Tim Bojarski, who has served as the harness racing publicist for Batavia Downs since 2014, was named the recipient of the 2018 Clyde Hirt Media Award that is presented by Harness Horsemen International (HHI).
Bojarski has over three decades of harness racing involvement, actively participating in all aspects of the sport during that time. His most vital role has come as the current National President of the United States Harness Writers Association (USHWA). Besides his position as publicist and track handicapper at Batavia Downs, he also serves as the publicist for Plainridge Park (Boston, MA) and the Standardbred Owners of Massachusetts.
Bojarski also authors a monthly column and writes periodic feature articles for Hoof Beats magazine as well as being a content contributor for the United States Trotting Association’s website. He has also reported as a live blogger covering every major stake including the Hambletonian, Little Brown Jug and the Breeders Crown.
Also being recognized by HHI are Tom Charters, the recently retired head of the Hambletonian Society, who will receive the Dominic Frinzi Person of the Year Award and Hall of Fame driver John Campbell, who is harness racing’s leading money-winning driver of all time, who will be honored with the HHI Appreciation Award.
These three gentlemen will be feted with their HHI Awards during the annual HHI meetings luncheon on February 28, 2018 at the Embassy Suites Resort and Spa in Deerfield Beach, Florida.
HHI is an organization consisting of 15 horsemen’s associations throughout North America that provide knowledgeable and professional representation for harness horsemen and women to government bodies and industry gatherings on an international scale and strive to promote and uphold the highest standards of integrity in the harness racing industry.
