USHWA ANNOUNCES HERVEY BROADCASTING WINNER

-- From the U.S. Harness Writers Association

MANALAPAN, NJ -- February 1, 2017 -- Let’s Go Racing LLC’s feature, “Always B Miki’s Miraculous Return,” which aired during the Breeders Crown telecast on SNY (SportsNet New York) on Oct. 28, was named the winner of the 2016 John Hervey Award for excellence in harness racing broadcasting, the U.S. Harness Writers Association announced Wednesday.

Winners in the Hervey writing categories and Smallsreed Award photography divisions were announced last week. Meadowlands Racetrack Chairman Jeffrey Gural is continuing his longstanding sponsorship of the Hervey and Smallsreed awards by providing USHWA Dan Patch Awards banquet tickets for the winners.

The broadcasting division was judged by Kurt Becker, track announcer at Keeneland and an Eclipse Award-winning broadcaster.

“Always B Miki’s Miraculous Return” chronicled the pacer’s comeback from two leg surgeries to become a Breeders Crown champion and the fastest horse in harness racing history. The piece was produced by Bruce Casella and narrated by Heather Vitale.

Becker said the production was “well-edited, with a keen sense of what was pertinent to the storyline” and “told the story in an efficient and powerful manner.”

Honorable mention was presented to WISH-TV’s “Indiana Born” feature that focused on the career of pacer Freaky Feet Pete and his owners/trainers the Rheinheimer family. It appeared on Indianapolis’ WISH-TV on Oct. 16. It was produced by Peggy McClelland.

Winners will be recognized at USHWA’s Dan Patch Awards dinner presented by Hoosier Park at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Feb. 26. For more information, visit www.ushwa.org.
