Recently retired Daily Racing Form columnist Jay Privman and Getty Images photographer Rob Carr will be among the honorees Preakness week at the annual Alibi Breakfast for their outstanding coverage of the 2022 GI Preakness S. The popular and historic breakfast–which dates back to the 1930s–will be held Thursday, May 18 at Pimlico Race Course.
Privman, an Eclipse Award winner, will be given the David F. Woods Award for his story on Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas. He had previously been honored with the same award in 2002 and 2013.
“Building up relationships over years, and having access to those in racing, are both paramount to make stories like this possible,” said Privman. “I thank Wayne for his time last year that morning at the Pimlico stakes barn as we went down memory lane, and I thank the Maryland Jockey Club for continuing its support and acknowledgement of the vital role racing media plays in telling the sport's stories.”
Carr will receive the Jerry Frutkoff Award for his image of jockey Jose Ortiz after the rider's Preakness win with Early Voting (Gun Runner). Carr has been covering Thoroughbred racing for more than 30 years and is also a previous winner of his award (2009 and 2017).
