About the Award

The SAROA Owner of the Month is awarded to a member whose horse has won a race in the previous month or has performed a notable feat or where there is a story worthy of sharing with our members. Stories about post racing careers and other equine welfare related stories are welcome. 

The award is more about a good story related to your horse than about a race it won.

For example, it is quite possible that a low rated Ceduna maiden winner or a heart-warming tale of recovery or re-homing could result in winning the prize, rather than  a metropolitan winner.
