DRF’s Livingston receives Charles W. Engelhard Award


Daily Racing Form photographer and two-time Eclipse Award winner Barbara D. Livingston has been honored with the Charles W. Engelhard Award by the Kentucky Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders (KTOB) and Kentucky Thoroughbred Association (KTA).

The award, voted on by the KTOB/KTA board of directors, is presented annually to a member of the media for outstanding coverage of the Thoroughbred industry. The award was presented on April 17 with other honors at the annual Kentucky-bred champions awards luncheon in Lexington, Ky.

Livingston was awarded the Eclipse Award for outstanding photography in 1992, for a photo which appeared in The Blood-Horse; and in 2001, for a photo appearing in Thoroughbred Chronicle.

In addition to Daily Racing Form and virtually every trade publication, Livingston's photos have appeared in publications such as People, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated, Reader's Digest, TV Guide, and Vanity Fair.

Livingston is the author of five books featuring her photography: "Four Seasons of Racing" (1998), "Barbara Livingston's Saratoga" (2005), "Old Friends: Visits With My Favorite Thoroughbreds" (2002), "More Old Friends" (2007), and "Standardbred Old Friends" (2014). She also writes a blog at www.drf.com.

It was the ONLY article free! So I read it as horse racing news. Guess it's the only news? Good article, she has done a good job in the past. In the future she may need to find another publication.....this one is doomed!

It just goes to show that good things DO happen to good people. I don't know anyone else in this game that is as dedicated to their craft as Barbara Livingston. She is out there on a daily basis not just giving us some outstanding photographs of race horses but also photographing those behind the scenes and making their presence known.She truly cares on all aspects. I always wonder when she sleeps, with her exceptional blogs for the DRF, as well as, her authoring (is there such a word?) of her outstanding books. Congratulations Barbara, you deserve this award. The KTOB/KTA board of directors made a wise choice. Thanks to them as well..
