Voting opens for NTRA Moment of the Year


Racing fans can vote for the “Moment of the Year” at the website of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association starting today, the NTRA announced.

The Moment of the Year is the only racing award that is solely determined by a public vote. The list this year includes 10 candidates, including California Chrome’s Kentucky Derby win and Rosie Napravnik’s announcement on live television that she was retiring, right after she won the Breeders’ Cup Distaff.

This year’s winner will be announced Jan. 16 at the ThoroFan Awards Breakfast and will be acknowledged at the Eclipse Awards ceremony the following night.

The NTRA has held voting for the Moment of the Year since 1999. All voters who participate this year will be entered in a random drawing for a $100 gift certificate for Breeders’ Cup merchandise.
