Eclipse Awards voters have been submitting and revealing their ballots this past week, and I thought I should do the same. Only problem, I’m not an Eclipse Awards voter. But nonetheless, I am still going to put together a ballot, detailing how I see each of the division races.
Horse of the Year: 1) American Pharoah 2) Runhappy 3) Tonalist
2YO-Male: 1) Nyquist 2) Mohaymen 3) Exaggerator
2YO-Filly: 1) Songbird 2) Catch A Glimpse 3) Rachel’s Valentina

Female Turf Horse: 1) Tepin 2) Photo Call 3) Stephanie’s Kitten
Steeplechase Horse: 1) Bob Le Beau 2) Demonstrative 3) Dawalan
Also, although not Eclipse Award categories, here are other divisional races that I have my “votes” for:
Harness Horse of the Year: 1) Wiggle It Jiggleit 2) Pinkman 3) Freaky Feet Pete
QH Horse of the Year: 1) Heza Dasha Fire 2) Moonist 3) Apollitical Blood
2015 was a great year for horse racing and later in January we will see who will be crowned a divisional champion in the Eclipse Awards.
