The Lycetts Team Champion Award 2019

Lycetts are delighted to be continuing our support of the Lycetts Team Champion Award which celebrates the training yards that have a strong team ethos

Lycetts are delighted to be working with the National Trainers Federation for the third year running and are pleased to announce the launch of the Lycetts Team Champion Award 2020. The 2020 award has a new look, as a result of feedback from the first two years.

The nomination period has been extended so all trainers and their teams have the opportunity to review the way they work and produce the strongest evidence using simplified forms. Nominations may be made from Monday 7th October 2019 to 3rd April 2020. A new award presentation ceremony will be aligned with Racing Staff Week in July 2020.

The Lycetts Team Champion Award celebrates and rewards racehorse training yards that develop a high performance team using the highest standards of employee management, including safe working practices. The accreditation system continues to grow in profile, allowing trainers to benchmark their business and use a trusted quality mark to attract staff, owners and sponsorship.

Over the first two years of the award, over 50 training yards have acquired accreditation through participating in the award. Research conducted for a Racing Industry MBA shows that participating yards have strengthened their staff retention rates and combine this with growing racecourse success – “Happy Staff Produce Winners.”

A £4000 prize awaits the winner in both categories – yards with 40 or more horses, and yards with fewer than 40 horses.

Listen to last year’s shortlisted Lycetts Team Champion Trainers reflect on the benefits of entering this unique award.

What would Mr Jorrocks think of fox hunting today? How hunting etiquette has changed.

July 12, 2017

If Mr Jorrocks were to come out for a day’s hunting in 2017 he would see much that he recognised from the nineteenth century.

Equine insurance for Hunters

January 24, 2017

Accidents happen. We know they do, especially where horses are involved. We also know that, unlike a car, insuring a horse is a personal choice and that much of the time the decision is based on value. An intermediate level eventer, for example, is worth a lot of money and will only be able to perform at this level if it is in peak...
