Thoroughbred Industry Employee Awards

Dear Illinois Owners and Trainers,

For the fifth consecutive year, Godolphin USA is sponsoring the Thoroughbred Industry Employee Awards program.  These awards recognize special participation and effort put forth in several different categories by star employees.

In order to be eligible to win an award, people must be nominated.  The ITHA strongly encourages nominations to be made for deserving nominees.  The recognition received from being nominated is a great way to thank someone for their extraordinary efforts. And, if the nominee were to be chosen for an award, the prizes are significant.   

The process is very simple. Go to and click on Nominate Now. There are several easy ways to nominate and seven different categories to choose from. Nominations close Friday, August 14th. A total of $128,000 in prize money will be awarded to the winners and finalists in each category, along with money apportioned to their farm or stable.

Please consider nominating someone deserving or encouraging an employer to nominate an employee to the awards program and let them be celebrated for the work they do or the positive example they convey.
