Entries for inaugural racing yard team award exceeds expectations
The inaugural Lycetts Team Champion Award, launched to establish safe and effective employee management practices within the racing industry, has provoked a great response from stables in Britain, with the number of entries exceeding the target at the close of nominations on Friday.
Rupert Arnold, speaking for the National Trainers Federation, said: “Our aim is to showcase the positive results of using the highest standard of staff management practices to develop a team that works well together.
“It has been exciting to read the nominations and get real confirmation of the enthusiasm and camaraderie that exists in British racing stables.
“These are great places to work and I would like to thank them for supporting the award.”
Later this month two shortlists will be announced comprising the four highest scoring yards with 40 or more, and fewer than 40 horses.
In January the judges will visit those eight yards with the winning stable in each category presented with their £4,000 prize at the NTF’s annual general meeting at the Institute of Directors in February.
