Skip Achuff passed away on August 28, 2022. He had many talents but was first and foremost a horseman. The Achuff family has created the Stalwart of Steeplechase award to honor Skip Achuff’s contributions to the sport of steeplechase racing.

Nominees for the award represent the sport of steeplechase with professionalism, integrity, and dedication; uphold the rules of the sport; and prioritize the safety of horses and jockeys. The winner receives a one-time cash prize of $1,000.

Potential recipients are nominated by their peers for performance in 2023. Petitioners for nominees must complete an application and submit it by February 28, 2024. The Achuff family will select from the nominees in March. The winner will be announced and awarded at the Radnor Hunt Races on May 18, 2024.
