Sean crowned champion trainer

Author: admin

Sean was officially named South Africa's Champion Trainer for the 2019-2020 racing season at the Equus Awards ceremony last night.
After being named champion trainer for a fifth time, Sean was quick to pay tribute to the team and owners who had supported him over what has been a turbulent 12 months. He said, "It is hard to believe another season has come and gone. This championshp is a result of a dedicated team at home whose h ard work in the trenches has been crucial to our success.Well done to Luke Ferraris for being named Champion Apprentice- Luke may you go from strength to strength. I must send out a big thank you to all my owners and a special well done to Chris, and the team at Rainbow Beach, for winning owners title for third time. Thank you to MOD, who have helped bring racing to a safe place.
We are awakening to a new dawn and hopefully it is onwards and upwards!"

The Equus Awards, which was a virtual ceremony for a first time, honours all the stars of the South African turf for the past season, and once again paid tribute to SA racing's best performers.

The Tarry yard had an excellent time of it this year, with Sean's stalwart owner Chris Van Niekerk named owner of the year, Luke Ferraris claiming the champion apprentice title, and the yard's star mare Celtic Sea being honoured as South Africa's Champion Older Filly/Mare for 2019-2020.

It is a second year in a row that the Antony and Angela Beck owned bay has won an Equus Award, with Celtic Sea named South Africa's Champion 3YO Filly in 2018-2019.
