Thoroughbred clients win big at HTBA Awards

Several Thoroughbred Legal clients made their way into the winners’ circle at the 24th Annual Hunter Thoroughbred Breeders Association Awards.

The awards ceremony, held in Scone on 13 May 2015, recognises and celebrates the achievements of the champion thoroughbreds based in the Hunter Valley. The evening is a veritable who’s who of the Australian thoroughbred racing industry. More than 350 industry leaders, clients, sponsors, suppliers and supporters attended the annual event.

Thoroughbred Legal clients among the awards

We were very proud to count so many award winners among our clients.

  • Widden Stud bred “Dissident”, was awarded the Champion Racehorse for his win in the 2015 Group 1 Schweppes All Aged Stakes. The 4yo colt will stand at stud at Newgate when he finishes his racing career.
  • Champion First Season Sire was awarded to “Benetau” who stood at Arrowfield Stud before his sudden death in 2013.
  • Widden Stud’s Golden Slipper winning Champion 2yo and Australia’s leading sire of three year olds, “Sebring”, and Arrowfield’s Redoute’s Choice, were awarded second and third place for the 2015 Champion Sire category.
  • Craig Anderson, part-owner and manager of Amarina Farm, won the Murray Bain Service Award.

Daniel Morgan represented Scone Race Club and presented the champion 2yo filly award to “Lake Geneva” and accepted by James Bester on behalf of the breeders, Katom and Partners.

Our parent business, Equilaw Solicitors, sponsored the award for Champion 3yo colt, which went to Group 1 Australian Guineas winner, “Wandjina”, bred by Arrowfield Pastoral. Annette English presented the award to John Messara of Arrowfield.

Annette took the opportunity to announce the launch of Thoroughbred Legal to the crowd of thoroughbred breeders, many of whom were already clients.

Well done to everyone!
