European Horse of the Year

The Cartier Racing Awards are awards in European horse racing, founded in 1991, and sponsored by Cartier jewelers. The award winners are decided by points earned in group races plus the votes cast by British racing journalists and readers of the Racing Post and Daily Telegraph newspapers.[1]

Eight horse awards are given out annually plus the Daily Telegraph Award of Merit to the person that members of the Cartier jury believe has done the most for European racing and/or breeding either over their lifetime or within the past 12 months.

The highest Cartier award for horses is "Horse of the Year."

The equivalent in Australia is the Australian Thoroughbred racing awards, in Canada the Sovereign Awards, and in the United States, the Eclipse Awards.

  • Horse names are followed by a suffix indicating the country where foaled.
