Wise Dan tabbed as fans' Horse of the Year in DRF Eclipse Award Fan Vote
In advance of the 42nd Annual Eclipse Awards ceremony on Saturday, racing fans have selected Wise Dan as their choice for Horse of the Year on DRF.com.
With more than 11,000 votes cast, the fans' votes for Horse of the Year automatically entered them in Daily Racing Form's Eclipse Award Fan Vote Sweepstakes for a chance to win a VIP trip for two to attend this year's Eclipse Awards show, which will be streamed live at DRF.com and HRTV.com.
Fans were also encouraged to cast their votes in the other 16 horse and human Eclipse Award categories.
The results of the 2012 Daily Racing Form's Eclipse Award Fan Vote are:
"We look forward to seeing how well the fans' picks align with the Eclipse Award champions who will be announced on Saturday," Daily Racing Form CEO John Hartig said. "Daily Racing Form readers are deeply knowledgeable and passionate about their favorite horses and players, and their choices are usually a strong indicator of who will be named the best of the best in each category."
Voter April Ward of Long Beach, California, was selected at random as the winner of Daily Racing Form's Eclipse Award Fan Vote Sweepstakes. Ward's prize package features a three day/two night trip -- including airfare, hotel accommodations, ground transportation and event tickets -- for her and a guest to attend Saturday's Eclipse Award ceremony at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Florida. In addition, they will be treated to a VIP experience at Gulfstream.
"I have been familiar with Daily Racing Form forever," Ward said. "I have never been to Gulfstream Park and thought it would be fun to go to the awards dinner. I love I'll Have Another so I had to choose him."
