TORONTO, February 6, 2018 – Woodbine’s Broadcast Department stepped out from behind the camera to receive a Media Excellence Award at last Saturday’s O’Brien Awards in Mississauga.

The Woodbine Broadcast Department, led by Rob Platts, captured the 2017 Outstanding Broadcast Award for their feature piece “Hope and Resilience”. It was the seventh-time the Woodbine crew has captured the award.

“Hope and Resilience” took a closer look at the lives of the trainers who lost horses a little over a year earlier in the January 2016 Classy Lane Stables fire. The piece aired during the Pepsi North America Cup broadcast on TSN3 and TSN5 on Saturday, June 17.
