The voting panel comprised of Matthew Lips, Alistair Cohen, Lennon Maharaj, David Thiselton and RA chairman Larry Wainstein as non-voting chairperson.

The panel submitted their first round of nominations after Vodacom Durban July Day and voting for the finalists took place after the Gold Cup race meeting.

The categories and finalists are:

Champion Two-year-old Colt – distance immaterial: Eden Roc, Got The Greenlight

Champion Two-year-old Filly – distance immaterial: Gabor, Miss Florida

Champion Three-year-old Colt – distance immaterial: Chimichuri Run, Hawwaam, Soqrat (AUS)

Champion Stayer – (2400 and up; age/gender immaterial): Dynasty’s Blossom, Magnificent Seven, Return Flight, Samurai Warrior, Walter Smoothie

Voting Criteria
The awards are based on graded races and in particular Grade 1 races. As regards the stayer category, the winning horse will be at the discretion of the voting panel.

This decision was taken as the only Grade 1 race in SA is the SA Derby, which would mean that this should be the obvious winner based on a single run. This would also have excluded fillies and mares.

Breeder Awards:
Stallion of the Year
Broodmare of the Year
Breeder of the Year

The Thoroughbred Breeders Association may include outstanding and/or international achievement awards.

Individual Awards:
Champion Apprentice
Champion Jockey
Champion Owner (based on stakes earned)
Champion Trainer (based on stakes earned)
Horse of the Year Award

The awards are a glittering black-tie gala event that takes place at the Convention Centre at Emperor’s Palace on Tuesday, 13 August. Clyde Basel will be the master of ceremonies for the evening and guests will be treated to an array of entertainment. There will also be an after party at the same venue.

A limited amount of seats are available, the cost is R650 per person, should you wish to book, please contact Penny Morsner on (011) 683-3220.

IN the midst of a very a tumultuous time for the racing industry, role players, stakeholders, sponsors, and lovers of the sport on Tuesday night honoured their very best at the annual Equus Awards.

Congregating at Emperor’s Palace for a glittering blacktie gala event, the best of the best from all over the country celebrated their successes achieved last season and drew inspiration for the year ahead.

“The Equus Awards is all about celebrating and enjoying what the sport of racing is all about,” said Phumelela’s Rob Scott.

“It’s an evening where all the nominated participants whoƒ form part of these fantastic athletes can enjoy the rewards of the past season.”

While the big three – Sean Tarry, Justin Snaith and Mike de Kock – made their presence felt in every category, there was also joy for trainers Gavin van Zyl and Joe Soma, proving that the smaller yards have a vital role to play in South African racing.

And while Tarry claimed back the title of Trainer Of The Year which he relinquished to Snaith a year ago, it was Snaith who claimed more than a handful of awards last night – thanks mostly to Do It Again, winner of the
L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate and the Vodacom Durban July.

Do It Again took home Champion Miler, Middle Distance Horse, Older Male, and the ultimate prize of Horse-Of-The-Year

Oh Susanna, winner of the Horse-Of-The-Year title last year, was not le›ft without a crown as she was named Champion Older Filly/Mare.

“People don’t always realize the amount of work, or the size of the team, it takes to produce a winner,” said Scott.

“While the winning connections are celebrating in style tonight, let’s not forget the grooms, the stablehands, the workriders and all the other staff who work long hours to ensure the perfect conditioning of the horses,”
Scott said. – TAB News.
