Dubbed the Oscars for European horse racing, the awards ceremony is a calendar highlight for jockeys, owners and racing enthusiasts alike. Notable winners included Ulysses who copped the prize for “Cartier Older Horse” and Harry Angel who received the title of “Cartier Sprinter”.

It was, however, Enable that picked up the most prestigious gong of the evening, “The Cartier Horse of the Year”. The three-year-old British Thoroughbred, ridden by Frankie Dettori, pipped Cracksman, Ribchester and Ulysses to the honour, and was also named “Top Three-Year-Old Filly”.
