2020 Cartier Racing Awards

Public voting now open for 2020 Cartier Racing Awards     Voting is now open for the 2020 Cartier Racing Awards via     Forms for those wishing to vote by post will also be available in the coming days in the Daily Telegraph and Racing Post.    As well as having a direct influence on who will come out on top at the Cartier Racing Awards, one lucky voter will also be handed a special prize courtesy of Cartier.   Laurent Feniou, Managing Director of Cartier UK, commented “It has been an incredible sporting season, albeit an unusual one in light of the new regulation the racing world has adapted to. I am truly inspired by these displays of resilience, capturing the true essence and spirit of the sport.”   Harry Herbert, Cartier’s Racing Consultant, added: “In spite of the obvious challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 European Flat season has presented us with many memorable moments.   “The Cartier Racing Awards present a unique opportunity for the public to be involved in determining the champions of 2020 in a meaningful way and I urge everyone to vote for their best horses of 2020 via or the forms in the Daily Telegraph ad Racing Post.   “This year will be the 30th time the Cartier Racing Awards have been presented and I would like to thank Cartier for its generous and ongoing support, not least in today’s challenging circumstances.”   The Cartier Racing Awards were established in 1991 to reward excellence in horseracing. There are eight equine awards – the Cartier Horse Of The Year, the Cartier Older Horse, the Cartier Sprinter, the Cartier Stayer, the Cartier Three-Year-Old Colt, the Cartier Three-Year-Old Filly, the Cartier Two-Year-Old Colt and the Cartier Two-Year-Old Filly.
European horseracing’s top awards are delivered through a tried and tested combination of points earned by horses in Pattern races (30%), combined at the end of season with the opinions of a panel of racing journalists/handicappers (35%) and votes from readers of Racing Post and The Daily Telegraph (35%). The participation of the public plays a crucial role in determining the winners of each year’s Cartier Racing Awards and gives horseracing fans the chance to put forward their favourite horses in a meaningful way.
In addition to the equine awards, the Cartier/Daily Telegraph Award of Merit goes to the person or persons who, in the opinion of the special 16-strong Cartier Jury, has/have done the most for European racing and/or breeding either over their lifetime or within the past 12 months. The 10 most recent recipients have been Pat Smullen, David Oldrey, Sir Michael Stoute, Aidan O’Brien, Jack Berry, Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Jim Bolger, Team Frankel, Barry Hills and Richard Hannon Sr.
The 30th annual Cartier Racing Awards will be awarded in November. Cartier continues its ongoing support with the presentation of Cartier Racing Awards in 2020, despite the cancellation of the traditional awards ceremony at The Dorchester in London, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Cartier looks forward to resuming the awards ceremony in 2021.   There is no substantial change in the latest standings for the 2020 Cartier Racing Awards, with Magical (120) and the now-retired Ghaiyyath (118) almost neck and neck in the standings for Cartier Horse of the Year.    The final G1 contest of 2020 in the UK was the Vertem Futurity Trophy at Doncaster on October 24, which went to Mac Swiney (48), homebred by his trainer Jim Bolger. Mac Swiney now lies joint-second in the standings for Cartier Two-Year-Old Colt.
