“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.

The Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards

The Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards, set up to recognise and reward the hard work of British Horseracing’s stud and stable staff employees, are now in their 14th year. The awards are run by the British Horseracing Authority, generously sponsored by Godolphin and in association with the Racing Post.

There is more than £120,000 in prize money offered by Godolphin and the winners and runners-up are revealed during an evening awards ceremony held in February at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in London. Nominations for the 2019 Awards will open on the final day of Racing Staff Week in July to encourage an even higher number of nominations from yards and studs.
