2018 – 2019 Mare of the Month Awards

The PPORA Mares Awards Series was launched in 2017 – 2018 with the goal of shining to the spotlight on the achievements of mares and fillies racing between the flags.  In choosing our winners we take into account more than just winners on the board in the given month and focus  on eye-catching performances and noteworthy achievements – which may be one off or cumulative.

Competition for these awards was high – there were some real eye-catchers and tough choices to make not least in selecting an overall winner to receive a Mare of the Season Award at the 2018 PPORA Grassroots Awards Lunch.

It was home bred Teeton Power, owned by Mrs Joan Tice and trained by Liz Harris who came out on top.  A dual winner in 2017  -2018, Teeton Power first attracted our attention when landing her Intermediate in fine style at the first time of asking at the Midlands Area Club Meeting at Thorpe Lodge.  She subsequently followed up in her Members at Guilsborough before heading to the Cheltenham Hunter Chase Evening. There she was unfazed by the event,  or by the upgrade to regulation fences, and jumped exuberantly in a bold attempt to win the Mares’ Hunter Chase from the front – ultimately finishing second to the talented Popaway.  It was a noteworthy first run over regulation fences, she is ultra-game, an exuberant jumper and very competitive – as her flat back ears once Popaway came level at Cheltenham showed!   She looks very progressive and is an exciting proposition for next season.  Mrs Tice tells us she has a full sister in training for the coming season so we are excited about  seeing her in action too!  You can read more about Teeton Power by clicking here

We’re looking forward to some more great winners in 2018 – 2019 and we’d like PPORA members’ help in finding them – to find out how to get involved in monthly nominations please click here
