Jonathan Sheppard has more than a puncher’s chance at having one of his jumpers win the 2013 Eclipse Award for steeplechasing. On Wednesday, the three finalists for the top honor in racing were announced with the Hall of Fame trainer and part-time Camden resident having two-thirds of the trio in his barn led by Divine Fortune, the National Steeplechase Association’s 2103 Lonesome Glory Champions Award winner. The 43rd Eclipse Awards will be presented at the annual banquet to be held on Saturday, Jan 18 at Gulfstream Park Racetrack and Casino in Hallandale Beach, Fla.
