Woodbine Named Winner of Simulcast Award

Canadian track wins award for fourth time in seven years.

For the fourth time in seven years, Woodbine Entertainment Group was named the winner of the 2010 Simulcast Award at the International Simulcasting Conference in Clearwater, Florida.

The award honors the best simulcast telecast by a racetrack and is open to all breeds. The simulcast entry was judged on technical merit, quality, and timeliness of racing and wagering information dissemination, as well as overall appeal, according to a release from WEG.

Entries for the International Simulcast Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Presentation of Simulcast Racing must have been not more than 30 minutes in length and contain one complete race presentation, including pre-race features and graphics, the race itself, and any post-race replays and/or wrap-ups. Entries must have been part of a normal simulcast program and not a collection of highlights or features.

The International Simulcast Conference is co-sponsored by the Thoroughbred Racing Associations and Harness Tracks of America, in conjunction with the American Greyhound Track Operators Association.
