Saturday Feature

Race pays tribute to Connie Matlock

Saturday night’s third race is named in honor of Connie Matlock, a longtime fixture with the California Harness Horse Breeders Association and CHHA who passed away on April 16 at the age of 85.

Connie began working as secretary for the CHHBA in 1994 and was a staunch supporter of the Breeders and Sires Stakes. Shen then went to work for the CHHA in the early 90s, again as secretary.

In 2005, Connie was awarded the Presidents Award by the CHHA for her meritorious service to the horsemen and the Sire Stakes program

“She was loved by many horsemen, who considered here a second mother,” said Robin Clements. “She was warm, caring and a great lady.”

Said Vickie Desomer, “Connie was always there for the horsemen, all of them. Her kindness was boundless. Connie was beautiful inside and out. She has been greatly missed since her illness took her from us.”

Connie and Donald Matlock had five children and she is survived by son Charlie and daughters Kim and Cindy and 10 grandchildren.
