New Jersey's Monmouth Park honored John Brennan of usbets.com as the winner of the 2022 Bill Handleman Award for outstanding coverage of last year's GI TVG.Com Haskell S. Brennan covers legalized gambling and horse racing in New Jersey.
“John's blog is a must-read for people interested in horse racing in New Jersey, specifically at Monmouth Park, and throughout the legalized gaming industry,” said Dennis Drazin, Chairman and CEO of Darby Development, LLC, the operator of Monmouth Park. “We're pleased to formally recognize John's coverage of horse racing at Monmouth Park and his coverage of the TVG.com Haskell S. with this year's Handleman Award.”
The award is named for the late Bill Handleman, one of New Jersey's top sportswriters for nearly three decades. First presented in 2012, the Handleman Award honors distinguished media coverage of the Haskell and is presented annually prior to Monmouth's showcase race. Previous winners include Dave Johnson and Steve Byk.
