AJAX DOWNS, January 18, 2024 –  The popular grey gelding SNOW MOOSE, one of Ajax Downs’ top Quarter Horses of 2023, was voted Canadian Champion at the American Quarter Horse Association’s annual Racing Champions Awards on January 17 at Heritage Place Sale Company in Oklahoma City OK.
 
Owned and bred by Milena Kwiecien of Burlington, ON, Snow Moose won five of nine starts as a 3-year-old last year including the QROOI Derby and the Ontario Bred Derby. The son of Seperate Interest – Favorite Pearl by Favorite Cartel was disqualified from two other victories including the $48,000 Alex Picov Championship in which he was placed third.
 
Snow Moose, trained by Jason Pascoe of Pontypool, earned $54,672 in 2023; four of his victories came with leading rider Brian Bell aboard another with jockey JB Botello.
 
“This is an honour, especially for a small breeder like myself,’ said Kwiecien at the awards ceremony. “This is very much a family affair. He owes his name to my Mom, who we call Moose. He was born on a cold, March day [March 6] and pulled out from his mare by myself and my sister [Anna Rosiak]. And my grandmother made our silks.”
 

There were 10 nominees from Ontario and Alberta for the Canadian Champion Award which is for the top Canadian foaled horse of a racing year and a panel of industry members throughout North America does the voting.

 

The Quarter Racing Owners of Ontario and Ajax Downs host its 2023 Awards Banquet to honour its champions on February 24, 2024 at the Ajax Convention Centre.

Canadian- Bred Named AQHA Steer Wrestling Horse of the Year

By Lane Karney for The American Quarter Horse Journal 

The Canadian contingent of steer wrestlers has long been a force in professional rodeo, but it’s their horsepower that reigns over the Horse of the Year history books. Two-time Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association world champion steer wrestler Lee Graves’ Rocks Eye Opener, aka “Jesse,” won the award in 2007 and 2009. The Cassidy family’s famous RTR Little Willy, or “Willy,” took top honors in 2008. And Curtis Cassidy’s Dashin Haze, “Tyson,” struck for three consecutive titles from 2020-2022. Again in 2023, the Nutrena Steer Wrestling Horse of the Year, presented by AQHA, goes north of the border, this time recognizing two-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo bulldogger Tanner Milan’s Eds Famous Bar, “Eddie,” as the best in the business.

“I don’t know what the hell it is in the water, but I think because the horses up here are started (in the steer wrestling) in the wintertime in smaller indoor arenas, it takes a tough horse to keep trying and running that hard. You go through so many that don’t make it, but these tough ones, like Willy, Tyson and Eddie, are gritty and tough,” says Tanner, who calls Cochrane, Alberta, home. “When they keep trying that hard, then you take them to the bigger arenas, I think it helps them.”

Eddie is a 2013 brown gelding by EMW Noah Famous One and out of Hortons Kim Bar by Mr Horton. He was bred by Janet Patriquin of New Sarepta, Alberta.

Tanner’s journey with Eddie started early in the spring of 2020, when he first tried the “reject” barrel-racing-turned-heading-horse in a third event.

“They had run barrels on him, and (Canadian Pro Rodeo Hall of Famer and Calgary Stampede steer wrestling champion) Lee Laskosky was heading on him. He was too strong to head on, and Jordan Holland had probably run 20-25 (bulldogging) steers on him. When COVID hit and Houston got cancelled in 2020, we went to Arizona, hoping the California rodeos were still going to happen. They had Eddie there, and after the first steer I ran on him, I knew I had to own him,” Tanner says.

Although Tanner felt that Eddie was special from the start, getting to the point of being voted the Horse of the Year by the top 25 steer wrestlers in the world wasn’t without some trials and tribulations. 

“He started out really good and was going great. I think I overmounted him a little early, and he got a little hot in the box. It was a long process of a lot of slow work on that front, but as far as bulldogging went, from scoring and reading the cow in the field, he has been a natural. There are still times when his wires will cross, and he’ll jump out of the box. But you ride him back in, and he’s back to normal,” Tanner says. “Eddie scores outstanding and runs a nice pattern. He really puts you behind the horns and tries so hard every time.”

Eddie played a significant role in 2023 steer wrestling accolades at the highest level, including carrying world No. 1 Dalton Massey to the win at RodeoHouston and the likes of Cassidy, 2023 NFR first-timer Stephen Culling, Mike McGinn, J. D. Struxness and Tanner all to the pay window. Dalton and Stephen both plan to ride Eddie at this year’s NFR. Tanner will be on hand for the hazing duties and also to accept Eddie’s Nutrena Horse of the Year, presented by AQHA, award.

