At its annual awards dinner, the Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association in England has given the Andrew Devonshire Bronze to the internationally recognized bloodstock columnist Tony Morris.

Morris, who moved from his prominent column at The Sporting Life to be senior bloodstock writer and columnist with the Racing Post when it was founded in 1986, noted that it was a great honor to rceive this award for dedication to service of the bloodstock industry.

In addition to his service as an honorable chronicler of bloodstock and sales, Morris is a former member of the TBA council, and in announcing the award, the TBA’s Alice Plunkett said that “it is no exaggeration to say that he is a world authority on his chosen subject.”
