The Alberta Thoroughbred community lost a valued member with the passing of Ron St. Louis on Monday, June 5, 2017 at 71 years of age.

Ron had been a continuous member of the C.T.H.S. since 1999 and was a respected representative of the Alberta Division, serving on the Board of Directors for two terms between 2012 and 2017. He served as a member of the Breed Improvement Committee and as Chair of the Finance Committee, offering his extensive accounting knowledge as a resource to the Society.

Ron was an active Thoroughbred owner and breeder for many years based at his ranch in Swalwell, Alberta. He bred and raced a number of home bred Thoroughbreds under the name Winchester Stables. Runners in recent years have included Valid Position by Tempered Appeal, Highway Holly by Alydeed and Slew the Hunter by Slew City Slew. A recent homebred, Arctic Treasure by Cape Canaveral, just won her Maiden Claiming race on June 3, 2017. Ron was also involved as an owner with part interests in horses such as Smokin Jane by Holy Bull and Sun Runner by Brunswick. He was regularly involved in the C.T.H.S. Alberta Thoroughbred Sales both as a consignor and a purchaser.

The St. Louis family has requested, in lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations in Ron’s memory may be made to The Canadian Cancer Society or  Thoroughbred Lasting Careers Society (TLCS) in care of the Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society (Alberta Division).
