Glenye Cain Oakford of Daily Racing Form has won the 2012 Media Eclipse Award in the Audio/Multi-Media Internet category for "Zenyatta: Wait for First Foal Combines Science, Art and Anticipation," which appeared on drf.com Feb. 28, 2012.
According to a release from the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, with heightened interest of the impending birth of 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta's first foal, Oakford developed a multi-media project which captured a behind the scenes look at the people who are responsible for the demanding and often exhausting world of late night foaling of Thoroughbreds. Oakford combined online text of the basics and potential problems of the foaling process with a video she filmed, produced, and narrated of Eduardo Terrazas and his night-watchman at Terrazas Thoroughbreds, assisting in the birth of a new foal.
The 42nd Annual Eclipse Awards dinner and ceremony will be held on Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013, at Gulfstream Park Racetrack and Casino in Hallandale Beach, Fla.
