Nominations are open through Aug. 15 for the Irish Thoroughbred Industry Employee Awards–sponsored by Godolphin, formerly known as the Irish Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards.
The awards have been reshaped and rebranded and the categories have been simplified and replaced with eight Irish Thoroughbred Industry Employee Awards which all nominees are eligible for. The Irish Racing Excellence Award winner will be selected from the eight Irish Thoroughbred Industry Employee Award winners. In addition, the Racecourse Award will also be selected. Sandra Hughes, Godolphin's Irish Thoroughbred Industry Employee Awards Ambassador will be visiting racing yards, stud farms, attending race meetings and bloodstock sales in the coming weeks to bolster nominations.
Nominations offer €62,000 in prize money along with Ani Mollereau bronzes. The 2022 season marks the seventh year of Godolphin's sponsorship of these awards which will take place Tuesday, Oct. 25.
Nominations can be made online at www.itiea.org.
