Sentence : "He is now also in the race of/for golden boot awards."
My question: Which preposition would be correct to use in this sentence ?
*** PS: I often get confuse regarding the use of prepositions in sentences like the above one. For e.g. I used the preposition "of" in the above sentence initially, but I was a bit unsure about its usage. So I decided to do a Google search about it, which suggested preposition "of" is likely to be wrong and preposition "for" should come there instead, if one go by search result. So along with the answer please also tell (trick, method etc) how one should decide/select the right preposition.
Regards and thanks
Just to add, it should read "... for the Golden Boot Award".
