Video on Foaling Thoroughbreds wins Eclipse Award

Glenye Cain Oakford of the 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 on 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 Jan. 19, 2013, at Gulfstream Park Racetrack and Casino in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

The entry can be viewed online.

Honorable mention in the Audio/Multi-Media Internet category went to Paulick Report for "Breeders' Cup or Bust: Stories from the Southwest," which focused on efforts to save ex-racehorses in New Mexico.

Judges in the Audio and Multi Media Internet category were Turf writer Mike Kane, Michael Brunker of, and Brian Nadeau of Horseplayer Now.
