Thoroughbred Times honored with Media Eclipse Award
By: SPORTS NETWORK
New York, NY (Sports Network) - For its coverage of this year's Breeders' Cup World Championships, Thoroughbred Times has received the Media Eclipse Award in the Audio/Multi-Media Internet category. The honor was for "Breeders' Cup - On the Scene."
"It's an honor to receive the Eclipse Award for our coverage of the 2011 Breeders' Cup," said Tom Law, Thoroughbred Times managing editor who serves as host, analyst, and co-producer of the series. "The media world is changing and [Thoroughbred Times multimedia manager Greg Charkoudian] and I decided this year that we would launch 'On the Scene' this year with a goal of complementing our print and online coverage with video and multimedia elements that not only inform our readers but keep them entertained.
"The Breeders' Cup was our second 'On the Scene' series after launching it with coverage of the Keeneland September yearling sale. Greg and I thought after the September sale that the Breeders' Cup was the perfect stage for 'On the Scene.' As other journalists know, covering the Breeders' Cup is difficult because of the large number of horses to follow and trainers, jockeys, and owners to interview. 'On the Scene' tries to tell the stories of the Breeders' Cup through the voices of the participants and we were very fortunate that so many were so giving of their time."
The Eclipse Awards are voted upon by the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, Daily Racing Form and the National Turf Writers And Broadcasters. The 41st annual Eclipse Awards will be presented on Monday, January 16 in Beverly Hills, CA.
