The 2020 Victorian Breeders Awards

2020 has been an unusual year in a lot of ways.

However, this doesn’t mean that we should not celebrate the success of the Victorian breeding industry.

Our annual awards will be held virtually on the 8th of November 2020. Celebrating the Champion Victorian sire, Champion Victorian bred race horse and Champion Victorian breeder will be conducted on the 8th of November 2020 virtually.

Michael Felgate and Charmein Bukovec will host the awards which celebrates the achievements and successes of the Victorian breeding industry for the prior season.

This year, TBV will introduce a new award, called the ‘Dedication to welfare’ award. This award aims to recognise an individual who goes above and beyond for Victorian-bred horses prior and post racing, as well as throughout and after their stud careers.

In addition to the new ‘Dedication to welfare award’, TBV seeks nominations for the second instalments of the ‘Service to the industry’ award, which last year was won by George Smith and the ‘Rising Star’ award, who was claimed by Blue Gum Farm’s Chris Kent.
