As the Wessex Area 2020-21 season was unfortunately limited to just five meetings, the Area has decided that the Annual Awards will not be formally presented. This is in line with the decision taken last year.

However we we would like to recognise the huge efforts that all participants have put in throughout the season and their continued support of the Wessex Area, so consequently in conjunction with one of our long standing sponsors, Tanners Wine Merchants of Shrewsbury, we would like to present the winners of both Trainer awards, leading lady jockey, leading male jockey, leading novice jockey and also leading owner with a bottle of Tanners champagne. We will be in touch with the winners shortly.

Brief Biography

The West of England Bookmakers Protection Association is an affiliate of the National Association of Bookmakers (NAB). which strives to ameliorate the image and status of the bookmaking and racing industry (especially horseracing and greyhound racing) and to defend the interests of its members. It gives practical help and advice to individual bookmakers and its affiliated area associations. One of the NAB’s main objectives is to ensure that the interests of on- and off-course bookmakers are treated equally. In pursuing its objectives, the NAB reflects the wishes of its constituent member associations, adopts a constructive attitude in its dealings with other organisations in the racing industry and, where appropriate, acts in tandem with them for the common good.

The Trophy was first presented in 2002.
