Every racing season has its share of moments that are forever etched in the minds of racing fans. The National Thoroughbred Racing Association is asking fans to select from several of this year's greatest memories in the 2011 “NTRA Moment of the Year.”

According to the NTRA, selections for the contest were made to “illustrate a wide range of human emotions and achievements as well as outstanding displays of equine athleticism.”

Fans can vote for the “NTRA Moment of the Year” on the organizations web site at www.ntra.com. The winner will be recognized at the Eclipse Awards Ceremony in Beverly Hills on Jan. 16. Additionally, voters that select the moment of the year will be placed in a random drawing with the winner receiving a $100 gift certificate to the NTRA.com Online Memorabilia Store.

"The NTRA Moment of the Year gives fans a voice and sense of ownership at the Eclipse Awards," said Keith Chamblin, NTRA senior vice president of communications and industry relations. "It allows them to salute the people, horses and memories that make our sport so appealing. We look forward to seeing which ...
... one of the many outstanding moments from 2011 they select as this year’s winner."
