The 2017 winner of the Margaret Sexton Trophy, which is awarded for an outstanding contribution to the season at Cartmel, will be decided during the course's close season after a nominee was put forward on every day of competition.
This year's nominees are:-May 27 - James Bowen for his cool handling of Curious Carlos to land his first ever win under Rules
The nominees for this year’s award will be hoping to succeed jockey Henry Brooke, who won the trophy in 2016 for his brilliant ride on Altruism when a mistake forced him to ride from two out without irons and he only just failed to get up an win.
The eventual winner receives a cheque for £500 with a further £250 donated to both St Mary’s Hospice at Ulverston and the British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre in the name of the winner.
