The permanent Sovereign Award trophy which is always on display at the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame at Woodbine.
Friday, the Jockey Club of Canada announced the finalists in the 2007 Sovereign Award Media categories. Winners will be announced at the 33rd Annual Sovereign Awards ceremonies at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto on Friday December 14. The Sovereign Awards are the Canadian equivalent to the Eclipse Awards in the US. For the media categories, submissions must be of Canadian Thoroughbred racing or breeding content. For the equine categories, horses must have made at least 3 starts in Canada to be eligible. Finalists for the human and equine awards were announced on December 6.
The Jockey Club of Canada was founded in 1973 by E.P.Taylor to serve as an international representative of Canada's Thoroughbred sport and to promote improvements to Thoroughbred horse racing and breeding both in Canada and internationally. To that end the Jockey Club of Canada organizes and hosts the annual Sovereign Awards to honour outstanding achievements in all areas of Thoroughbred sport - from media coverage to Horse of the Year.
Here are the finalists for all the categories with links to more info where I could find them. I would like to say here that I am very proud to be a finalist for the Outstanding Photgraph award. It is something I always hoped to achieve and I am glad that it was my favorite shot from the 2006 Breeders' Cup that made it possible. Even if I don't win, just being a finalist is wonderful. Now I just have to wait until the award ceremony and see which of the three of us wins.
This is one of my favorite shots from the 2006 Breeders' Cup. Jockey Frankie Dettori tosses up flower petals to celebrate winning his second race of the day while owner J. Paul Reddam leads Red Rocks.
