The big night honouring the Champions is the highlight of the racing year, and this year’s event is another 600-plus sellout. The Summerhill contingent (15 strong) is travelling to Goldrush City as we log this report, and our third consecutive Breeder’s Title is one of the few Championships about which there’s little debate.

The finalists in each racing category are listed below. Tomorrow morning, we’ll give you all the Winners, as well as the major categories that flow from them, such as Horse of The Year, Owner of the Year etc.
