Frankel out to take more glory at Cartier Awards

FRANKEL could etch yet another 'one' against his name later this month after featuring among the five nominees for the Cartier Horse of the Year award.

The unbeaten superstar, who was retired after winning his 14th race on Champions Day last month, has picked up prizes at the past two Cartier Awards being named Two-Year-Old Colt of the Year in 2010 and Three-Year-Old Colt and Horse of the Year in 2011.

His rivals for the title are among those he regularly vanquished including Excelebration, Cirrus Des Aigles and Nathaniel while Camelot makes up the list.

The awards, which takes place at London's Dorchester Hotel on November 13, are determined by points accumulated by performances in pattern races added to the views of journalists and the reader of both the Racing Post and Daily Telegraph.

Australian sprint sensation Black Caviar has also been nominated for an award in the Cartier Sprinter of the Year division as has her compatriot Ortensia.

Between them, the two Australian mares took the Diamond Jubilee Stakes, the Nunthorpe Stakes and the King George Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.

Awards will also be handed out to the winners of the Two-Year-Old Filly, Two-Year-Old Colt, Three-Year-Old Colt, Three-Year-Old Filly, Stayer and Older Horse categories.

Harry Herbert, Cartier's racing consultant, said: "We have enjoyed a vintage year of racing with thrilling performances from horses of different generations over all distances.

"We were especially privileged to witness the wonderful Frankel, who was the Cartier Horse Of The Year in 2011 and is certain to take that accolade again for an unprecedented second successive year."
