First staged in Australia in 2015, the Stud and Stable Staff Awards are an initiative of Thoroughbred Breeders Australia and Racing Australia and sponsored by Godolphin
They offer recognition to everyone in every “backroom”, every stable, stud or office in the Australian thoroughbred world from stable workers to exercise riders, to float drivers, to secretaries, to stud grooms, to foaling supervisors and to the growing band of “re-homers” who provide care and a future to horses who can no longer race.
Nominations will close on Monday, 1 July, 2019, and can be completed online via the Stud and Stable Staff Awards website (www.studandstablestaffawards.com.au).
The GSSSA’s provide total prize money of $100,000 in seven categories plus an overall Thoroughbred Excellence Award made to the one of the five category winners.
The awards for the categories include $10,000 and a trophy, with $3,000 to their employer to be shared among fellow employees.
