Voting is open until 8pm on Sunday 24th October.

Awards will also be presented to the Leading Jockey and Trainer of the season by number of winners and two Awards will be made to honour “Special Achievements” during 2021.

Evan Arkwright, Chief Executive (interim) of The Curragh commented, “2021 has been a very good season for the racecourse and although there have been many challenges, the quality of racing and the opportunity to welcome back racegoers again has been hugely positive. The Curragh Awards allows us to acknowledge the outstanding achievements on the track this season and presents an opportunity for the public to be involved and therefore I hope plenty of people will take the time to vote for the winners from the impressive list of nominees.”
