The Monstar Claims Horse Of The Year Award

The Monstar - one of the top candidates for the inaugural $1.3 million The Kosciuszko - has been named 2017-18 Horse of the Year for the Hunter & North West Racing Association region.

Prepared by Brett Cavanough at Scone, The Monstar had a great season winning the Group 2 Morton Cup on the Sunshine Coast, and was placed in the Gr 2 Missile Stakes (Royal Randwick) and the Gr 2 Linlithgow Stakes at Flemington.

"This award is a tribute to the horse's consistency as he won the same award last year," said Bob Scherf, H&NWRA's secretariat.

A presentation will be made at Scone races this Friday (21st September) where recognition will also be given to the region's leading trainer (Kris Lees-42 winners), leading jockey (Greg Ryan-51 wins) and joint leading apprentices Louise Day and Mikayla Weir (13 wins).

"We will also be giving out the Bede Thomas Memorial Award to Bob Poetschka who has called the races for a great number of years at H&NWRA Clubs, especially at Tamworth and Gunnedah," Mr Scherf said.

"This is awarded to the person that is considered to have rendered long and meritorious service to the NSW Racing Industry."
