The 17th UK Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards will be shown live and free-to-air for the first time in 2021 on Racing TV, the British Horseracing Authority, Godolphin and Racing TV jointly announced on Sunday. As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the awards ceremony will be held virtually on Feb. 22. The awards are sponsored by Godolphin, and run by the BHA in association with the Racing Post and Racing TV. Nominations for the GSSS Awards will close on Nov. 10.

“These awards are without doubt the most meaningful on the horseracing calendar, and Racing TV has been delighted to support the event over the years with the filming of nominee videos, as well as being an event partner,” Lindsay Davidson, Deputy Director of Broadcast at Racing TV, said. “We are therefore delighted to extend our involvement by 'hosting' the awards from the Racing TV studio.”
“It's fantastic news that the 2021 Awards will be broadcast on Racing TV and we are very grateful to them,” added Hugh Anderson, Managing Director (UK & Dubai) of Godolphin. “It will allow as many people as possible to celebrate the extraordinary dedication of our stud and stable staff from the comfort and safety of their own homes, and also mean we can bring the magic of the awards to more people than ever before.”
