With the devastating outbreak of the equi II virus paralysing racing in most centres in the early part of 1987, the national awards organisers took the, possibly premature, step of announcing that no awards would be handed out for the 1986/87 season. Fortunately, not everyone thought that the year should be written off and with exceptionally consistent performances turned in by many horses, owners, trainers and jockeys, both the South African Racehorse and Winner’s Circle published their own honours roll for the season.
