Sydney Strapper of the Year - Nominations

*** Nominations are now closed. Winner to be announced August 15 ***

Nominations are now being called for Sydney’s ‘Strapper of the Year’ award for the 2018-2019 season.

Now in its tenth year, this award endeavours to recognise the behind-the-scenes efforts by those strappers that tend to go beyond the call of duty. The award, sponsored by Racing NSW and co-ordinated by Australian Racing Christian Chaplaincy, will be presented at NSW Racehorse Owners Association’s prestigious ‘Racing's Night of Champions’ on 15th August at Royal Randwick. The award is peer-nominated with strappers at metropolitan race meetings being invited to nominate who they think is deserving of the award. A selection panel of racing officials will subsequently choose the winner from a short-list of eight finalists.

Nominations can be submitted online  or by downloading the following form:
