Inside the 28th Cartier Racing Awards at The Dorchester

By Lauren Hill |  November 14 2018


Last night, the 28th edition of Cartier’s annual Racing Awards took place at The Dorchester Hotel in London. Hosted by the managing director of Cartier UK, Laurent Feniou, and Cartier racing consultant, the Hon. Harry Herbert, this illustrious affair saw the best in European horseracing come together to celebrate the top horses and one particular trainer who stood out in 2018.

Trainer John Gosden made his mark this year, with his horses garnering as many as five awards: Roaring Lion was named Cartier Horse of the Year and took the award for Cartier Three-Year-Old Colt, Enable was awarded best Cartier Older Horse, Stradivarius took the award for Cartier Slayer, and Too Darn Hot won the award for Cartier Two-Year-Old Colt.

The award for Cartier Three-Year-Old Filly then went to Alpha Centauri, the award for Cartier Sprinter went to Mabs Cross, and the award for Cartier Two-Year-Old Filly went to Skitter Scatter.

The evening unfolded with a lavish menu of Dorset crab with lemon marmalade, and Hereford beef and truffled celeriac gratin, followed by a chocolate cherry slice dessert. Flowers were curated by John Carter, who brought together royal velvet amaryllis, deep red dahlias, chocolate cosmos and English foliage with their rich velvety Bordeaux reds staying in keeping with the Cartier brand.
