FTBOA Names 2022 Champions

Simplification (Not This Time) was named the 2022 Florida-bred Horse of the Year in a vote by the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders’ and Owners’ Association board of directors.

Bred by France Weiner and her late husband Irwin Weiner, Simplification, who was also named the 2022 Florida-bred Champion 3-Year-Old Colt, was recognized for his victories in the GII Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth S. in April and in the Mucho Macho Man S. in January, both at Gulfstream. He also produced several other graded-stakes performances in 2022 including a fourth-place finish in the GI Kentucky Derby. Simplification also helped his dam, Simply Confection (Candy Ride {Arg}), take home honors as the 2022 FTBOA Broodmare of the Year.

The 2022 FTBOA Florida Breeder of the Year and Leading Owner by Florida-bred Earnings award went to Arindel, who led all breeders from the Sunshine State with $3,050,911 in Florida-bred earnings.

Khozan (Distorted Humor) was named the 2022 Florida Stallion of the Year for the third consecutive year with progeny earnings of $4,513,950.
