Nominations

The Newcastle & Hunter Racing Hall of Fame has hit the ground galloping with more than 120 people nominating their favourite horses, trainers, jockeys and associates.

Hall of Fame Chairman Brian Judd said he was delighted that the inaugural Newcastle & Hunter Racing Hall of Fame has been so well supported and attracted 60 nominations.

"The number and quality of nominations comes as no surprise given the regions rich racing history. It is apparent that the decisions for future Selection Committees will be just as difficult as it was on this occasion," said Mr Judd.

“The awards recognise and celebrate the contribution of horses, trainers, jockeys and associates to the Newcastle and Hunter region or the wider Australian thoroughbred industry,” he added.

Inductees will be honoured with a plaque to be placed in the soon to be designed “Hall of Fame Garden” at Broadmeadow Racecourse along with a commemorative framed print.
