The nominations for this year’s Cartier Racing Awards, European horseracing’s equivalent of The Oscars, have been announced. The highly-coveted Awards will be presented during a glittering ceremony before an invited audience at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on the evening of Monday, 17th November.

The Cartier Racing Awards are now in their 18th year and celebrate the champions of the Turf, plus one person who will receive the Cartier/Daily Telegraph Award Of Merit. The eight horse awards are determined by points earned in Pattern races (40%) combined with the opinions of a panel of racing journalists chaired by Brough Scott (40%) plus votes from readers of the Racing Post and The Daily Telegraph (20%), a system which accurately rewards supreme excellence.

The nominations in alphabetical order for this year’s Cartier Horse of the Year Award are as follows:


Duke Of Marmalade


New Approach

Raven’s Pass


Of interest to Summerhill is that YEATS (brother to resident stallion SOLSKJAER), has been nominated in two categories, namely Cartier Stayer and Cartier Older Horse.
