The awards' ceremony also features the announcement of the recipient of the Cartier/The Daily Telegraph Award of Merit, which goes to the person or persons who in the opinion of a 15-strong Cartier Jury has done the most for European racing and/or breeding either over their lifetime or within the past 12 months.

European horse racing's top awards are decided in a unique way and give the racing public a big say.

They are delivered through a tried and tested combination of points earned by horses in Pattern races (30%), combined at the end of season with the opinions of a panel of racing journalists/handicappers (35%) and votes from readers of Racing Post and The Daily Telegraph plus ITV Racing viewers (35%).

The 27th annual Cartier Racing Awards are presented at an atmospheric ceremony before an invited audience which includes many top owners, trainers and jockeys at the Dorchester Hotel, London, England, on the evening of Tuesday, November 14, 2017.
