There is just one week left to nominate outstanding employees for the 2014 Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards.

Nominations close on Friday 3 January for the 10th annual awards, which carry total prize money of £120,000.

Trainers, owners, managers, stud owners and colleagues are all urged to act now to ensure some of the hardest working stud and stable staff in Britain are recognised for their dedication and achievements.

Employees can be nominated for either the Leadership Award (formerly the High Achiever); the Dedication to Racing Award; the Stud Staff Award; the Rider/Groom Award; the Administration Staff Award; or the David Nicholson Newcomer Award.

The Employee of the Year will be selected from among the winners of the first four categories.

The winner of each of the first five categories will receive a prize of £5,000 with an additional £5,000 also being awarded to the winner’s yard or stud. Two runners-up in the first four categories will win £2,000 each, with the same amount going to their year or stud. The winner of the Administration Staff Award will receive £5,000, with the same amount going to their yard or stud, and the winner of the David Nicholson Newcomer Award will receive £2,000, with the same amount going to their yard or stud, while two runners-up will receive £1,000 each, with the same amount for their yard. The Employee of the Year will receive an additional £15,000, with the same amount awarded to their yard or stud.

The winners of the six categories will be honoured during an evening ceremony at the Jumeirah Carlton Towers hotel in London on Tuesday February 25th to mark the tenth anniversary of the awards which are sponsored by Godolphin and organised by the British Horseracing Authority in association with the Racing Post.
