Ouija Board crowned Horse of the Year again

Ouija Board claimed her place in the record books last night when she became the first horse to win the prestigious Cartier Horse of the Year title for a second time.

The five-year-old mare reclaimed the title that she won in 2004 following a hat trick of Group 1 wins this season. Ed Dunlop successfully produced Ouija Board to win the Prince of Wales’s Stakes, the Vodaphone Nassau Stakes and most recently the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf.

Ouija Board won the Cartier Older Horse award on her way to the overall title and fought off competition from other award-winning horses including George Washington, winner of the three-year-old colt title.

Extremely popular with the public during her career, Ouija Board retires to stud at the end of the year with a record four Cartier awards to her credit.
