    The evil low life’s who set fire to the stable of Hettie (Jumireya) and her son Impossible Dream who perished. :-(
    Villian is too kind a word for those that were behind this act of cruelty.

    Will put up some more later Nathan as would not put another person on the same post as this nomination…Jac

    Poster of the Year – Stilvi

    Thread of the year – Surprisingly, no absolute standout thread in “Horse Racing” this year, which was unusual, so North’s Horses To Follow – 2017/18 Season.
    https://theracingforum.co.uk/forums/topic/norths-horses-to-follow-national-hunt-season-201718/

    Jumps Horse – Sizing John, some feat to win those 3 Gold Cups, very impressive.

    Jumps Trainer – Gordon Elliot

    Hero – Cause of Causes, 3 Festival Wins in a row, and all very easily

    Riding Performance – no question, Lisa O’Neil, Tiger Roll, as I said at the time, Tiger isn’t the biggest, and they hit what seemed like every fence, and at one stage, I’m sure the pair of them ran onto the hurdles course, rattled the top of a few flights just for good measure, before returning to the pack. Despite those mistakes, bizarrely, it never looked in doubt, and she rode the rest of them to sleep, and took lengths out of them heading for home.

    If people can provide a link when nominating ‘thread of the year’ it would be grateful
    Don’t worry about the linking the Frankel thread Jac, I’ll find that one easy enough as Joni bumps it up on the hour every hour…… :rose:

    Riding performance for me has to be Harry Teal on Howaboutnever at Worcester on 18th July, it was just an outstanding display of determination from the chap who just edges out Tommy Dawson on Captain Sharpe at Hexham in my book.

    Poster of the Year: Jonibake – knows the subject inside out and profitable tipster, yet doesn’t get on your nerves like some. And Steeplechasing – Knows his stuff and not afraid to take me on.
    Thread of the year Joni’s Poni’s – season 6 – Another profitable season.

    Jumps Horse Established horses disappointed me, so Altior and Thistlecrack – outstanding novices
    Flat Jockey The under-rated Champion – Sylvestre De Sousa.
    Jumps Jockey Richard Johnson – Ruby and Barry don’t seem the force of old.
    Flat Trainer Aidan O’Brien – Brilliant Group 1 World Record despite not having an outstanding racehorse.
    Jumps Trainer Colin Tizzard and Nigel Twiston Davies – One maintained his rise after a breakthrough year, the other looked just behind the top bracket and has surprised me this year with some great training feats.
    Hero The lads and lasses who make this game work
    Riding Performance

    One to Watch in 2018 James Bowen – simply the best 7 lbs (now 5) conditional I’ve seen since AP McCoy.

    I’ve had some more time to think now.

    Jumps trainer: Nicky Henderson for handling his Arkle, RSA and Champion Hurdle winners so well.

    Flat trainer: John Gosden; I’m surprised he hasn’t been mentioned yet.

    Jumps horse: Buveur D’air for being the class act at the top of the hurdling tree.

    Flat horse: Highland Reel for being the globetrotters of all globetrotters and adding a Royal Ascot victory over 10 furlongs to his ‘turn up and win’ effort at Epsom.

    Flat jockey: Ryan Moore for so many quality rides including but not limited to Gustav Klimt at Newmarket and Declarationofpeace at Del Mar.

    One to watch 2018: Amedeo Modigliani because he’s going to win the Derby.

    Racecourse: Sandown as it’s still the best viewing track in the country.

    Commentator: Stewart Machin for being reliable and informative.

    Owner: Tony Bloom for victories at the Cheltenham Festival to the Cesarewitch and being such a likeable chap in between.