“It’s pretty awesome. To be honest, I didn’t expect it to happen this soon. Everybody who rode him this year was a big part of it. A big thank you to Curtis for the hazing horse, ‘Mission,’ that’s beside him. Curtis sent me the hazing horse, and that’s huge. The haze horse has to run as hard or harder than the bulldogging horse. He’s the quarterback of the whole situation to let the bulldogging horse shine,” Tanner says. “I just want to thank everybody who rode Eddie and voted for Eddie.”

Cassidy’s Dashin Haze was voted this year’s reserve steer wrestling horse of the year. Clayton Hass’ Be Dun By Three, or “Benz,” who finished reserve in 2020, 2021 and 2022, finished third in the 2023 voting.

Breakaway roping is the rodeo event that she is most passionate about and enjoys competing in this event when time permits. Horses have been a large part of my Busson’s life, even outside of the arena. Growing up she also earned to appreciate horses while using them on the farm and doing lots of trail riding with her family and friends.

Menard’s focus has been primarily on dressage, but has taken up western riding, with an interest specifically in barrel racing. Having competed in both disciplines over the years, she finds enjoyment in the show ring no matter what saddle she is sitting in. Horses are her true passion, but she also shares that she is passionate about music and taught piano and singing for five years at a music school in her hometown.

Picov Family Unveils Memorial Bench and Plaque at Ajax Downs

Families cram Ajax Downs for Family Fun Day and Norman Picov is Remembered

A commemorative bench and plaque were unveiled at Ajax Downs, beside the walking ring, for Norman Picov, one of the founding fathers of Quarter Horse Racing in Ontario

A J greeted kids at the track!
AJAX DOWNS AUGUST 27, 2023 – The two things most dear to the late Norman Picov were family and horses. His Ajax Downs held its annual Family Fun Day in support of the Ajax Pickering Hospital Foundation on Sunday, August 27 and the event was yet again a rousing success. On a picture-perfect summer Sunday, Ajax Downs was filled to the rafters with families who enjoyed dozens of fun activities and got up close to the Quarter Horses racing during the afternoon.
 
It was also a fitting day for the Picov family to unveil a memorial bench and plaque for Norman, adjacent to the walking ring on the track apron. Norman passed away in February. 
 
“Norm was a visionary horseman, who, along with our grandfather Alex and our mom Linda. dared to dream and embark on a journey that turned into a reality,” said Barry Picov, one of Norman’s sons. “In 1969, the seeds of Picov Downs were sown… It was a dream rooted in the simple idea of bringing people together to enjoy all that he believed in. Picov Downs, bourne for this vision, emerged where families could come together.
This bench stands as a symbol of his enduring presence. It is meant to be occupied just as Norman sat here and enjoyed conversations with all of you.”
 
While kids of all ages enjoyed games, live entertainment, exotic animals, and a variety of treats, on the track the racing was fast and furious. The featured race of the day, an allowance race for some of the top 3-year-olds in the country, was seemingly won by the current leader of the division Snow Moose but the Ontario bred gelding was disqualified as the stewards deemed him to be guilty of interference. Placed first in the 350-yard race, which was serving as a prep for the $50,000 Norman Picov Derby next month, was SOUR CANDY, who was recently purchased by Craig Spada and Rick Crispi. Trained by Lauren Spada and ridden by Alexis Sanchez, Sour Candy was one of two winners for his team of owners, trainer and jockey on the afternoon.

REMEMBERING NORMAN PICOV

Norm Picov passed away with his family by his side on Saturday, February 18 at the age of 86.
AJAX DOWNS, THURSDAY, APRIL 13, 2023 – Community, family, philanthropy, and his beloved horses.


These were some of the most important things to Norm Picov, a man determined to grow the sport and community he loved in his hometown of Ajax. Taking the reins from his father Alex Picov in 1952, one of the founders of Quarter Horse racing in Ontario, Norm transformed his family’s farm, Picov Downs, into a state-of-the-art Quarter Horse track and casino known today as Ajax Downs.

Today, Ajax Downs’ popular Quarter horse racing season attracts thousands of fans each year completing Norm’s vision of bringing the community together to enjoy fast horses and family fun. It was important to Norm for fans to get up close to the horses and for the younger generation to engage in the sport at his new track. Through family events, he wanted to encourage the love of horses and benefit his hometown and community.  

