Following his passing in 2022, Skip Achuff's family created the Stalwart of Steeplechase Award to recognize those who epitomize the qualities Skip brought to the sport.

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.

On behalf of the Achuff family, Radnor Hunt Races is proud to announce V. Brooke Boyer of Colora, Md, as the first recipient of the inaugural Stalwart of Steeplechase Award.


OVER THE years, Brooke has assisted at several steeplechase racecourses including The Pennsylvania Hunt Cup, Willowdale, Cheshire Point-to-Point, Mt. Harmon Point-to-Point, and Fair Hill, always with high concern for the safety of horses, jockey, and spectators.

For those events, he performs a variety of tasks from flagging the course to serving as a patrol judge, to sourcing stewards and much more—all as a volunteer.

Recently, for Radnor, Brooke played an integral part in identifying the new Race Director, James Slater, and has been committed to helping James assume the responsibilities of his new role.

Brooke was nominated for the award by Janet Elliot.

We congratulate Brooke and thank him for his contribution to the sport of steeplechase.
