The Awards will again celebrate racehorse training yards which cultivate the best team ethos, exhibit outstanding leadership qualities and demonstrate innovative approaches to management. This year there are three Awards categories.

Lycetts Team Champions Award

This year, the award provides an opportunity for racing staff to tell us about their team and to gain the recognition they deserve. The Lycetts Team Champions Award is recognising and celebrating the best teams on racehorse training yards, regardless of the size of the yard and from the staff’s perspective. A £4000 prize awaits the winning team.

Lycetts Leadership Award

There are four sections that make up the Lycetts Leadership Award and Excellence Awards. These sections are based on The Winning Approach, a set of industry standards in management and employment practices. Trainers can enter just one or multiple sections and the entry process has been further simplified this year.

A £4000 prize awaits the winning Trainer for their yard.

The Excellence Awards are kindly sponsored by George Smith Horseboxes.

Farm & Stable Award for Innovation & Wellbeing

This award is an opportunity for Trainers and their teams to demonstrate how innovative approaches to management and well-being benefit the whole yard and also contribute to its success.

The winning Trainer & their team will win £2,000 of products from the range at Farm & Stable. Runners up will win fabulous prizes too.
