Redvers receives Chris Deuters Award
David Redvers has become the tenth recipient of the Racehorse Owners Association's annual Chris Deuters Award, given in honour of the organisation's former president.
Redvers, manager of Tweenhills Farm & Stud and racing and bloodstock manager for Qatar Racing, Qatar Bloodstock and Pearl Bloodstock, bought horses for Deuters in his role as a bloodstock agent.
Deuters' widow Antonia said: "I am delighted David Redvers is receiving the Chris Deuters Award from the ROA this year. His love of bloodstock is renowned and his achievements in racing are considerable. He hugely merits this award.
"David also helped Chris buy his horses, whilst Chris gave him support and advice in his early years as an agent."
Previous winners of the award include Sir Peter O'Sullevan and JP McManus.
Deuters added: "This is the tenth time that the Chris Deuters Award has been given. The recipients over the years are a who’s who of racing and I know Chris would be proud and honoured that they received the award in his name for their invaluable contributions to our sport."
