Leishman Media Racing Awareness Award - Applications Now Open for 2018 Award

The NZ Racing Hall of Fame Board has recognized that many mainstream media journalists do not have an awareness of the NZ racing and breeding industries so it established the Leishman Media Racing Awareness Award. The award was set up in honour of our past director and international sports commentator the late Phillip Leishman ONZM.

The award provides the awardee with a cash sum award along with practical exposure to the NZ racing and breeding industries which will assist them to present our industry in an informative manner during their future media career.

Our 2016 Awardee was Vanessa Peart-Smith of Country TV. Vanessa and a cameraman attended the 2016 NZ Bloodstock weanling sales and her work was compiled into a three minute film clip which can be viewed on our website (www.racinghalloffame.co.nz).
