Again it’s the might of Sydney Racing on display with the World’s Best Racehorse Sprinter Nature Strip being crowned NSW Champion Horse of The Year at Racing’s Night of Champions.

In being the Australian Horse of the Year for 2019-20, Nature Strip was also named NSW Sprinter of The Year having won the TJ Smith Stakes, VRC Classic, AJ Moir Stakes and Challenge Stakes.

Ridden all season by three-times George Moore Award campion jockey James McDonald, he is trained by TJ Smith Medal winning Chis Waller, in being NSW Champion Trainer for 10 consecutive seasons.

Also receiving the coveted Bart Cummings Medal, Chris Waller now has the distinction of having two World’s Best Raceshorses with his great mare Winx being co-World Champion two years-ago.

The 6yo chestnut gelding, Nature Strip is by Widden Stud’s top sprinting sire Nicconi, from the Gr3 winning Desert Sun mare Strikeline, also the dam of stakes winner The Barrister.

Originally trained by Darren Weir when passed in for $90,000 at the Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale, he has won 14 races and $5.6m in stakes, being bred by Golden Grove at Denman.

Hosted by the NSW Racehorse Owners Association the Racing’s Night of Champions at Royal Randwick is a short list of finalists voted upon by industry leaders for a final selection.
