Our Owner-Trainer of the Month Awards champion the achievements of  one of the most traditional elements of the grassroots pointing community owner-trainers who not only pay the bills but also put in dedication and  the hours of hard graft needed to produce their horses in winning form on raceday.

In choosing our winners we are recognising  personal achievements – not just the number of races won.  

This season we chose  5 monthly award winners and an overall  “Owner-Trainer of the Season”
