The Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards, now in their 13th year, recognise and reward the outstanding dedication and skills of the stud and stable staff who are at the heart of racing.
Today sees the launch of a new website for the awards to provide more information for potential nominators. The awards have been going from strength to strength with the increased participation and support and will now benefit from a dedicated website.
The website includes a newly-integrated and improved online nomination form. This means that nominators will be given a login to enable them to save their nomination at any point and return to complete the online nomination form at a later stage. Other new features include videos of the previous winners, improved navigation and guidance on how to nominate your stud and stable staff for the awards.
The Awards, sponsored by Godolphin and run by the British Horseracing Authority in association with the Racing Post, offer more than £120,000 in prize money, with up to £40,000 available to a single yard or stud. The prizes will be presented in front of an invited audience on the evening of Monday 20 February 2017 at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in Knightsbridge, London.
Nick Rust, Chief Executive of the British Horseracing Authority said:
“Our thanks go to our sponsor Godolphin for their continued commitment and support in creating a dedicated website with improved features. I’d like to take this opportunity to remind and encourage owners, trainers, colleagues and managers you have ten weeks left before nominations close to show your appreciation for hard-working members of staff. All nominees will receive a certificate to show that being nominated is a feat in itself.”
To view the new website and to nominate, visit www.studandstablestaffawards.co.uk. Nomination forms can be completed online or downloaded and posted to the British Horseracing Authority.
Nominations close 5pm on Wednesday 16 November 2016.
