The deadline to submit is Jan. 12. Only JPG files will be accepted at the e-mail address.

"American Pharoah has served as racing's greatest ambassador in the past year, posing for photos with thousands of visitors," said Keith Chamblin, NTRA chief operating officer and senior executive producer of the Eclipse Awards. "This Eclipse Awards ceremony will be a celebration not only of the Triple Crown winner's historic feats on the track but also of his immense popularity and influence beyond racing. With everyone's participation the NTRA and Xpressbet hope to demonstrate the special connection American Pharoah had with the public in a very personal way."
