Matthew Phillips has been named the winner of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association and EquiLottery Games #JustifyandI selfie promotion. Phillips, of Gentryville, Indiana, earned a free trip for two to Miami for the Eclipse Award Ceremony.
Phillips’s winning submission was snapped in the aftermath of Justify’s stirring 2 1/2-length victory in the GI Kentucky Derby over a rain-soaked Churchill Downs track last May.
“We are thrilled the winner of this contest is a horse racing fan who clearly follows the sport,” said EquiLottery Games CEO Brad Cummings. “Our goals with Kentucky’s Win Place Show, as it pertains to horse racing, are to expand the fan base and increase racetrack and purse revenue. If we can create more fans like Mr. Phillips with our mainstream lottery game approach, we will realize these goals.”
