This just in from the Maryland Jockey Club:
MRMA Award Winners to be Recognized Saturday
The Maryland Racing Media Association’s 2017 award winners will be recognized during Saturday’s (February 17) stakes-filled Winter Carnival program.
Irish War Cry, from the Fair Hill barn of trainer Graham Motion, was named the Maryland-based Horse of the Year after winning the Holy Bull (G2) and Wood Memorial (G2) and running second in the Belmont Stakes (G1). He is expected to make his 4-year-old debut in the $100,000 Hal’s Hope (G3) Feb. 24 at Gulfstream Park.
Jim McCue, photographer at Maryland’s thoroughbred tracks for nearly 50 years, will receive the Humphrey S. Finney Award for lifetime achievement; Maryland Jockey Club President and General Manager Sal Sinatra will receive the Dale Austin Newsmaker Award, which honors those who have made big news the past year; and the Nancy Alberts Breakthrough Award will be presented to trainer Lacey Gaudet.
Sinatra oversaw dramatic improvements in the MJC’s racing facilities and racing product as well as substantial growth in handle, which exceeded $600 million for the first time in nearly a decade. Gaudet won 53 races, numerous stakes and nearly $1.5 million in purse earnings in 2016-17 after never having won more than 10 races in a single season.
The MRMA is the nation’s oldest state-level racing media organization, established in 1937. ... See MoreSee Less

I'm happy to see the backstretch workers were recognized. I worked on the track for many years as a groom and exercise rider. The heartbeat of track is its workers!
