WBAL-Radio, Voorhees to be Recognized at Alibi Breakfast

LAUREL, MD – WBAL-Radio and photographer John Voorhees will be honored at the Alibi Breakfast Thursday at Pimlico Race Course.

WBAL-Radio will be presented with the David F. Woods Award for its three-hour live coverage of the 148th Preakness. The show was co-produced by Scott Wykoff and Pete Medhurst and included live calls of the undercard by Maryland Jockey Club and Preakness announcer Dave Rodman.

Voorhees, photographing for Eclipse Sportswire, is recognized for his image of National Treasure and jockey John Velazquez winning the 148th Preakness by a head over Blazing Sevens and jockey Irad Ortiz Jr.

The legendary Alibi Breakfast began in the 1930s on the porch of the old Pimlico Clubhouse and features a gathering of media, owners, trainers, jockeys, horsemen and fans to celebrate the Preakness while gaining interesting and humorous race predictions.
