Two Fair Hill Training Center Products Nominated for Eclipse Awards

Last week the nominees for the 49th Eclipse Awards were announced. The Fair Hill Foundation would like to pay recognition to two nominees who are products of the Fair Hill Training Center and considered top Thoroughbreds in the world. Congratulations to their teams, and all nominees with many connections, on a successful 2019 on the racetrack.

Nominated for Top 2-Year Old Filly is Sharing. The Maryland-bred trained by H. Graham Motion and Fair Hill’s Herringswell Stables stamped her 2-year-old campaign by winning the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf.


Nominated for Top 3-Year-Old male is Code of Honor. This year’s Travers Stakes and Jockey Gold Cup winner spent the summer of his 2-year-old season training at Fair Hill Training Center.
