Cartier Horse Of The Year Round Up

Cartier Awards

Last night saw the Cartier horse of the year awards with the best horses throughout the flat season getting the recognition they deserved and we have rounded up all the action from last night's ceremony at at the Dorchester Hotel in London.

With nine awards up for grabs on the night all the sports high profile figures were in attendance fo the 29th Cartier Awards that saw some popular crownings throughout the evening.

The star of the night as ever was the mighty Enable who managed to pick up two awards but most importantly her second Cartier horse of the year title matching Frankel who also landed the prize twice in his superb career.

Enable also took the award for older horse of the year that saw a great night for superstar trainer John Gosden who landed five awards on the night with his horses.

Enable will stay in training for a another season after the announcement from her owner Prince Khalid Abdullah and the mare will be looking to try and add to her five Cartier Awards in her career.

The five year old became only the third horse in the history of the awards to land two Cartier horse of the year titles alongside Frankel and Aidan O'Brien's Ouija Board.

As said before Gosden cleaned up at last nights ceremony with Too Darn Hot (Three-Year-Old Colt), Star Catcher (Three-Year-Old Filly) and Stradivarius (Stayer) successful alongside Enable.

Godolphin were also very pleased with how the night unfolded landing two of the other three awards available for their horses with the star sprinter Blue Point taking the Sprinters title after his double at Royal Ascot in the same week, retaining the King's Stands Stakes and then a few days later taking the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.

The rising star of the flat Pinatubo took the two-Year-Old Colt of the year after being unbeaten in all six of his races throughout the season landing back to back Group Ones and getting a rating higher than the mighty Frankel was as a juvenile.

The last award taken by a horse was given to the Roger Charlton trained Quadrilateral who was crowned Two-Year-Old Filly of the year adding another award for owner Prince Abdullah.

The final award of the night Cartier/Daily Telegraph Award Of Merit and rightfully so was given to Pat Smullen for his time in the saddle but also the work he has done off the track with fundraising of over €2.5 million for Cancer remission whilst he still battles with his illness.
