Sydney Strapper Of The Year – Nominations Now Open

Nominations are now being called for Sydney’s ‘Strapper of the Year’ award for the 2017-2018 season.

Now in its ninth year, this award endeavours to recognise the behind-the-scenes efforts by those strappers that tend to go beyond the call of duty.

The award, sponsored by Racing NSW and co-ordinated by Australian Racing Christian Chaplaincy, is presented in August.

The award is peer-nominated with strappers at Metropolitan race meetings being invited to nominate who they think is deserving of the award. A selection panel of racing officials will subsequently choose the winner from a short-list of eight finalists.

Nominations can be submitted online at Australian Racing Christian Chaplaincy or by downloading the following form - Strapper of the Year Nomination Form

Nominations close Saturday, 23rd June 2018
