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.

ROY CAKE MEMORIAL TROPHY
Group: Hunt Awards
Sponsor: The Cake Family
Brief Biography

Roy Cake (1909-1988) was always a keen supporter of the South Dorset Hunt having started hunting with them from his father's farm at Higher Came near Dorchester. In 1956 he moved his family to Plush and encouraged sons, David and Richard, to ride in P-t-Ps. David had success with Silent Comfort and Richard with Slalom (the John Grant picture taken at Larkhill in 1969 shows Roy proudly leading them in after their victory in the New Forest Adjacent - the horse's first race for him) and the peerless Tawny Myth, a winner of 24 races (14 consecutively in '83/4) including two hunter chases. The horse was irreplaceable and when he was retired the Cake family decided to withdraw from racing as well - but they still remain very active behind the scenes.

The trophy given by Roy's wife, Peggy, was first awarded in 1989 and is presented at the South Dorset Puppy Show.
