  1. 1. TheNewYork Press Club, | @NYPressClubFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEContact: Debra Caruso/DJC 212-971-9708New York Times Wins New York Press Club Gold Keyboard InvestigativeJournalism Award for Series, "Breakdown."Times wins six awards in total; Newsday wins seven; The Associated Press and The WallStreet Journal win six apiece. Among tri-state broadcasters, News 12 shops in New Yorkand New Jersey win 11 Press Club awards; WCBS Newsradio 880 wins seven.In a series of articles entitled “Breakdown,” The New York Times used the full gamut of multimediatools to document how bigger purses, swelled by casino money, have corrupted horse racingacross the nation. The series documented how money encouraged trainers to rely on painmedicine to race thousands of tired, injured and unfit horses, often with catastrophic results suchas at Aqueduct in Queens where horse fatalities doubled after the opening of a nearby casino.Reporter Walt Bogdanich and a Times team that included Joe Drape, Rebecca Ruiz and GriffPalmer, did what no one had done before. When they were through, they had changed the face ofthoroughbred racing across America through the analysis of contemporaneous accounts of nofewer than 150,000 races involving more than a million horses. Calls for track reform andregulation arose almost immediately as a result of the facts uncovered and presented in the“Breakdown” series.Superstorm Sandy Special AwardsBecause of the extraordinary nature of the coverage of Superstorm Sandy, special awards werecreated this year to acknowledge the exemplary journalism produced during that event. 21 suchawards will be presented on June 10th, during the Press Clubs awards ceremony.Nearly 500 entries were received in this years competition, submitted by journalists publishingor broadcasting for 71 metro New York news organizations.An enduring tradition in New York media, the annual New York Press Club Awards ForJournalism honor excellence in the craft by writers, reporters, editors, producers, shooters andmultimediographers.
