Megean O'Dell, a student in the Race Track Industry Program at the University of Arizona, has won the Eclipse Awards Sweepstakes sponsored by Starlight Racing, Michael Tabor, Susan Magnier, and Derrick Smith.
By winning the contest, O'Dell receives two tickets to the Eclipse Awards dinner and ceremony Jan. 19 at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla., backstage access for a portion of the event, and admission to "Celebration of the Thoroughbred" cocktail party at the track Jan. 18.
Starlight and the Coolmore connections of Tabor, Magnier, and Smith race Shanghai Bobby, a finalist for champion 2-year-old male. Entries into the contest were made by completing a form after visiting and "liking" Starlight's Facebook page.
O'Dell will attend the Eclipse Awards with Spring Evans, also a RTIP student. Both are expected to graduate this December.
