Shadwell Farm to sponsor Best Turned Out Horse Award

ELMONT, N.Y. – Shadwell Farm, sponsor of Monday’s Memorial Day feature race at Belmont Park, the 116th running of the Grade 1, $600,000 Shadwell Metropolitan Handicap, will again sponsor the “Best Turned Out Horse” Award. An award of $500 will be presented to the groom of the best turned out horse participating in the “Met Mile.”

The award, which will be determined by a Shadwell representative in the paddock prior to the “Met Mile,” will be presented in the winners’ circle before the race.

“Shadwell Farm is proud to continue its partnership with the New York Racing Association by sponsoring the Grade1 Shadwell Metropolitan Mile,” said Rick Nichols, Shadwell’s vice president/general manager. “The history surrounding the Met Mile approaching its 116th year and 2009 being our first year to jump on board brings another realm of energy for Shadwell.

“Shadwell has always been supportive of New York racing and the opportunity to be involved at Belmont is a wonderful honor and an exciting experience we are looking forward to.”

This is Shadwell’s first sponsorship of the Metropolitan Handicap. Last year, Shadwell sponsored the Suburban Handicap, and Jose Amezcua, groom of Harlington, received the award.

Shadwell was the presenting sponsor of Saratoga’s Travers Stakes in 2008. This year, the 140th running of the $1 million Shadwell Travers, the “Mid-Summer Derby” for three-year-olds at a mile and a quarter, will be run on Saturday, August 29 at Saratoga Race Course.