The annual Family Fun Day at Ajax Downs raises funds for the local hospital, which has always been important to Norm, his wife Lynda, and the entire family.

Norm dearly loved breeding and racing horses, coming by his passion honestly as his father was well known for his horse business after arriving in Canada in 1931 and settling in what is now Ajax.  Alex and Norm opened the Quarter Horse Racetrack in 1969 on his family farm with a couple other horsemen where they funded the purses for races themselves. Within a few years the track opened a horse complex, arena and tack shop involving community horse shows and stallion stations. Pari-mutuel wagering was added in the 1980s.

The new Ajax Downs racetrack opened with a casino in 2009, as part of the now defunct slots-at-racetracks revenue-sharing program, and Ontario Quarter Horse racing and breeding prospered.

Norm was honoured by the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame in 2016 with a special award for his “dedicated service and unique contributions” to Canada’s horse racing industry.

At the racetrack, Norm’s Picov Cattle Company’s horses, and those it sold, won hundreds of races and were a regular in the top five stables each season. In 2020 and 2021, Picov Cattle Company topped all breeders in the province. Picov Cattle Company also bred one of the richest Quarter Horses in the history of the track, Fiesty Icon, a son of Sugarman Perry, who was a two-time Horse of the Year and earner of over $350,000.

Norm would rarely miss a race by one of his homebred horses. If he wasn’t at the track, he was watching online from his office at the Tack Shop. In recent years, his homebred horses have been named in honour of Hanover Hill, where his farm is located, as well as various family and friends. Among those was multiple stakes winner Hanover Hill Chalsee, Hanover Hill Lynda, and Hanover Hill Teresa. Norm was also looking very forward to his namesake racing this year as a 2-year-old, Stormin Norman.

Norm passed away with his family by his side on Saturday, February 18 at the age of 86. Condolences poured in from the horse racing community and the Town of Ajax.

Ralph Pearson, also integral in the development of Quarter Horse Racing in Ontario, remembers the lengths Norm went to in order to bolster the horse population in the early days of Picov Downs.

“Norm went to the States and picked up a load of horses. There would be 20 to 30 horses and we’d sit and wait for the horses to come out of the truck. We’d buy them and race them,” Pearson said. “So that’s actually how it got going. It was a whole bunch of guys who just enjoyed it.”

The Ajax Pickering Hospital Foundation was quick to offer its condolences to the Picov family, noting that Picov’s support for the hospital went beyond the contribution to the MRI campaign.

In 2010 the family donated $100,000 to Ajax-Pickering Hospital’s Image is Everything campaign – the largest cheque the hospital’s foundation had ever received – for the purchase of its first MRI machine.

“Since 2010, Norm’s beloved quarter horse racetrack has hosted ‘Family Fun Day’ every August in support of the Ajax Pickering Hospital,” said a post from the Ajax Pickering Hospital Foundation.  “Thank you, Norm, for your kindness, philanthropy and commitment to horse racing and our community.”

Ajax Mayor Shaun Collier said the Picov family and quarter horse racing have brought together neighbouring communities and “advanced the development” of the town. “Norm’s kindness, philanthropy and commitment to growing horse racing in Canada, and here in Ajax, will not be forgotten.”

Woodbine Entertainment’s CEO Jim Lawson said “Norman will be dearly missed. Thoughts are with his family,”

Norm followed in his father’s footsteps in more ways than horses; he loved horses but also people. He was widely known as an honest and trustworthy businessman and would take the time to chat with anyone. He always wanted to know about his horses and about what was going on at the track. He religiously read the program before each race day and always knew when his horses were running. He spent his later years, just like his dad, in the tack shop, in his favourite chair, waiting to talk horses.  

Norm was quoted once as saying ‘every day is fun. I love it’; his enthusiasm for the family business always stayed true and infectious to everyone around him.

Norman Picov will be remembered for his love of family, horses, and his community. He saw himself as ‘just a farmer’ but was seen by the rest as a force to be reckoned with. He will be missed by many and remembered by all that crossed his path. 


 
Ajax Downs’ 54th Quarter Horse Racing Season is set to open on Wednesday, May 10, 2023 with a first race post time of 1:30 p.m. For information about our special event Sundays, stakes races, and news, please visit www.ajaxdowns.com.
