It's time again for the Paulick Report Turkey Awards, an annual event that recognizes some of the less-than-spectacular events of the past year.

As always, there was an abundance of candidates for these prestigious awards and the nominating committee carefully screened all of the potential winners before putting the nominees up before a secretive online poll.

In keeping with the general transparency policies of the industry, we are not able to  divulge the voters or the list of nominees, but trust us when we tell you it was a record turnout, unlike anything we've ever seen before.

Some of the usual suspects make an appearance in this year's Turkey Awards, but there are some newcomers, too. Jockeys, trainers, racing officials … even a bird or two. We recognize bad behavior on the racetrack as well as on social media platforms. There are so many awards given to recognize outstanding achievements and good behavior, we felt it only fair to offer alternative programming.

So without further adieu, we invite you to sit back and enjoy this year's Turkey Awards broadcast.
