With £128,500 in prize money on offer, the awards are an opportunity for British racing and breeding to shine a spotlight on the remarkable individuals who make a positive difference to the lives of our horses, people, and communities.

Organised by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) in partnership with the Racing Post and Racing TV, the awards provide inspiring and heart-warming moments and create lasting memories for everyone involved.

Nominations are open until Tuesday 7 November 2023 and can be made online at: thoroughbredawards.co.uk.

There are six award categories to choose from and total prize money of £128,500 – with up to £30,000 available to a single individual and their organisation.

To nominate, simply complete the online form or submit a short video explaining why your nominee would be a worthy winner. Examples of previously successful written and video nominations are available on the awards website.

All nominations will be considered by our judging panel, chaired by award-winning broadcaster Nick Luck and featuring several experienced industry figures, including Sarah Guest and Paddy Trainor – both previous Employees of the Year.

The final round of judging and the Thoroughbred Industry Employee Awards ceremony will be held on Monday 26 February 2024, with the venue to be confirmed later this year.
