Apprentice Jockey finalists unchanged
By: SPORTS NETWORK
New York, NY (Sports Network) - Due to an error in statistics involving the voting for the 2011 Eclipse Award for Apprentice Jockey, a re-vote has been conducted by the affected organizations.
On Wednesday, the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, Daily Racing Form and the National Turf Writers And Broadcasters announced that there is no change in the three finalists for the category. Remaining as finalists are Ryan Curatolo, Kyle Frey and Rosario Montanez.
It was announced last Saturday that voting would be re-done after incorrect stats were released for eligible riders.
"This is an extremely unfortunate situation, but given the circumstances, the three voting organizations feel the only fair thing to do is to conduct a second vote," said Keith Chamblin, senior vice president of the NTRA and a member of the Eclipse Award steering committee. "The three organizations agree that to have any Eclipse Award votes cast based on inaccurate or misleading data is simply not acceptable."
The 41st Eclipse Awards ceremony will be held on Monday, January 16 in Beverly Hills, CA.
