Nominations are now being called for Sydney’s ‘Strapper of the Year’ award for the 2016-2017 season. Now in its eighth 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 early 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 close TOMORROW (Saturday, 24th June 2017).
