Cox Receives Stephenson Trophy


Henry Beeby and Clive Cox | Goffs UK

Trainer Clive Cox has received the Willie Stephenson Memorial Trophy for 2017. The award each year honours the person or persons the Goffs UK board feels made the largest contribution to the sale company’s success that year. Cox, the trainer of Goffs UK graduate and 2017 champion sprinter Harry Angel (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}), was a unanimous choice.

Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby said, “Clive is a popular figure across the industry and has been a loyal supporter of our sales for many years, so we are delighted to present him with the Willie Stephenson Memorial Trophy. Clive has always had an amazing eye for quality and value as his record over the years clearly demonstrates. His first Group 1 winners, Gilt Edge Girl and the dual Group 1-winning 2-year-old Reckless Abandon, are a testament to that ability and his newest stable star, Harry Angel, is another shining example.”
