Omega Alpha Healthy Horse Award: Quality All the Way
Wellington, FL ( December 21, 2015) — The Omega Alpha Healthy Horse Award is presented by Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals of Canada to horses whose good health shines from the inside out. The latest Healthy Horse Award was presented during the 2015 Holiday Circuit hosted by Equestrian Sports Productions (ESP) in Wellington, Florida. The 2015 Holiday Circuit winner was Quality, who received the award after being piloted by Jimmy Torano in the $10,000 Open Stakes Class at the ESP Holiday Festival I. Omega Alpha, a sponsor of the Holiday Circuit, was pleased to recognize the talented duo for Quality’s outstanding physical condition and appearance.
Quality is ridden and trained by Torano for owner Deborah Perkins. “This was our very first class together,” Torano explained after the Open Stakes. “Quality just came over from Holland a little over a month ago. We've been testing the waters and trying to acclimate him. When he first arrived, he didn’t look quite as good as he does now, so it's exciting to be picked for this award,” said Torano of the newly-imported horse. “In the weeks to come he’s going to be jumping some big classes.”
Torano and Quality received a commemorative Omega Alpha Healthy Horse Award ribbon, a prize basket full of Omega Alpha health products, an embroidered hat, and a fly scrim. “I've heard of Omega Alpha products—they’re very popular,” Torano commented. “We couldn't have earned this without good help, good grooms, and good care. These horses are better taken care of than we are, and that's what it's all about,” he smiled.
Torano has recently moved to a new facility near the show grounds in Wellington, and plans to debut Quality in the Grand Prix arena by Week 2 of the 2016 Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington. “We've set our sights on the million dollar class,” he said, sounding like a horseman who knows that quality is as quality does.
Omega Alpha will continue to recognize quality as the 2016 season opens in Wellington by presenting six Omega Alpha Healthy Horse Awards during the Winter Equestrian Festival and six awards during the Global Dressage Festival.
