Council also last year initiated a program of national recognition in conjunction with AHRC Members and the Australian Standardbred Breeders Association with an emphasis on Studmasters. This Award to a Western Australian participant reflects the important role and contribution that this Studmaster has made in the Australian Breeding of the Standardbred Herd in that State. Others will follow in the future however George Tiller has been honoured at this time:

Mr & Mrs B McKiernan of Redland Bay, Queensland

Bill & Bev McKiernan have been honoured for their services in fostering through their tireless work the advancement of the Queensland Junior Harness Racing Association, particularly in South Eastern Queensland over a significant period of time.
