Trot's traditional countdown of the biggest newsmakers of the year continues.

Keeping with tradition, Trot Insider has compiled a list of the most-read 50 web stories of 2008. Yesterday we started the countdown with stories 50-26, and today we're giving you the top 25 stories of the year.

If harness racing had an award for newsmaker of the year, the following list illustrates the award would undoubtedly go to pacing powerhouse Somebeachsomewhere. The unanimous choice as O'Brien Award winner for three-year-old pacing colt dominated the headlines as well as his competition on the track, so we've listed the top 10 headlines of stories specifically pertaining to 'Beach' separately. Without breaking apart the articles, 'Beach' grabbed seven of the top 10 headlines.
