Frankel named horse of the yearHeadlines
Frankel

Frankel has been named Cartier Horse Of The Year for the second time at an awards ceremony in London.

Having won the award last year, Frankel joins Ouija Board on the list of dual winners. Ed Dunlop's mare took the accolade in 2004 and 2006.

Owned and bred by Prince Khalid Abdullah, Frankel is now standing at the Prince's Banstead Manor stud in Newmarket and was trained throughout his unbeaten 14-race career by Sir Henry Cecil.

The handler, who was not well enough to attend Tuesday night's ceremony, said: "All of us at Warren Place are thrilled that Frankel's achievements this year have been recognised with him winning this most prestigious award for the second time running.

"Frankel with his brilliance has been a great ambassador for British racing and has captured the hearts of so many people, some of whom have never been racing in their lives. Thank you Frankel and to everyone that has voted for him."

The Cartier/Daily Telegraph Award of Merit went to Team Frankel. This award goes to those who have done most throughout their lifetime or the past 12 months to promote European racing and/or breeding.

Black Caviar took the Cartier sprinter award, Camelot won the three-year-old category, The Fugue was crowned the best three-year-old filly, while Dawn Approach was crowned two-year-old champion colt and Certify the best juvenile filly. Ascot Gold Cup winner Colour Vision won the stayers category.

Harry Herbert, Cartier's racing consultant, said: "Frankel lit up all our lives with his magnificent performances in 2012 and during the previous two years. He is the most successful horse in the 22-year history of the Cartier Awards and that is no surprise given his domination of so many races.

"Sir Henry Cecil thinks there has never been a better racehorse and tonight we celebrate Frankel's achievements and those of the team behind him."
