CALL FOR NOMINATIONS FOR STRAPPER OF THE YEAR AWARD

The New Zealand Strapper of the Year award, sponsored by champion Sydney trainer Chris Waller, was a popular innovation last year at the Horse of the Year Awards and will be a feature again this year. 

Three finalists will be chosen, one from each of the major regions, (Northern, Central and Southern). These finalists will each be awarded $2,500, and will have their flights, accommodation and tickets to the Awards covered, with the winner receiving an additional $2,500.

Trainers will need to nominate their deserving strapper or stablehand and in order for them to be eligible they must meet the following criteria;

- Hold a current NZTR licence

- Be employed full-time by the trainer nominating them for a minimum period of 12 months

 

To nominate your stable star and show your appreciation for the hard work they do, follow the link below and send a completed nomination form, including details of a referee, to office@nzracing.co.nz by 5pm Friday, 6 July 2018.
