The shortlists for the 2021 Godolphin Stud & Stable Staff Awards were revealed by the British Horseracing Authority on Wednesday.

Having received a total of 206 nominations from across the racing and breeding industries, that number has been whittled down to 60 individuals ahead of the next round of judging.

In light of the ongoing impact of Covid-19, the entirety of the judging process is likely to be conducted remotely and the panel will now agree on a list of three finalists for each of the six categories. The finalists will be announced in the new year.
