The final judging will take place on Monday 22nd February 2021 however, due to the effects of COVID-19, this is likely to be conducted remotely with an interactive virtual event replacing the usual evening ceremony.
A celebratory event is being planned for summer 2021, subject to the relevant government guidance.
With over £128,000 in prize money, the awards recognise and celebrate the remarkable dedication, hard work and passion of the people who provide the best possible care to our horses and people.
The 2021 awards will particularly look to recognise the extraordinary challenges faced by stud and stable staff in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, both during the suspension of racing to keep yards and studs moving and since its resumption to adapt to the changes brought by the virus.
The awards are generously sponsored by Godolphin, produced by The British Horseracing Authority (BHA), in association with The Racing Post and Racing TV.
