A horse bred by Central Kentuckians was named Standardbred Horse of the Year, Pacer of the Year and 3-Year-Old Male Pacer of the Year at the annual Dan Patch Awards banquet Sunday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

On hand for the awards were the breeders of Rock N Roll Heaven, Charles "Cotton" Nash and his wife, Julie Nash, of Lexington; and Cotton Nash's sister, Francene Nash. Steve Stewart is also one of the horse's breeders.

The awards are voted upon and presented by the U.S. Harness Writers Association.
Rock N Roll Heaven had a 10-race win streak that included a world-record performance in the Little Brown Jug.


Rock N Roll Heaven's dam, Artistic Vision, owned by Cotton, Julie and Francene Nash, was named Pacing Broodmare of the Year on Sunday.

  1. Throughout the history of horses, and their influence on human history, they are considered to be the most important domesticated animals. Horses have provided humans with mobility, companionship, and have served in agriculture, warfare and sport. We should take care of them like providing horse deworming when they are ill.
