2013 Eclipse Award Winners -- New York Style

The Eclipse Award voting is underway and most of the winners seem pretty clear. Instead let’s take a look at each division championship with New York Style. Here are my picks for each Eclipse Award if only New York horses were considered. Those would be horses that were stabled at a New York track with a New York trainer or had significant races in New York. For each division you will first find the likely Eclipse Award winner followed by the horses with the New York style.
 
Champion two-year-old male: Shanghai Bobby 
New York Style: 1) Shanghai Bobby 2) Overanalyze 3) Spurious Precision
 
Champion two-year-old filly: Beholder 
New York Style: 1) So Many Ways 2) Dreaming of Julia 3) Kauai Katie
 
Champion three-year-old maleI’ll Have Another 
New York Style: 1) Union Rags 2) Alpha 3) Gemologist
 
Champion three-year-old filly: My Miss Aurelia 
New York Style: 1) My Miss Aurelia 2) Questing 3) Contested
 
Champion older male: Fort Larned 
New York Style: 1) Fort Larned 2) Much Macho Man 3) To Honor and Serve
 
Champion older femaleRoyal Delta 
New York Style: 1) Royal Delta 2) It’s Tricky 3) Awesome Feather

New York Style: 1) Dust and Diamonds 2) Contested 3) Emma’s Encore
 
Champion turf male: Wise Dan or Little Mike

Is it possible that the voters will concede the Horse of the Year award to Wise Dan and give this divisional honor to Little Mike?
 
Champion turf female: Zagora 
New York Style: 1) Zagora 2) Winter Memories 3) Hessonite
 
Horse of the YearWise Dan 
New York Style: 1) Fort Larned 2) Royal Delta 3) Shanghai Bobby

When the championship honors are announced on the evening of Saturday, January 19th at Gulfstream Park, the Eclipse Awards will have plenty of New York Style. It seems certain that seven winners of the year-end honors will be from New York.

I wish Little Mike would get an Eclipse, but I highly doubt that Wise Dan gets HOTY without also getting a divisional award.
MMA beat Questing, even though it was at Parx still counts in decision making.
NY style 3yo fill champ has to be Questing right? She won the 2 biggest races for 3 year old fillies in NY.
Look whos on the cover :) My boy!
Brian, I had to throw in one pick that you wouldn't expect from me, thus So Many Ways.
So Many Ways over Dreaming of Julia ... hmmm.
