These awards are based on performances over the Highveld season alone. In most cases points are allocated to Gr1, Gr2, Gr3 and Listed races for wins and places and once these are added up, the results are then announced.

Over recent years, special awards have been presented to a host of people who have made a worthwhile contribution to the success of the industry.
