Chris Deuters Award made

David Redvers awardStud owner and racing and bloodstock manager David Redvers has been chosen to receive the 2017 Racehorse Owners Association’s annual Chris Deuters Award.

He is the tenth recipient of the accolade named in honour of the ROA’s former President Chris Deuters, who sadly died in 2008.

The award, in the form of an alms dish, was presented after the organisation’s Annual General Meeting in London, having been nominated by Chris’s widow Antonia.

David Redvers combines his role of managing Tweenhills Farm & Stud with being one of the country’s most successful bloodstock agents. In recent years he has acted as racing and bloodstock manager for Qatar Racing, Qatar Bloodstock and Pearl Bloodstock.

Antonia Deuters said: “I am delighted that David Redvers is receiving the Chris Deuters Award from the ROA this year. His love of bloodstock is renowned and his achievements in racing are considerable. He hugely merits this award. David also helped Chris buy his horses, whilst Chris gave him support and advice in his early years as an agent.

“This is the tenth time that the Chris Deuters Award has been given. The recipients over the years are a who’s who of racing and I know that Chris would be proud and honoured that they received the award in his name for their invaluable contributions to our sport.”

David Redvers follows in the footsteps of past recipients of the Chris Deuters Award – the late ROA President and Council member Sir Eric Parker (2008), former trainer and tireless charity fund-raiser Jack Berry and his wife Jo (2009), the late ‘Voice of Racing’ Sir Peter O’Sullevan (2010), former Goodwood Racecourse Managing Director Rod Fabricius (2011), former ROA Chief Executive Michael Harris (2012), David and Patricia Thompson of Cheveley Park Stud (2013), racehorse owner JP McManus (2014), racing broadcaster, writer and former jockey Brough Scott MBE (2015) and retired trainer Richard Hannon snr (2016).
