Fabulous Royal Ascot shakes up standings for Cartier Racing Awards

Royal Ascot offers a fabulous week of the world’s best Flat racing and the 2013 renewal, which took place from Tuesday, June 18 through to Saturday, June 22, provided some outstanding performances that will live long in the memory.

The victories recorded over the five days have had a significant impact on the leaderboard for the 2013 Cartier Racing Awards.

 

Sky Lantern, trained by Richard Hannon, was very impressive in Friday’s Coronation Stakes, adding that Group One to her Classic victory in the QIPCO 1000 Guineas and now heads the standings for Cartier Horse Of The Year on 100 points.

 

The grey filly is closely pursued by Godolphin’s Dawn Approach (96), who bounced back from his Investec Derby disappointment to land a thrilling St James’s Palace Stakes on the opening day of Royal Ascot after beginning the year with a runaway triumph in the QIPCO 2000 Guineas.

 

Etihad Airways Irish 1,000 Guineas heroine Just The Judge (84), third at Royal Ascot and second in the QIPCO 1000 Guineas, is next followed by Al Kazeem (80), who landed his second consecutive Group One when taking an exciting Prince Of Wales’s Stakes on the Wednesday of Royal Ascot.

 

Sky Lantern and Just The Judge also lead the way in the Cartier Three-Year-Old Filly category, followed by Investec Oaks heroine Talent (48) and Silasol (44), successful in the Group One Pour Moi Coolmore Prix Saint-Alary at Longchamp.

 

Dawn Approach is way out in front in the Cartier Three-Year-Old Colt category, with his closest pursuers all on 56 points – Prix du Jockey Club scorer Intello, Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas winner Magician and Investec Derby hero Ruler Of The World, who runs next in Saturday’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby at the Curragh.

 

Al Kazeem leads the Cartier Older Horse category ahead of Godolphin’s Sajjhaa (75), a dual Group One winner at Meydan, Dubai. Maxios (64), trained in France by Jonathan Pease, is next, having captured the Group One Prix d’Ispahan at Longchamp in May, followed by the Aidan O’Brien-trained St Nicholas Abbey (56), who recorded an unprecedented third victory in the Investec Coronation Cup at Epsom Downs on June 1.

 

The biggest cheer of the week at Royal Ascot was reserved for The Queen’s Estimate, who captured the Gold Cup in game fashion to create history by becoming the first horse owned by the reigning monarch to lift the staying showpiece. The four-year-old filly heads the standings in the Cartier Stayer category on 56 points, ahead of Simenon (24) and Top Trip (20), second and third at Royal Ascot.

 

Royal Ascot is the venue for the first two Group One sprints in Britain and, not surprisingly, the winners feature prominently in the Cartier Sprinter category. Lethal Force (45) landed the six-furlong Diamond Jubilee Stakes on the final day, giving his jockey Adam Kirby a first Group One success, while Irish-trained Sole Power (45) took the King’s Stand Stakes over a furlong shorter on the opening day. Society Rock, second to Lethal Force at Royal Ascot after defeating the same rival in the Group Two Duke Of York Stakes in May, is in third with 40 points.

Harry Herbert, Cartier’s racing consultant, commented: “We were treated to five days of tremendous racing at Royal Ascot and Gold Cup day was particularly memorable for all the right reasons.

 

“The results at Royal Ascot often have a strong bearing on the Cartier Racing Awards, but there is plenty of time between now and November for horses to make an impact.

 

“We now look forward to this weekend’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby, the Coral-Eclipse at SandownPark and Newmarket’s Piper-Heidsieck July Festival.”

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.
