The New York Thoroughbred Breeders, Inc. (NYTB) honored the New York-bred Divisional Champions of 2010, as voted by New York turf writers, chart callers and other eligible voters at its annual Awards Banquet, which took place April 11th, 2011 at the Saratoga National Golf Club in Saratoga Springs, New York. New York Racing Association track announcer Tom Durkin served as Master of Ceremonies for the presentation ceremony, which also featured video of the nominees.

Haynesfield, who became a Grade 1 winner and million-dollar earner in 2010, was voted New York-bred Horse of the Year for the second consecutive time. Haynesfield also captured the overwhelming majority of votes in the Older Male division. Franny Freud, sired by New York stallion Freud, was also honored with two championship titles for 2010, named top Female Sprinter and voted unanimously as top Three-Year-Old Filly.
