Race for 2013 Cartier Racing Awards Underway
06/06/13

Sajjhaa leads the way in the first standings issued for the 2013 Cartier Racing Awards after recording four victories from five stars this year. All of the six-year-old's successes came at Meydan, Dubai, where she captured a pair of Group Two contests, plus the Group One Jebel Hatta sponsored by Emirates Airline and the Group One Dubai Duty Free on World Cup Night, March 30.

Just The Judge

The Saeed bin Suroor-trained mare was fourth in the Group One Audemars Piguet QEII Cup at Sha Tin on her latest outing in April and her total of 75 points is enough to top both the Cartier Horse Of The Year and Cartier Older Horse Award at this early stage.

Etihad Airways Irish 1,000 Guineas heroine Just The Judge, who was narrowly denied in the Newmarket equivalent of the Classic, is close up on 72 points in the Cartier Horse Of The Year standings with recent Group One Prix d'Ispahan scorer Maxios (64), trained by Jonathan Pease in France, next.

In the Cartier Old Horse category St Nicholas Abbey (56) has been in fine form for trainer Aidan O'Brien this season, annexing the Dubai Sheema Classic Presented By Longines and an unprecedented third consecutive Investec Coronation Cup at Epsom Downs on Saturday.

Al Kazeem, Farhh and Pastorius, all Group One winners this season, are joined on 32 points by David Smaga's Group Two winner Don Bosco.

Ruler Of The World
O'Brien is also responsible for Investec Derby hero Ruler Of The World and Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas victor Magician, who are disputing the lead on 56 points with Intello for the Cartier Three-Year-Old Colt Award. Intello, trained by French champion Andre Fabre, atoned for an unlucky defeat in the French 2,000 Guineas with an impressive two-length triumph in the Prix du Jockey-Club at Chantilly on June 2.

The trio are closely followed by last season's Cartier Two-Year-Old Colt Dawn Approach (48), who was a magnificent winner of the QIPCO 2000 Guineas on his return but disappointed when the hot favourite for the Investec Derby on Saturday, trailing home last after failing to settle.

Just The Judge, trained by Charlie Hills,has opened up a clear lead over her peers in the race for the Cartier Three-Year-Old Filly Award. Her Newmarket conqueror Sky Lantern is next best on 52 points with shock Investec Oaks winner Talent and Group One Pour Moi Coolmore Prix Saint-Alary scorer Silasol on 48 and 36 points respectively.

Domeside (18), who landed the Group Two Prix Vicomtesse Vigier at Longchamp on May 26, tops the Cartier Stayer Award ahead of Group Two QIPCO Yorkshire Cup winner Glen's Diamond (16) and Khalid Abdullah's Last Train (12).

Dual Group One scorer Kingsgate Native (20) has been rejuvenated by trainer Robert Cowell and recorded a neck verdict over Swiss Spirit in the Group Two Betfred Temple Stakes at Haydock on May 25. The eight-year-old has a narrow lead for the Cartier Sprinter Award over the lightly-raced Catcall, Group Two Duke Of York Clipper Logistics Stakes victor Society Rock and Spirit Quartz, who are all on 16 points.

 

About the Cartier Racing Awards:

The Cartier Racing Awards were established in 1991 to reward excellence in horseracing. They are determined by points earned by horses in Pattern races throughout 2013, combined at the end of season with the opinions of a panel of racing journalists and votes from readers of the Racing Post and The Daily Telegraph.

In addition to eight equine awards, the Cartier/Daily Telegraph Award of Merit goes to the person or persons who, in the opinion of the special Cartier Jury, has/have done the most for European racing and/or breeding either over their lifetime or within the past 12 months.

The awards will be presented during a glittering ceremony before an invited audience at London's Dorchester Hotel on Tuesday, November 12.
