With COVID-19 preventing the traditional ceremony from taking place, this year's Cartier Awards will be broadcast on Sky Sports Racing from 8 p.m. on Nov. 20.

Laurent Feniou, managing director of Cartier UK, said, “In what has proved to be a year in which so many people have faced exceptional challenges, I am delighted for the Cartier Racing Awards to be broadcast on Sky Sports Racing. Despite the cancellation of our traditional dinner and ceremony at The Dorchester, we are thrilled to have the racing public join us to watch the Cartier Racing Awards presentation this year. Thank you very much to Sky Sports Racing for stepping in and generously offering to broadcast the presentation of the Cartier Racing Awards.”

Rob Dakin, head of racing for Sky Sports Racing, said, “We have always been very happy to give the Cartier Racing Awards significant coverage over the years and stepping in to broadcast the presentation of the awards in 2020 was not a hard decision for us to take. Sky Sports Racing broadcasts many highlights of the Flat season in Europe, headed by Royal Ascot and our exclusive coverage of French racing. With the Cartier Racing Awards celebrating the very best in European Flat racing, it feels like a very natural partnership. I am confident that our innovative broadcast will appeal across the spectrum of racing's stakeholders and it is great to be able to support Cartier's longstanding sponsorship of these prestigious awards.”
