Eight equine awards will be presented, headed by Cartier Horse of the Year, as well as the Cartier/Daily Telegraph Award of Merit, which goes to the person or persons who, in the opinion of the 17-person Cartier Jury, has done the most for European racing and/or breeding either over their lifetime or within the last year.
The Cartier awards are determined through a combination of points earned by horses in pattern races throughout the year (40%), opinions of racing journalists (30%) and votes from readers of Racing Post and The Daily Telegraph plus Channel 4 Racing viewers (30%).
