on the Museum lawn.

Roy Davis was a director of the Hambletonian Society as well as of the Little Brown Jug Society. He also served as a director of the U.S. Trotting Association from 1976-1978. Davis won two Little Brown Jugs as the owner of Barberry Spur in 1986 and Jaguar Spur in 1987, and a pair of Breeders Crowns with Kentucky Spur in 1988 and Esquire Spur in 1989. Other major stakes winners Davis owned included 1986 Yonkers Trot winner Gunslinger Spur. Davis was a founding member of the Meadows Standardbred Owners Association, writing its bylaws and serving as president and an officer for several years. His connections as a shareholder in a Pittsburgh cable television company paved the way for the Meadows Racing Network programming.

Arlene Siegel and her husband Jules started Fashion Farms in New Hope, Pennsylvania, in 1984 as breeders and owners. Over the years, the couple built their breeding and racing operation into one of the best in the business. Arlene was instrumental in the farm's success, involved in the selection and purchase of yearlings, foaling operations and regular attendance at races. Fashion Farm's Tagliabue won the 1995 Hambletonian, and Broadway Schooner the 2009 Hambletonian Oaks. Fashion Farm's stallion Broadway Hall sired 2011 Hambletonian winner Broad Bahn.

The Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame, located at 240 Main Street, Goshen, New York, is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you would like further information on the Immortals nomination process, the 2020 induction ceremony, the Museum, its membership program, special events and educational programs, please call 845-294-6330 or visit www.harnessmuseum.com.
