1 of 1

The 24 finalists for the 2019 Irish Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards, where there is more than €80,000 worth of prize-money up for grabs, have been announced ahead of the ceremony at the Killashee Hotel in Naas on Tuesday, October 29.

More than 300 nominations were made and that list has been whittled down to 24 finalists, who have been short-listed for eight of the ten award categories.

The winner in each of these categories will receive a specially commissioned trophy and €4,000 in prize-money, with the exception of the Newcomer Award, who will receive a trip to Dubai, plus €2,500. The other two finalists in each category will each receive €1,000.

In seven of the categories the yard or stud attached to the finalists will also receive €1,000 to be divided among employees.
The Racecourse Award is chosen by the Irish Stablestaff Association based on a quality programme survey.

The flagship award – The Irish Racing Excellence Award – will be presented to one of the winners of the Administration, Racing and Breeding Support Services, Newcomer, Horse Care, In the Saddle, Leadership (Stud), Leadership (Stable) and Dedication to Racing and Breeding awards who is, in the opinion of the judging panel, the most deserving of recognition for their commitment, hard work, and ongoing contribution to the high standards and reputation of the Irish thoroughbred industry.

The winner of this award will receive an additional trophy and €5,000, as well as an additional €5,000 for their yard, stud or employer.

"Godolphin is delighted to acknowledge and celebrate the fabulous work that stud and stable staff do year in year out," said Diana Cooper, strategic adviser ( charities) for Godolphin. "The contribution of all 24 finalists has, without a doubt, helped establish the high regard Irish racing is held in globally."

Bernard Caldwell, chairman of the Irish Stablestaff Association, added: "The calibre of those working in the racing yards, stud farms and all the support services was evident to see in the quality and volume of the nomination forms."

Michael O’Rourke is chairman of the judging committee and believes each of the 24 finalists can be very proud of their achievement.

"The level of expertise demonstrated across so many disciplines shows how Ireland has achieved such an envied position in the racing world," O’Rourke said. "The finalists have come through a rigorous selection process and each can be very proud."
