The permanent Sovereign Award trophy
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.

In an effort to promote equal opportunity in determining the winners of the 17 race award categories, the voting closed on January 23, 2018, allowing for statistics for the entire year to be considered.† The finalists and eventual winner are determined using a computerized points system based on each voterís first, second and third choice in each category. The judging for the 2017 media categories will be performed by the Journalism Professors at Humber College, School of Media Studies & Information Technology in Toronto, Ontario, and the finalists will be announced by March 1st.

Below are all the finalists in all the categories. There are three finalists in each category, except where there was a tie. The three finalists for Horse of the Year honours will be announced on the evening of the awards ceremony.
