Equus Awards For Cape

The Equus Awards, historically held in August, post the KZN racing season, is an evening of glitz and glamour celebrating horseracing’s finest Equine and human athletes.

This year, this prestigious event will be hosted by Cape Racing at the iconic Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Thursday, 15 August.

The Equus Awards organising committee have begun in earnest with preparations for the South African Horseracing’s premier awards.

The categories include equine awards, breeders’ awards, and human awards.

These are awarded each year based on a combination of the following two elements:

  • Pattern Race Points System
  • Expert Panel Rating

A panel of judges decides the equine categories’ winners.

The esteemed panel uses points tables calculated on the season’s results to guide their decision-making. The judges’ panel comprises seasoned campaigners in the South African horseracing industry.

The 2024 expert judges panel is:

  • Graeme Hawkins (Chair)
  • Deez Dayanand
  • Vicky Minott
  • Nico Kritsiotis
  • Rouvaun Smit

The human awards’ winners are primarily determined by official statistics, according to the NHRA.

The Equus Committee is pleased to announce that we will feature the media award category again.

The three categories of Equus Media Awards are written material (print and electronic), broadcasting (television and internet), and still photography.

The judging panel will be Tarquin Norval, Liesel King and Alistair Cohen, and the criteria for this category will be released in due course.
