Cartier Racing Awards – Your Chance To Vote

Public have their say in the selections

Five-time Gr1 winner Palace Pier has established a narrow lead in the Cartier Horse of the Year points standings in spite of his neck defeat by Baaeed in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (sponsored by QIPCO).

The 31st annual Cartier Racing Awards will be awarded on Wednesday November 10th at the Dorchester Hotel to mark a brilliant year of action on the track.

Voting is also now open for the 2021 Cartier Racing Awards via www.cartierracingawards.co.uk.

Voters will have a direct influence on the outcome of who comes out on top at the Cartier Racing Awards.

Discussing the voting process, Cartier’s Racing Consultant Harry Herbert said: “It’s been a fabulous season of racing and how exciting to see the various categories with such tight margins. The votes from The Daily Telegraph and Racing Post readers will as always be crucial in deciding this year’s champions.”

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. The public vote starts today at noon and ends on Tuesday, November 2 at Noon.

Trained by John and Thady Gosden, Palace Pier has 168 points following his first reversal of the season as Baaeed (88) secured a sixth straight win in one of the centrepieces of a thrilling QIPCO British Champions Day at Ascot on October 16.

Palace Pier – what a season!

Palace Pier heads fellow five-time Gr1 hero St Mark’s Basilica (160) and dual G1 scorer Poetic Flare (156) who have both recently been retired to take up stallion duties in Ireland and Japan respectively.

The four-year-old is also the clear leader in the Cartier Older Horse category ahead of stable companion Mishriff (108), who could only finish fourth in the QIPCO Champion Stakes, and Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe hero Torquator Tasso (96).

Baaeed has been one of the success stories of the season for Shadwell, William Haggas and Jim Crowley, and the dual Gr1 scorer has 88 points ahead of Lady Bowthorpe (84), who was third in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (sponsored by QIPCO)

St Mark’s Basilica (160) and Poetic Flare (156) continue to lead proceedings in the Cartier Three-Year-Old Colt category ahead of Godolphin’s Hurricane Lane (152 points) and stablemate Adayar (100), who was fifth in the QIPCO Champion Stakes.

Aidan O’Brien retains a strong hand in the Cartier Three-Year-Old Filly category with Mother Earth and Snowfall both on 144 points. Mother Earth finished a creditable fifth to Baaeed at Ascot, whilst Snowfall suffered a shock defeat to Eshaada (40) in the G1 QIPCO British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes.

Starman remains the pacesetter in the Cartier Sprinter category on 64 points ahead of Gr1 Qatar Prix de l’Abbaye scorer A Case Of You (58) and Dragon Symbol (56), who finished down the field behind Godolphin’s Creative Force (32) in the Gr1 QIPCO British Champions Sprint.

Trueshan, pictured above, continues to stamp his authority on the Cartier Stayer award for Alan King.

The five-year-old backed up victories in the Gr1 Qatar Goodwood Cup and Gr1 Qatar Prix du Cadran at ParisLongchamp with a gutsy success in the Gr2 QIPCO British Champions Long Distance Cup, a contest which saw old rival Stradivarius (60) finish third.

Dual Gr1 scorers Native Trail and Perfect Power set the pace in the Cartier Two-Year-Old Colt category with 80 points, while G1 bet365 Fillies’ Mile heroine Inspiral leads the Cartier Two-Year-Old Filly standings with 48 points.
