Winners of the Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards 2020

Welcome to the 2021 Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards

Nominations Open: 9:00am, September 21, 2020

Nominations Close: 5:00pm, November 10, 2020

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.

Anyone can nominate anyone who is employed in a racing yard or stud directly or indirectly including administrative staff, so please nominate today via the button below.

The awards are generously sponsored by Godolphin, produced by The British Horseracing Authority (BHA), in association with The Racing Post and Racing TV.

“The Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards are a fabulous way for us to show appreciation of the people who work so hard behind the scenes. It is a staggeringly generous donation from Godolphin and, in particular, Sheikh Mohammed, who has always shown a keen interest in the future of young people and is well known for encouraging people to strive for the best. Sheikh Mohammed invented these awards and sponsors them extremely generously and his contribution to racing remains unparalleled. In my opinion, this is some of the best money he ever spends on our industry.”

William Haggas, Trainer.
