Eclipse Awards To Be Broadcast Live On TVG

The 47th Annual Eclipse Awards, presented by Daily Racing Form, Breeders’ Cup and The Stronach Group, will air live on TVG as part of an agreement finalized this week between the leading horse racing network and the National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA), which administers the awards. Hosted by Nick Luck and highlighted by the announcement of the 2017 Horse of the Year, the Eclipse Awards ceremony will be held January 25 at 8 p.m. ET in the Sport of Kings Theatre at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

TVG is in more than 45 million homes nationwide and also available via DirecTV Now, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV.

“It is only natural that the primary destination for Thoroughbred racing on television should also be home to the sport’s championship awards gala,” said NTRA President and CEO Alex Waldrop. “TVG is where racing fans already are so this makes it easy for our people to find us.”

The Racetrack Television Network also will make the Eclipse Awards available across all of its platforms, including a new Roku app.

A livestream of the ceremony will be available online at Eclipse Awards partner websites DRF.com, XBTV.com, and GulfstreamPark.com.

In addition to Horse of the Year, the Eclipse Awards will bestow championship honors in 16 equine and human categories. The program also will include presentations of the Eclipse Award of Merit, for a lifetime of outstanding achievement in service to the Thoroughbred industry, to Frank Stronach; the Special Eclipse Award, to a recipient or recipients still to be announced; the Horseplayer of the Year to Ray Arsenault; and the NTRA Moment of the Year, recognizing a singular significant occurrence as determined by fans.

The Eclipse Awards are voted upon by chart callers and racing officials representing the NTRA; members of the National Turf Writers And Broadcasters; and staff from Daily Racing Form.
