The Keeneland Association was awarded the 2003 Simulcast Award for best telecast production Sept. 30 at the International Simulcast Conference in Burlingame, Calif.
G.D. Hieronymus heads Keeneland's television production crew and Mike Battaglia serves as the on-air paddock show host for the telecast. The judges cited Keeneland's graphic package as the primary reason for selecting the Lexington track's show. Hollywood Park, which won the award last year, and Los Alamitos provided the main competition from the 21 entries.
The award honors excellence in presentation of a racetrack's live race product to its simulcast outlets.
