Champs Elysees was Champion Turf Male and Horse of the Year in 2009.
The Jockey Club of Canada has announced the finalists for the 2010 Sovereign Awards, Canadian thoroughbred racing's year end championships. Winners will be announced at the 36th Annual Sovereign Awards ceremonies on Friday, April 1, 2011, on the third floor of Woodbine Race Track in Toronto.
The Jockey Club of Canada was founded in 1973 by E.P.Taylor to serve as an international representative of Canada's Thoroughbred sport and to promote improvements to Thoroughbred horse racing and breeding both in Canada and internationally. To that end the Jockey Club of Canada organizes and hosts the annual Sovereign Awards to honour outstanding achievements in all areas of Thoroughbred sport - from media coverage to Horse of the Year.
Below are all the finalists in all the categories. This year Terence and I were fortunate enough to both be finalists in the photography category. I have included a link to both our photos as well as the one by the other finalist, Tod Marks. Where I was able to find them, I included links to the articles nominated for awards as well.
