By: SPORTS NETWORK
New York, NY (Sports Network) - As part of a two-year agreement with The Stronach Group to co-sponsor the Eclipse Awards, next year's 42nd awards ceremony will be held at Gulfstream Park in Florida.
The sponsorship contract with the National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) begins with this year's Eclipse Awards in Beverly Hills. The Stronach Group joins the Daily Racing Form and Breeders' Cup as presenting sponsors.
"We are delighted to reach this agreement that will take the Eclipse Awards to new and exciting heights," said Alex Waldrop, President and CEO of the NTRA. "The partnership was structured to be multi-faceted and, while it's too early to get into specifics, it is expected to have many ancillary benefits for both The Stronach Group and the industry as a whole going forward."
Gulfstream Park, in Hallandale Beach, FL, is owned by The Stronach Group and is currently holding its 2012 winter/spring meet. The 2013 Eclipse Awards will be conducted in the track's Sport of Kings Theatre.
"Our commitment is to provide a first-class customer experience for racing fans and horsemen year-round at our racing properties," said Stronach Entertainment Group CEO Greg Avioli. "We are excited to sponsor the Eclipse Awards, which has always exemplified the best in the sport of racing. We especially look forward to hosting the 2013 Eclipse Awards at Gulfstream Park which will be a first for the racing industry."
The awards are voted on by the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, National Turf Writers And Broadcasters and Daily Racing Form.
