ESPN won the Media Eclipse Award for Television – Live Racing Programming from the National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA), Daily Racing Form and the National Turf Writers And Broadcasters (NTWAB) for its coverage of the 2010 Breeders’ Cup in November.
This is the second consecutive Media Eclipse Award in the Live Television category for ESPN, which won the award last year for its telecast of the Belmont Stakes on ABC.
“We are extremely proud to win this award for the second consecutive year,” said Mike McQuade, vice president of Event Production for ESPN. “Our team does horse racing as well as anyone in the industry. We are blessed with a crew that is dedicated to putting together a terrific production of the races, but also bringing viewers closer to the action as never before.”
