The superstar State Of Rest For Joseph O'Brien has seen himself propelled to the the top of the Cartier Horse Of The Year Awards after a superb, gritty performance in the Group One Prince Of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot.
The four year old is now a Group One winner in Australia, America, France and now England after Shane Crosse gave the star a superb ride from the front to see off the talented Bay Bridge, Lord North and the smart Japanese talent Shahryar.
With that success he came the new leader in the Horse Of The Year category with 88 point, with the unbeaten Baaeed not far behind him with 80 points following his facile success in the Queen Anne Stakes.
Also joint on 80 points is the 2000 Guineas and St James's Palace winner Coroebus who went to the top of the Three-Year-Old Colt category after his narrow besting of Lusail, My Prospero and Maljoom.
The sprinters division this season is being dominated by the Australian superstar Nature Strip who was an emphatic winner of the Group One King's Stand Stakes, but right alongside him is Perfect Power who landed the Commonwealth Cup and Naval Crown who took the Platinum Jubilee Stakes.
Finally the Stayers division sees Gold Cup winner Kyprios sitting pretty at the top after his narrow defeat in the Group One feature at Royal Ascot taking him to 56 points, with Stradivarius way behind on 28.
