Colleen Breen Memorial Trophy

Best Filly or Mare

Ross Stanbury Junior Driver of the Year

BPTC Trainer of the Year

BPTC Driver of the Year

With just one race day remaining this season, it would seem that Blair Orange has the Driver of the Year wrapped, being 39 points ahead of his nearest rival.  Greg and Nina Hope have an 8 point lead for the Trainer of the Year, but there are just 3 points separating the top 3 Junior Drivers, with Ben Hope having a narrow lead.  Two mares are tied for Filly/Mare of the Year, but realistically about 30 have the chance of taking it out.

Points will be awarded as follows:

1st – 5 points; 2nd - 3 points; 3rd – 2 points; 4th – 1 point

In the event of a tie in any of the competitions, the winner will be decided firstly, on the most 1st place points, if still a tie, the most 2nd place points, if still a tie, the most 3rd place points
