Kelly Spencer, long admired as one of the most innovative promoters of harness racing in Canada, is the newest member of the Ontario Standardbred Adoption Society’s Board of Directors.
For 22 years Spencer led the marketing team at Elmira and Grand River Raceways, and last year she created her own communications agency, True Nature Communications, with TheStable.ca and Grand River being two of her premier clients.
A recipient of the Lloyd Chisholm and the Golden Pen awards, Spencer has served on numerous industry boards and committees over the years. She joins Jim Evans, Bill O’Donnell, Ian Fleming and Heather MacKay on the OSAS board.
“We’re thrilled that Kelly has agreed to join our team,” noted OSAS’s administrator Joanne Colville. “She’s great to work with and we look forward to her input on our initiatives going forward.”
Established in 1996, OSAS is the industry-recognized Standardbred adoption agency in Ontario and has found ‘forever homes’ for hundreds of trotters and pacers for more than two decades.
