THE EQUUS AWARDS

12 August 2010

The Equus Awards will for the first time be sponsored by Racing South Africa, the company established to represent the major stakeholders of South African horseracing and breeding; namely the breeders, operators and owners.

This black tie event will honour last season’s Champions and will be staged at the Emperors Palace Centre Court in Johannesburg on Thursday, 12 August 2010.

The format for this year’s Equus Awards takes on a very different feel with presentations being conducted in a cinematic environment with the opulent Banquet following and the coveted “Horse Of The Year” award to be announced at the end of dinner by Racing South Africa Chairman, Mr Vidrik Thurling.

Longstanding Chairman of the organizing committee, Mr Larry Wainstein, is confident guests will enjoy the changes and all is set for an evening of great celebration!

The 2010 voting panel consists of Vee Moodley (Chairman), Patrick Davis, Graeme Hawkins, Robert Garner, Nico Kritsiotis, Jehan Malherbe, Sheldon Peters and Roger Smith.
