Havre de Grace joins Zenyatta in 2010 and Rachel Alexandra in 2009 as one of six females to earn thoroughbred racing's top award. Havre de Grace was honoured earlier Monday night with the older female trophy. She is owned by Rick Porter, trained by Larry Jones and ridden by Ramon Dominguez, who earned jockey of the year. Havre de Grace is in training at Oaklawn Park in Arkansas in preparation for a four-year-old campaign this year.
Kentucky Derby champion Animal Kingdom earned three-year-old male honours at the Eclipse Awards, honouring the top horses and humans of 2011 in racing.
