Sydney’s ‘Strapper of the Year’ - Nominations Close Saturday

Nominations are now being called for Sydney’s ‘Strapper of the Year’ award for the 2019/2020 season.

Now in its 11th 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 is sponsored by Racing NSW and co-ordinated by Australian Racing Christian Chaplaincy.

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 nine finalists.

Nominations can be submitted online at Australian Racing Christian Chaplaincy or by downloading the following form:-
