Edwardian sterling silver twin handled cup. Made by James Jackson & Son, in Sheffield in 1903.

Awarded For: Awarded for Australian National Champion Pony Hack, over 12.2 hands and not exceeding 14 hands.

Donated By: Donated by Mr Grant R Poolman and first presented in 1980. The Poolman family has been associated with the RES for five generations. AR Poolman belonged to the third generation of the family and played the most significant role, particularly in relation to pony classes at the Show. Samuel Poolman (grandfather of AR Poolman) judged the machinery section at the first Sydney Exhibition (forerunner of the RES). Percy Poolman (father of AR Poolman) regularly exhibited at the RES, particularly the harness section, once winning Champion Harness Horse. Arthur Renwick Poolman (known as Bill) was born in 1910 and died in 1987. He was a member of the Committee for the Australian Pony Stud Book in its formative stages. With his sister, Linda, he operated one of the earliest Australian Pony Studs, the Renalyn Pony Stud, which bred and showed ponies with success for many years. In the late 1940's Mr AR Poolman turned his attention to judging and was Steward with the RAS Horse section for many years. He showed a great diversity of knowledge of horses by judging horses of all sizes, ridden, led and driven at the RES. One of his favourite stories was to tell of the occasion the Judge for the Baker's Cart did not turn up, Mr Poolman immediately volunteered to judge that class as by this time, he had judged every other horse class held in the Main Arena. Mr Poolman's son, Mr Grant Poolman, who has been an honorary Veterinary Surgeon for the RAS for twenty years (1973-1992), donated the trophy. His wife and children have exhibited at the RES.

Awarded For: Awarded for the winning Angus Sires' Progeny.

Donated By: The Andrew Reid Trophy was endowed by Narrangullen Angus Stud in 1939 in memory of Mr Andrew Reid after his death on 4th April 1939. Narrangullen Stud first appeared in the Aberdeen Angus Herd Books of Australia in Volume 5 published in 1934 and Mr Reid had been President of the Angus Society from 1937 to 1939. Originally presented as a quasi-perpetual trophy by Narrangullen Angus Stud in 1961, replaced in 1970, 1974 and 1978 and re-donated as a Perpetual Trophy by Pine Creek Angus Stud P/L who won the trophy outright in 1982. The Cattle Section Committee recommended its acceptance (Nov 1985) in view of its importance to the Angus Breed and despite the original valuation of the silver plate. In 1986 Pine Creek P/L in order to perpetuate the concept of the original donors and to restore the award held in high esteem and respect by Angus members, re-donated the Andrew Reid Trophy for presentation under prior conditions with the added restriction that it could no longer be won outright. Thus the trophy still carries on to convey a part of the Angus breed's early history.

Awarded For: Awarded for Junior Champion Angus Bull.

Donated By: Donated by Kahlua Pastoral Co, Bowral NSW, (the late C Minter) in memory of the late Captain George Thyne Reid. First presented in 1944. Captain George T Reid was killed in action while serving his country in the Second World War. Captain Reid had fought at Tobruk and served with distinction in the Western Desert and other campaigns. He had been elected President of the Angus Society of Australia in 1941 when he succeeded Norman L Forster and although his Army duties prevented him from fulfilling his role as President he was later re-elected to complete his maximum two-year period as President. Mr Cliff Minter of Kahlua Angus Stud, the Vice President, became Acting President during Captain Reid's absence until his term of office ceased in 1943 when Mr Minter was elected as President in his own right. At a meeting of the Angus Society on 29th January 1944 Mr Minter announced the death of Captain GT Reid and referred to the valuable work performed by both Captain Reid and his father Andrew Reid as breeders of Aberdeen Angus, as citizens, and to Captain Reid's service in the Army in the interests of his country. Mr Minter instructed that with Mrs Reid's consent and subject to Council's approval Kahlua Pastoral Company would present a silver cup to be known as the GT Reid Memorial Cup to be awarded each year for the best Aberdeen-Angus Bull under the age of two years.

Awarded For: Awarded for Champion Open Heavyweight Steer.

Donated By: Donated by Kubota Australia and the Consulate General of Japan, Sydney. First presented in 2007. For many years, Japan has represented Australia's largest market for the export of heavyweight steers; the creation of this trophy acknowledges the significance of the trade relationship shared by these two countries and promotes the ongoing friendship between them. The Australia-Japan Friendship Trophy began as an annual trophy in 2006. It was well-received and thus decided that a Perennial Trophy was appropriate. It was decided to commission ceramic artist Paul Davis to create a unique piece. In cooperation with the Consulate-General of Japan, the trophy was supported by Kubota Australia until 2017.
