Saturday, January 21, is Sunshine Millions at Gulfstream with five major stakes events for older horses. More events will be announced in coming weeks.

The Eclipse Awards are named after the great 18th-century racehorse and foundation sire Eclipse, who began racing at age five and was undefeated in 18 starts, including eight walkovers. Eclipse sired the winners of 344 races, including three Epsom Derbies.
