Strapper's Awards


Since May 2014, The Victorian Wakeful Club began targeting Country Cup meetings to award a Strapper with a cash prize for the best presented horse.  The Strapper must also be well presented. The Victorian Wakeful Club recognizes and understand the amount of work and effort that is required and that it starts long before race day to get a thoroughbred to the track. From Manangatang to Stony Creek and Warrnambool to Mansfield our Members volunteer their time to attend, judge and present the Strapper with his/her award.

In the 2015/2016 racing season The Victorian Wakeful Club has been able to award a total of 25 Strapper's prizes across the state of Victoria.   2016/2017 saw a further 24 Strapper's Prizes awarded.
