Awards

Sydney Strapper of the Year

Nominations open now

Now in its fifteenth year, this award endeavours to recognise the behind-the-scenes efforts by those stablehands that tend to go beyond the call of duty. The award is sponsored by Racing NSW and co-ordinated by Australian Racing Christian Chaplaincy. The award is peer-nominated with stablehands 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 finalists. The award will be presented at the NSW Racehorse Owners Association’s prestigious ‘Racing’s Night of Champions’ on 29th August 2024.

Nominations can be submitted below or by downloading the following form:  Strapper Of The Year Nomination Form (PDF)
