The Equus Awards are dubbed Horseracings ‘Oscars’ and acknowledge excellence in a variety of equine and human categories.

Legal Eagle, the Avontuur bred Greys Inn gelding was a popular choice as Horse Of The Year for the second consecutive season. The Sean Tarry trained 6yo gelding achieved back-to-back wins in the Gr1 L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate and Gr1 HF Oppenheimer Horse Chestnut Stakes. He also won the Gr2 Green Point Stakes and ran second in the Gr1 Sun Met and Gr1 Premier’s Champions Challenge. He also clinched the awards of Champion Miler and Champion Older Male.

      Legal eagle and whisky baron should win the July to claim the title. They are not champion classic horses.poor decision.

      1. perd says:

        disagree with you mr cohen many champion horses never won july or raced wolf power, jetmaster, horse chestnut . elevation, home guard, many horses that won the july that i dont regard as champions it was just their day of fame ,jamaican rumba, dunford .big charles, devon air we can go on and on a champion horse is the one who gives weight and still wins or placed in group one races like sea cottage. william penn. java. to name a few
