Best Turned Out awards 2017

September 14, 2017

In partnership with The Australian Turf Club, ARCC will reward strappers in each of the five Group races held on Golden Rose Day at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday September 23, 2017.

The best presented horse in these races will earn their handler a $200 cash prize.

Jointly sponsored by the ATC and ARCC, the awards will be presented for each of the following races on the day:

Race 2 - Group 3  -  COLIN STEPHEN QUALITY HANDICAP
Race 5 - Group 2  -  SCHWEPPES SHANNON STAKES
Race 6 - Group 3  -  JAMES BOAG'S PREMIUM GLOAMING STAKES
Race 7 - Group 1  -  DE BORTOLI WINES GOLDEN ROSE
Race 8 - Group 2  -  GOLDEN PENDANT

Horses and strappers will be judged in the mounting yard by ATC  & ARCC representatives. Judging will take into account the presentation of horse and handler, as well as the horse handling skills of the strapper.

ATC Executive General Manager of Racing James Heddo said: “The ATC and ARCC have partnered in this initiative and we are pleased to assist in recognising the hard work of strappers and the care they have for their horses”
