Nick Rust |

British Horseracing Authority Chief Executive Nick Rust will be honoured with an OBE for his service to the sport of horse racing. Rust steps down from his post on Jan. 1. He has served in his position for nearly six years and dealt with a range of issues, including changes to the Levy, presiding over a review of buying/selling bloodstock, the increasingly important improvements to horse welfare, increasing diversity and inclusion in the sport of horse racing in the UK and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Jumps jockey Bob Champion was awarded a CBE for his charitable services to prostate and testicular cancer research. Approximately £15 million has been raised by the Bob Champion Cancer Trust since it was founded in 1983. Champion recovered from cancer and later won the Grand National on Aldaniti (GB) (Derek H {GB}) at Aintree in 1981.
