    Lou Tice-Owner of Assessment

    Lou Tice

    LOU TICE, OWNER OF ASSESSMENT
    PASSES AWAY AT AGE 76

    AUBURN, Wash. (April 3, 2012) – Lou Tice, longtime Thoroughbred enthusiast and owner of 2009 Emerald Downs Horse of the Meeting Assessment, died Sunday in Seattle after a short illness. Mr. Tice was 76.

    A renowned motivational speaker who worked closely with UW football coach Steve Sarkisian and Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, Tice founded the Pacific Institute, an organization specializing in leadership development.

    As a Thoroughbred owner, Tice and wife Diane reached the Northwest pinnacle on Aug. 16, 2009 when Assessment rallied for a three-quarter-length victory over the favored Awesome Gem in the 74th running of the Grade 3 Longacres Mile. Assessment won three stakes and earned $257,000 in 2009, the second highest single-season earnings total in track history.

    Howard Belvoir, who trained for Tice 15 years including the magical season with Assessment, said the owner would be sorely missed.

    “There wasn’t a person who didn’t like him,” Belvoir said. “He was always upbeat and positive, just an outstanding man.”

    Tice’s final starter at Emerald Downs was the appropriately named Leadership, a son of Jump Start who finished third in the Gottstein Futurity on Sept. 25, 2011.

    A memorial service celebrating the life of Lou Tice is scheduled for April 13 at 10 a.m. at St. Edward's Catholic Church, 4212 S. Mead St., in Seattle.
