Nominations for this year's Thoroughbred Breeders' Association Stud Employee Award, sponsored by Peter Stanley's New England Stud, are now open. The award recognises the significant contribution that stud employees make to the Thoroughbred breeding industry and rewards those individuals who have shown dedication and excellence within their roles.
The winner will be selected from a list of six shortlisted candidates and will be honored with the perpetual Charlie Langton bronze trophy and a £2,000 cash prize at the TBA Flat Breeders' Awards Evening, which will take place at Chippenham Park, near Newmarket, on July 12. The remaining five shortlisted nominees will receive £250 each and a certificate in recognition of their achievement.
Nominations can be submitted by an employer, colleague or client, and made via the online form or by downloading a paper copy, both of which can be found on the dedicated page of the TBA website. Any completed paper forms should be sent to the TBA office or emailed to Rob Davey.
Last year's winning recipient was David Gardiner of New England Stud. Nominations will close on Tuesday, May 2.
