Enable and Quadrilateral honoured with Cartier Awards
Enable (pictured) became just the third horse to be named Horse of the Year for a second time at the Cartier Awards in London last night (12th November). At the same event, Frankel homebred two-year-old Quadrilateral was named Cartier Two-Year-Old Filly.

Enable was first given the award in 2017 and joins Frankel and Ouija Board in becoming a dual winner. Set to return to the racecourse in 2020, Enable was also named Older Horse of the Year for the second year running. The first European mare to exceed career earnings of £10 million, she has been beaten only twice in 15 starts, most recently when finishing second to Waldgeist when attempting to win the Gr.1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe for a record third time.
"Bountiful talent combined with a courageous running style make her a joy to watch and it is no wonder that Enable is so popular with everyone in racing," said Cartier's racing consultant Harry Herbert. "It is exciting that Prince Khalid Abdullah is keeping her in training for 2020, when she could become the first three-time winner of the Cartier Horse of the Year."
The final equine category of the awards ceremony went to another Juddmonte homebred, with the Roger Charlton-trained Quadrilateral (Frankel) being named Cartier Two-Year-Old Filly following her victory in the Gr.1 Fillies' Mile at Newmarket.
"As well as his established superstar Enable, Prince Khalid Abdullah also has unbeaten two-year-old filly Quadrilateral to look forward to in 2020," Herbert added.
