Neilson trained her 200th winner in 2021.

Neilson was elected president of the Steeplechase Owners and Trainers Association in 2010 and again in 2020, and she has been co-director of the Cheshire Hunt Races from 2019 to the present.

The Foundation’s Executive Committee also elected W. B. Dixon Stroud, a well-known steeplechase horseman who founded the Willowdale Steeplechase in 1993 and continues as its chairman, as vice president.

Ann Jackson, a steeplechase owner and Thoroughbred breeder based in Monkton, Md., was elected treasurer, while George Cary of Hockessin, Del., a third-generation horseman whose family has a long history in racing, polo, hunting, and showing, was elected secretary.

A TGSF priority in 2023 will be to provide continued support for the Maryland and Pennsylvania point-to-points, as a partner with the Central Entry Office.

In addition, the Foundation looks forward to continuing its support of apprentice riders, safety, and the general promotion of the sport.
