Here Is the Breakdown of How They Voted in Eclipse Award Balloting

Here is how turf writers, track racing secretaries and the Daily Racing Form voted in the election for the 1988 Eclipse Awards. For the horses, a 10-5-1 system was used for first-, second- and third-place finishes within each voting group. In other categories, 1 point was given for a vote from each group, and the steeplechase and breeder awards were determined by committees:

2-year-old colt--Easy Goer 30, King Glorious 11, Is It True 7.

2-year-old filly--Open Mind 30, Some Romance 15, Stocks Up 2, Darby Shuffle 1.
