The awards are based on graded races, and in particular Grade 1 races.

The winning horse in the stayer category will be at the discretion of the voting panel. This decision was taken as the only Grade 1 staying race in SA is the SA Derby, which would mean that this should be the obvious winner based on a single run. This would also have excluded fillies and mares.
