VRTA AWARDS (19-20 SEASON)

The Victorian Runners & Trainers (VRTA) awards have traditionally been awarded at the end of season dinner. Unfortunately this year due to COVID19, the dinner was not able to be held.

The committee of the VRTA were still very keen to present the awards to those that performed with distinction in the 2019/20 season. Where possible we will present the trophies to the winners at the Meadowglen meeting for those in attendance. For those not there, we will present them where possible throughout the season.

The awards are separated into two categories. The POINTS awards are calculated throughout the season according to the points table. The VOTED awards are voted on by the VRTA committee and where required the VAL officials to ensure voting integrity.
