Al Kazeem continues to lead Cartier Horse Of The Year standings

Al Kazeem (148) continues to lead on points the race for the Cartier Horse Of The Year Award and Cartier Older Horse Award despite defeats in the Juddmonte International at York in August and the Red Mills Irish Champion Stakes on September 7.

 

Roger Charlton’s five-year-old completed a memorable Group One hat-trick in the Coral-Eclipse at Sandown in July, but found the ground too fast when third on the Knavesmire and had no answers to a brilliant performance from The Fugue (92) at Leopardstown on September 7 when second. Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby hero Trading Leather also contested both races, finishing second and third respectively, and has moved into second on 128 points.

 

Lethal Force (120), winner of both the Diamond Jubilee Stakes and the Darley July Cup, failed to fire when ninth in the Group One Betfred Sprint Cup at Haydock on September 7 on softish going, but remains on the heel of the leaders along with QIPCO 1000 Guineas and Coronation Stakes heroine Sky Lantern (116).

 

Declaration Of War (108) is third in the Cartier Older Horse category, while recent Longines Preis Von Baden scorer Novellist, unbeaten this year, and Sunday’s Qatar Prix du Moulin de Longchamp victor Maxios are on 98 and 96 points respectively. Last year’s Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe second, Orfevre (32), trained in Japan by Yasutoshi Ikee, earned his first points this year with an impressive victory in the Qatar Prix Foy at Longchamp on September 15.

 

Irish handler Jim Bolger has a stranglehold at the moment on the Cartier Three-Year-Old Colt Award with Trading Leather holding a narrow verdict over last year’s Cartier Two-Year-Old Colt Dawn Approach (112), who was last seen finishing fifth in the Prix du Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard – Jacques le Marois at Deauville on August 11. Prix du Jockey Club winner Intello and QIPCO Sussex Stakes scorer Toronado are next on 72 and 70 points respectively.

 

Sky Lantern tops the Cartier Three-Year-Old Filly category from Etihad Airways Irish 1000 Guineas winner Just The Judge (84) and Investec Oaks scorer Talent (72), who returned to form when chasing home Leading Light (60) in the Ladbrokes St Leger at Doncaster on September 14. Ralph Beckett’s three-year-old had previously trailed home last of seven behind Chicquita (64) in the Darley Irish Oaks at the Curragh in July.

 

Unbeaten Treve, trained by Criquette Head-Maarek, is also on 64 points after following up her Prix de Diane Longines success in June with an equally impressive performance in the Group One Qatar Prix Vermeille at Longchamp on September 15.

 

Gold Cup heroine Estimate (56) leads the race for the Cartier Stayer Award, despite not running since that famous success at Royal Ascot in June. Weatherbys Hamilton Insurance Lonsdale Cup victor Ahzeemah heads the chasing pack on 42 points after coming home second in the GAIN Irish St Leger, while Lethal Force holds a commanding lead over Society Rock (64) and Sole Power (53) for the Cartier Sprint Award.

 

The Richard Hannon-trained Toormore has moved into contention for the Cartier Two-Year-Old Colt Award after a front-running success over Sudirman (88) in the Group One Vincent O’Brien National Stakes at the Curragh on September 15. The son of Arakan is joined on 64 points by unbeaten US colt No Nay Never, who is unlikely to run again this year.

 

Rizeena (84) has established a clear lead in the race for the Cartier Two-Year-Old Filly Award after an impressive display in the Group One Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh on September 1. The Clive Brittain-trained daughter of Ifraaj is well ahead of Group Two winners Tapestry and Vorda, who are both on 40 points.

 

Harry Herbert, Cartier’s Racing Consultant, commented: “The top four on points for the Cartier Horse Of The Year Award have all met defeat on their last two starts and so there is plenty of scope for horses such as Novellist, Treve and Orfevre to further enhance their reputations.

 

“Therefore, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe on October 6 could be particularly important in helping to decide the Cartier Horse Of The Year winner this year.

 

“There are lots more races at the highest level to be run, which means drama and excitement to come as far as the Cartier Racing Awards are concerned.”

About the Cartier Racing Awards

 

The Cartier Racing Awards were established in 1991 to reward excellence and are the Oscars of European 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 the 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 of 300 at London’s Dorchester Hotel on the evening of Tuesday, November 12.
