Nominations for the Thoroughbred Industry Employee Awards 2023, sponsored by Godolphin, opened on Wednesday. Formerly the UK Godolphin Stud & Stable Staff Awards, the awards are an opportunity for employees from across the various areas of the Thoroughbred industry, be it in training yards, studs or in administrative roles, to be celebrated for their hard work and dedication to the sport. The nomination period closes on Nov. 8. Run by the British Horse Racing Authority (BHA) in association with the Racing Post and Racing TV, the awards carry a prize-money total of £128,500, with as much as £30,000 available to a single organisation. There will also be an in-person award ceremony after a two-year COVID-19 induced break. Nominations can be made by visiting the Thoroughbred Industry Employee Awards website.
Julie Harrington, CEO of the BHA, said, “These new-look awards, which are made possible by the generosity of Godolphin, now provide the opportunity for a wider range of industry employees, across the full life cycle of the Thoroughbred, to achieve this recognition. I would encourage everybody in our industry to nominate colleagues they would like to see celebrated.”
