Enable has been named the Cartier Horse of the Year, becoming just the third horse to be awarded the title on two occasions, while former jockey Pat Smullen scooped the Cartier/Daily Telegraph Award of Merit.

The John Gosden-trained Enable, who was first crowned champion in 2017, follows Ouija Board (2004 and 2006) and Frankel (2011 and 2012) as a dual winner of the prize following another exceptional campaign.

While she was beaten into second in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe on her final start this year, Enable won the Eclipse, King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes and Yorkshire Oaks, to take home not just the Horse of the Year accolade, but also the award for 2019 Older Horse.

Enable, who stays in training in 2020, also ensured Gosden landed the Horse of the Year Award for the fifth time in the last six years, with Kingman (2014), Golden Horn (2015) and Roaring Lion (2018) also obliging.

The 29th annual awards also saw Gosden and jockey Frankie Dettori gain honours with Too Darn Hot in the Three-Year-Old Colt division, Star Catcher in the Three-Year-Old Filly category and Stradivarius in the Stayer prize.

Stradivarius was winning his award for the second successive year after another campaign that saw him land a £1million bonus by winning the Yorkshire Cup, Gold Cup at Royal Ascot, Goodwood Cup and Lonsdale Cup at York.

Sheikh Mohammed's Godolphin operation landed two awards, with Blue Point taking the sprint prize and Pinatubo in the Two-Year-Old Colt category.

A son of Shamardal, Pinatubo ended the campaign unbeaten in six starts and boasting a rating of 128.

Enable's owner-breeder Khalid Abdullah gained a third title this year courtesy of the unbeaten Quadrilateral, who was named leading Two-Year-Old Filly.

The Cartier/Daily Telegraph Award of Merit went to Smullen, who was forced to retire in May on medical advice.

The nine-times Irish champion Flat jockey was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2018 and has thrown all his efforts into helping others who face the same condition.

His fund-raising drive has resulted in over €2.5million being raised for Cancer Trials Ireland and culminated at the Curragh in September with the Pat Smullen Champions Race For Cancer Trials Ireland, which saw the likes of Anthony McCoy and Ruby Walsh return to the saddle.
