The four finalists for the People’s Choice Award, a fan-voted accolade recognising the most compelling 2017 moment in horseracing, were announced by the Dubai Racing Club on Sunday. The award will be presented at the HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Horseracing Excellence Awards ceremony scheduled for the evening of Mar. 29, two nights before the Dubai World Cup card. The finalists are: jockey Christophe Soumillon’s win tally of 306 European victories, breaking the European winners record (300); champion Lady Eli (First Defense)’s amazing comeback from laminitis; Arrogate (Unbridled’s Song)’s last-to first victory in the 2017 G1 Dubai World Cup; and trainer Aidan O’Brien breaking the international record of 25 Group 1 wins in a year with 28 by year’s end.
