Mar­cus Tow­nend,

Sports­mail’s racing cor­re­spon­dent, has been crowned the racing re­porter of the Year at the Horser­ace writ­ers and Pho­tog­ra­phers as­so­ci­a­tion derby awards in Lon­don. Tow­nend saw off chal­lenges from the

Guardian’s chris cook and Bill Bar­ber plus

Lee Mot­ter­shead of the Racing Post to win the pres­ti­gious award. He said: ‘It is a great hon­our and a priv­i­lege to win an award of this na­ture which is voted for by my peers. The three other writ­ers in the cat­e­gory are ter­rif­i­cally tal­ented, so it was a huge sur­prise to win, but out­siders some­times do!’

Win­ner: our man Mar­cus Tow­nend
