Too Darn Hot Leads Cartier Horse Of The Year Awards

Newly retired Too Darn Hot has soared to the top of the Cartier Horse Of The Year Award Rankings after his superb run of form that saw him win in the Group 1 Prix Jean Prat and Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.

The three time Group 1 winner picked up a career ending injury when winning his final black type race last week, he has now been retired to stud to hopefully produce some outstanding off springs but for the moment currently sits at the top of the standings on 112 points.

He has now overtaken another retired horse in Blue Point who soared to the top of the ranking after his superb double Group 1 winning performances in the King's Stands Stakes and Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot but like Too Darn Hot will not be able to add to his 106 points total after his trainer and connections called time on his career.

Just in behind the Godolphin comes the battle of the middle distance horses with Aidan O'Brien's Magical sat in third spot on 104 points but creeping ever closer after her two Group 1 wins this year is the wonder-mare Enable on 94 points.

Too Darn Hot could, if hanging on to the top spot, become the first horse since the mighty Frankel to win the Cartier Two-Year-Old Colt and Cartier Horse Of The Year in successive years. 

John Gosden's colt will have to wait until the end of the season though with some superb horses in hot pursuit to be the top three year old of the year with the Martyn Meade trained Advertise in rude health this year taking the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup and more recently the Prix Maurice de Gheest this season and sat just in behind Too Darn Hot in second.

Blue Point, although not going to be able to win the big prize this year still holds on to the Cartier Older Horse and Sprinter top spot and it would take some serious performances to take this title away from him.

Hermosa leads the fillies division for Aidan O'Brien on 96 points after her bright start to the season landing the English and Irish 1000 Guineas with her closest rival the Epsom Oaks winner Anapurna on 48.

John Gosden leads the stayers division again with the ever consistent Stradivarius (96 points) who landed his third Goodwood Cup in succession last time out and holds a commanding lead over next best in the standings Dee Ex Bee who sits on 56 points.

Stradivarius is just one race away from landing the his second Weatherbys Stayers' Million Bonus after he has yet again gone unbeaten for another season.
