    I’d like to nominate raymo61 for poster of the year, seems a thoroughly decent chap and picks out some cracking big price winners.

    I haven’t bothered to include categories where my views concur with those already nominated (or those for which I have no opinion/can’t think of anyone)

    Thread of the year: Forum Cliques (some funny stuff on this – and always good to have the odd thread which shines a light on the forum and its users)

    Flat Horse: Laurens

    Riding Performance: Dettori on Stradivarius in the Long Distance Cup (some may say that he shouldn’t have been in that position, or that he was lucky Moore couldn’t stop his horse veering left to give him a chance but I still think most jockeys wouldn’t have gone for that gap)

    One to Watch in 2019: Joseph O’Brien (hardly a new face on the block but I reckon 2019 could be an even bigger year for him)

    Racecourse: Plumpton (might be worth having a “small” course category as it’s a totally different experience to the big meetings)

    Owner: Only ever going to be one winner of this I think but, for the sake of having a list, John Dance

    I am only going to put nominations that haven’t already been mentioned.

    Poster VTC (Bobby) his summing up of big races are a highlight for me!!

    Riding Performance SDS on Ostilio at Royal Ascot a fantastic front running ride from a not very good draw!!

    One To Watch Kieran O’Neill who has had his best year yet winners wise but I think may be on the brink of the bigtime!!

    And Pants I am humbled by your nomination but feel there are far worthier candidates . Thank you for the nom I am touched :good: :good:

    Most of my choices have been mentioned but I will add:

    Thread of the year- the late lamented ATR Stable Stars comp thread.

    Jump jockey- don’t know if he already got nominated in 2016 when he achieved his ambition of 1000 winners but I will nominate Andrew Thornton who retired this year. As a certain sketch show character used to say, what a thoroughly bloody nice bloke.

    Jumps horse- Joint award to Native River and Might Bite for serving us up that gold cup…only a two horse race but had this neutral observer off the sofa and glued to the telly

    I miss the ATR Stable Stars Competition too Green, I’ll make enquiries with the new Sky mob
    before the jumps season starts again next year and see if they will be resurrecting it.
    Considering how popular it was I would think there’s a fair chance they will, even if they
    take a small amount for entering a stable I still think it would still be popular, and they
    would do well out of it I’d imagine. I’ll post an update when I get a reply :good:

    I miss the ATR Thread too Graham :cry: and mostly the banter we all had going on over the horses.
    I certainly wouldn’t mind paying a small entry fee and to keep the Leagues at 20 and locked in to TRF players only would give us half a chance to get into the top 20…look forward to your update :good:

    Things turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...

    Cheers Jac, I’ll post it up when they get back to me, and I think a more restricted league
    (to our members) is the way forward :good:

    Oh- thought of another one

    Hero: Dr Adrian McGoldrick for his continuing research into the mental and physical health of jockeys including long term effects such as osteoporosis. A great man
