LEXINGTON, Ky.— The National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) announced today #MyEclipseJourney, a social media promotion in conjunction with next week’s 52nd Annual Eclipse Awards that encourages horse enthusiasts to share photos of themselves as children with horses or as adults with young foals.
Participating individuals are encouraged to use the hashtag #MyEclipseJourney and tag the NTRA on social media. The NTRA will then share many of the best photos and a lucky few will be featured during the Eclipse Awards which will air live on FanDuel TV from The Breakers Palm Beach in Florida on January 26 starting at 6:30 pm ET. Participants in the promotion can follow the NTRA on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to see if their #MyEclipseJourney is shared.
In addition to FanDuel TV, the ceremony will air on Racetrack Television Network (RTN) and be streamed live on multiple outlets including: NTRA.com, americasbestracing.net, equibase.com, and NTRA’s Youtube channel.
Presented by John Deere, Keeneland and The Jockey Club, the Eclipse Awards are named after the great 18th-century racehorse and foundation sire Eclipse, who began racing at age five and was undefeated in 18 starts, including eight walkovers. Eclipse sired the winners of 344 races, including three Epsom Derbies. The Eclipse Awards are bestowed upon horses and individuals whose outstanding achievements in North America have earned them the title of Champion in their respective categories.
