Goldikova Going For Gold

Alain and Gerard Wertheimer’s three-time G1 Breeders’ Cup Mile heroine Goldikova (Ire)(Anabaa) was honored as Cartier’s Horse of the Year at a ceremony held Tuesday night at London’s Dorchester Hotel. The homebred five-year-old, who garnered a 12th toplevel success at Churchill Downs Nov. 6, also set another standard by becoming the first dual winner of the older horse award. In the Horse of the Year race, she fended off a stellar line-up of contenders that included G1 Epsom Derby and G1 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe hero Workforce (GB)(King’s Best), who gained the consolation of the winning the three-year-old colt prize at the expense of an equally impressive cast; triple Group 1 hero Canford Cliffs (Ire) (Tagula {Ire}); Harbinger (GB) (Dansili {GB}), who posted a spectacular, record-breaking performance in the G1 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth S. before being forced into retirement through injury; and G1 Eclipse S. and G1 Champion S. victor Twice Over (GB) (Observatory).

Anamoine Limited’s Snow Fairy (Ire) (Intikhab), who claimed both the G1 Epsom and G1 Irish Oaks, as well as last weekend’s G1 Queen Elizabeth II Commemorative Cup in Japan for trainer Ed Dunlop, was announced the champion three-year-old filly. Unbeaten “TDN Rising Star” and leading Classic contender Frankel (GB) (Galileo {Ire}), winner of the G1 Dewhurst S. and G2 Royal Lodge S., took the two-year-old colt award. Trained by Henry Cecil, the bay colt is a Juddmonte homebred, as is Workforce. Michael Tabor, Sue Magnier and Derrick Smith’s Misty For Me (Ire)(Galileo {Ire}) took the top honor for juvenile distaffers. She is trained by Aidan O’Brien, who also fielded champion sprinter Starspangledbanner (Aus) (Choisir {Aus}). The recently retired chestnut embellished his Southern Hemisphere portfolio with victories in the G1 Golden Jubilee S. and the G1 July Cup, and carried off the Champion Sprinter award. Dr. R. Lambe’s Rite of Passage (GB) (Giant’s Causeway), whose one appearance on the flat this year yielded victory in the G1 Gold Cup at Royal Ascot, was named the champion stayer.
