The Eclipse Award for writing and his coverage of last year's Preakness Stakes was first. Then it was the Touch of Class Award from the Maryland Department of Agriculture's Maryland Horse Industry Board. The David F. Wood Memorial Award for excellence in journalism gives ST Publishing's Joe Clancy  a trifecta of sorts  and just think; the year isn't even four months old.

Joe will receive the Woods Award during the May 14 Alibi Breakfast in the Terrace Dining Room at Pimlico Race Course, home of the 140th Preakness Stakes two days later.

The Maryland Jockey Club made the announcement Thursday afternoon, saying Joe would be recognized for his article "Horse of a Lifetime" that also won him the Eclipse Award in the News/Enterprise category in January. The story appeared in the July 2014 edition of Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred.

The Woods Award was initiated in 1982 and honors the memory of the longtime track publicist and Evening Sun columnist. It's presented annually by the MJC and Pimlico and Sean Clancy, Joe's brother and co-founder and co-editor of ST Publishing, This Is Horse Racing and The Saratoga Special, was the 2014 recipient.

"It's an honor to win the David Woods Award and to be recognized for my work," said Joe Clancy who also serves as editor of Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred. "The California Chrome story was a great one to tell and really couldn't have been told so well without the cooperation of trainer Art Sherman and the whole team. They were gracious, welcoming and open. They wanted to share their good fortune and it made for a great story. I just had to tell it right."

"No article happens without a lot of help, so I thank my brother Sean and Tom Law for the editing help, everyone at the Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred office and the atmosphere created by the Maryland Jockey Club at Pimlico every year for helping make that article become a reality."
