Just that in his column today, Lee Mottershead has pointed out (the "elephant in the room" as he describes it), that the 18 finalists of the Godolphin and Stable Staff Awards "all share the same skin colour".

(Having seen their fotas, I can confirm they're all white).

Chairman of the judges Brough Scott has acknowledged that "this does not look good" and cites the problem being that they "can only judge the people who are nominated".

No people from ethnic minorities were nominated then, Brough? BlushShocked

Looking down the list of previous winners


Clifford Baker
Stuart Messenger
Jock Bennett
Terry Doherty (stud manager for Watership Down)
Leanne Masterton

Not saying they weren't worthy winners, but they're household names in racing circles!

Large % of assistant trainers / head lads or girls winning

We can see who gets nominated!

There are lots of Asian grooms these days. No idea of the percentage.

Will this bandwagon ever end? even the minorities must be getting sick of the constant drivel from slurping whiteys

They are White people who make a point of using their platform to show biased consideration for those who aren't white,able and hetrosexual.

* Actually, two stud managers have won the 'Employee of the Year' award

And of the other 12 winners since 2005, 10 were either assistant managers or had "head" in their job titles. So is the issue that staff from ethnic minorities are short of promotion opportunities?
