Romans honored with Big Sport of Turfdom Award
Dale Romans, trainer of 2012 standouts Little Mike, Shackleford, and Dullahan, was presented with the Big Sport of Turfdom Award at a luncheon on Wednesday at the Global Symposium on Racing and Gaming at the University of Arizona.
The award, which is presented by the Turf Publicists of America, is given to an individual who has worked with publicists and the media to promote the sport.
In his acceptance speech, Romans said that he was “honored” to receive the award.
“At first, I was thinking why would they give me an award for talking about horses?” Romans said. “That's all I know how to talk about and all I want to talk about.”
