8 3rd Daily Racing Form From Donkeys to the Derby By Jay Hovdey April 26, 2014 Colorful lede, colorful character. Enough detail so readers enjoy Espinoza's breezy personality but also understand his drive, talent and work ethic. Factual information woven in nicely without bogging down the story. An entertaining read. Honorable Mention Daily Racing Form Last Call, Folks By David Grening August 30, 2014 With a yarn-spinner as gifted as Tom Durkin, the best a writer can do is not get in the way.

Western Horseman To Have and To Hold By Ross Hecox July 2014 Picturesque lede, very good feel for the lifestyle and the character of the subject.

That's not to say it's beautifully written, but it is fluid and confidently written. EDITORIAL CONTENT EDITORIAL CONTENT
