The Jockey of the Year award, sponsored by Cotts Equine, went to David Probert.

David has ridden well over a hundred winners in the last year, earning over £1.2m of prize money, and is on course to beat his personal best for the 2019 calendar year.

The Trainer of the Year category, sponsored by Gain Equine Nutrition, was awarded to Evan Williams.

He earned the most prize money, over £660,000, mainly due to the exploits of Silver Streak in the Welsh Champion Hurdle, Champion Hurdle and other top races.

The Owner of the Year sponsored by the ROA went to the Down The Quay Club.

Their star performer Tobefair came back to form this year with a narrow defeat in the Pertemps Final at the Festival, and has won two Cheltenham staying handicaps since then.
