These inspirational Awards were established in memory of the late Richard Davis who had started planning for his future before his fatal race fall in 1996.

Judged by a panel of independent judges, JETS Trustees and IJF Almoners (in the case of the IJF Progress Award), the Awards highlight what an important role JETS plays in encouraging and helping jockeys develop the skills required for a range of new careers, not only once they have retired but importantly whilst they are still riding. The entries are judged according to the initiative, forethought, effort and determination put into their career development.

AWARD CATEGORIES

The Jockey Club Achievement Award - The top Award designed for those jockeys who have significantly achieved in pursuing their new chosen careers and is worth £3000 to the winner with two runners-up prizes of £500 each.  The winner will also receive hospitality for two as guests of JETS at the races.

The IJF Progress Award - Worth £2,000, this Award rewards the early progress of those jockeys who have more recently started out on a new career/training path or who are actively preparing for their future careers while still riding or while injured.  The winner will also receive hospitality for two as guests of JETS at the races.

The BHA Current Jockey CPD Award - With a prize of £1000, this award was introduced in 2017 for currently licensed jockeys who have shown real commitment to their Continuing Personal Development whilst riding or during injury time out in order to prepare for their future careers and/or to enhance their development as a jockey. The winner will also receive hospitality for two as guests of JETS at the races.
