Jeannine Edwards returns as Eclipse Awards host


Jeannine Edwards, the ESPN reporter and horsewoman, will once again host the Eclipse Awards ceremony, scheduled for Jan. 17 at Gulfstream Park Racing and Casino in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

This will be the fourth consecutive time that Edwards has hosted the ceremony, which honors the horses and humans selected for year-end Eclipse Awards.

Edwards, who has reported for ESPN since 1995, spent 10 years at the racetrack as an exercise rider, apprentice jockey, and trainer of Thoroughbreds in Maryland before launching her broadcast career.
