Special award nominations have been finalized! Trainers are required to check their horse’s nominations and report any issues before Monday, October 2nd. Please read the brief newsletter below for more information on special awards, party tickets, and the final 2023 Makeover webinar.
Special Award Nominations
Our staff has finished the process of identifying the horses eligible for the special awards offered to competing 2023 Makeover horses. Eligibility criteria for special awards are determined by the sponsors of each award. The identification of eligible nominees is often reliant on Makeover trainers accurately reporting the relevant information on the horse registration.
Please visit your horse’s profile on the entries list to see which special awards your horse has been nominated for. The special award nominations are shown in the “Makeover Details” box on each horse’s public entry profile. If you don’t have a special award section in that box, your horse has not been nominated for any special awards. Reminder that horses entered in the Broodmare division are not eligible for special awards.
If you believe there has been a mistake with your horse’s special award nominations, you must report the error using the Special Award Inquiry form by 5pm EDT on Monday, October 2nd. Trainers are responsible for ensuring their horse has been nominated for any relevant special awards, and using the form to report any errors, by that date. We will not be accepting inquiries or making changes to a horse’s special award nominations after October 2nd.
