Minding has been named the Cartier Horse of the Year at the 26th annual Cartier Racing Awards, European horseracings equivalent of the Oscars. The three-year-old Galileo filly, owned by a Coolmore partnership, trained by Aidan OBrien and ridden by Ryan Moore, was a five-time Group One winner in 2016 with victories, at distances ranging from a mile to a mile and a half, in the QIPCO 1,000 Guineas, Investec Oaks, Sea The Stars Pretty Polly Stakes, Qatar Nassau Stakes and Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (Sponsored by QIPCO).Minding achieved Cartier Racing Awards glory last year too, as she was crowned Cartier Two-Year-Old Filly in 2015 when she enjoyed two Group One victories. Her rivals in the Cartier Horse Of The Year category were Almanzor, Found, Postponed and recent Breeders Cup Turf winner Highland Reel. Minding also takes the honours in the Cartier Three-Year-Old Filly category, ahead of Alice Springs, Quiet Reflection and La Cressonniere.Kevin Buckley, representing Coolmore, collected the award and said: It has been a truly magnificent season for her, a privilege to witness her career on the track and look forward to seeing her again next year and we thank Cartier for this prestigious award.This year a new record was set at the Cartier Racing Awards, with five of the eight equine awards going to horses owned by Coolmore partnerships, consisting in the main of owners Sue Magnier, Derrick Smith and Michael Tabor. All five of these award winners are trained by Aidan OBrien who gains the accolade of Cartier/Daily Telegraph Award of Merit.Even by his own exemplary standards, the Ballydoyle trainer has enjoyed a magnificent 2016, being responsible for 22 winners at Group/Grade One level. During the past quarter century, the 47-year-old has rewritten the record books, enjoying more than 250 Group/Grade One winners on the Flat worldwide.Found, who led home a remarkable 1-2-3 for OBrien and the owners in Europes richest race, last months Qatar Prix de lArc de Triomphe, was named Cartier Older Horse. The other contenders for Cartier Older Horse Award were Postponed, Limato and Highland Reel.Buckley paid tribute to the now retired Galileo filly saying: Found raced 16 times at the highest level during her career of 21 starts and won, or was placed in 13 of them, she was a Group One winner at two, as a three-year-old and as a four-year-old.I guess shell be most remembered in racing history for her emphatic won on that marvellous day at Chantilly this year in the Qatar Prix de lArc de Triomphe when she led home a marvellous 1, 2, 3, for Aidan OBrien and, not forgetting their respective sire, Galileo.I, as a representative, am deeply humbled and honoured to accept this award this evening for such a remarkable filly who has now retired to the Coolmore broodmare band where shes a most welcome addition. Theres plenty of arguments going on about her future mating plans and they are soon to be decided. But we look forward, hopefully, to seeing her progeny race in future years on both sides of the Atlantic.Order Of St George, winner of the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot, was another success for Coolmore and OBrien, with the four-year-old landing the Cartier Stayer Award ahead of Quest For More, Vazirabad and Sheikzayedroad.The fifth award to go to a Coolmore/OBrien horse, in a stellar year, was Cartier Two-Year-Old Colt, won by Churchill. The Galileo colt finished a superb campaign with Group One victories in two of Europes best juvenile contests - the Goffs Vincent OBrien National Stakes and the Dubai Dewhurst Stakes. The other nominees in this category were Caravaggio, The Last Lion and Mehmas. Alamanzor tok the Cartier Three-Year-Old Colt Award. Owned by Ecurie Antonio Caro and Gerard Augustin-Normand, the son of Wootton Basset was superbly handled by Jean-Claude Rouget, who trains in South-West France, to win three Group One contests - the French Classic, the Prix du Jockey Club, the QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes and the QIPCO Champion Stakes. The other Cartier Three-Year-Old Colt nominees were Galileo Gold, Harzand and The Gurkha.Two fillies made history at the 26th Cartier Racing Awards. Firstly, Quiet Reflection became the first three-year-old filly to win the Cartier Sprinter Award. This followed her victories at the highest level in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot and the 32Red Sprint Cup at Haydock Park. Owned by Ontoawinner, Hubert Strecker and Karl and Elaine Buke, the Karl Burke-trained Showcasing filly gains the Cartier Sprinter Award in tight finish ahead of Limato, Meccas Angel and The Tin Man.Lady Aurelia was the other history-maker, as she is the first horse trained in the USA to win a Cartier Racing Award. Following a breathtaking all-the-way win in the Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot and victory in the Darley Prix Morny at Deauville, she captured the Cartier Two-Year-Old Filly Award ahead of Rhododendron, Brave Anna and Roly Poly. Lady Aurelia is owned by Stonestreet Stables, George Bolton and Peter Leidel and trained by Wesley Ward.Harry Herbert, Cartiers Racing Consultant, commented: I would like to extend my congratulations to the Coolmore team on the phenomenal achievement of gaining a record five awards at the 26th annual Cartier Racing Awards.Minding and Found are brilliant fillies, while Order Of St George is a stayer out of the top drawer and Churchills performances bode well for 2017.Aidan OBriens achievements, with Minding, Found, Order of St George and Churchill plus many others in 2016 and during the last 25 years, speak for themselves and this outstanding trainer richly deserves the Cartier/Daily Telegraph Award of Merit.It is thrilling to see the Cartier Two-Year-Old Filly Award go to the American-trained Lady Aurelia, emphasising how international racing has become.The three-year-old filly Quiet Reflection is a worthy winner of the Cartier Sprint Award, while Almanzors dominance at 10 furlongs is testament to superb handling.The Cartier Racing Awards were established in 1991 to reward excellence in European horseracing.

Lawrence and Swiegers achieved a lifelong dream of being Olympians earlier this year when they competed at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. Lawrence and Swiegers are four-time Canadian bronze medalists (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014). In 2010 they won their first international medal, a bronze at Skate Canada International. That same season they also won the bronze medal at the 2011 ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships.

They then went on to place 12th at the 2014 ISU World Figure Skating Championships in Japan.

It was amazing to fulfill our dream of competing at the Olympics and world championships and I have never been happier than I was while skating those programs," said Lawrence. "We have reached a point now where we both want different things and I wish Rudi all the health, happiness,, and continued success in whatever path he follows.dddddddddddd" Lawrence continued, "I would like to say thank you to my coaches Patty Hole and Lyndon Johnston for their unwavering commitment and belief in us, my support team back home for always being there for me, and to all our fans for cheering us on and sharing in this incredible journey. I am so grateful!" Lawrence is looking to find a new partner and continue skating but is keeping an open mind to whatever life may throw her way. "Im so glad to have had the opportunity to skate with Paige and represent Saskatchewan nationally and internationally. One of my greatest joys is that weve been able to succeed and achieve our goals while staying true to our small town roots; proving that you dont need to move away to large centers to train," said Swiegers. "Id like to personally thank Patricia Hole and Lyndon Johnston for everything they have done for me, untold hours on and off the ice. Their dedication to me as a person and an athlete has been paramount in making me the man I am today." Swiegers finished, "I am truly grateful for all the sport has given me. This isnt goodbye for me but rather see you later!" Swiegers is taking a year off from competitive skating for personal reasons.
