The winners of the six accolades all donated all or a proportion of their prize money to the NHS charity.
Andrew Bickerdike, fundraising manager at SASH, said: “We are hugely grateful to all the various All-Weather Champions, and to Arena Racing Company, for this incredible show of support for our local hospital staff at this busy time.
“It is very much appreciated by all of us here at SASH Charity and Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust. As a local hospital charity, the support of the racing community, and organisations and individuals of national and international standing is something we are very grateful for. Thank you from all of us.”
Hugh Anderson, Godolphin Managing Director (UK and Dubai), said: “We are very pleased to be crowned All-Weather Champion Owner for a sixth time. Full credit must go to the whole team, who have all played a part in another successful season.
“In light of the current situation, it seemed entirely appropriate that we donate our prize to those who are working tirelessly to help the country.”
