Full results including the breakdown of the point and vote totals are available below. No overall points winner was overturned by the voting this year. But there were only three horses who achieved the highest point total and were not the top vote-getter's. Unfortunately for Proud Spell (Three Year Old Female) Benny The Bull (Male Sprinter) and Zenyatta (Horse of the Year) they did not win the voting segment by a large enough margin.
These awards will naturally evolve over time as we learn more about how to assess accomplishments accurately. If you have any suggestions about how to improve this process please drop me a line. Thanks to everyone who supported this project. We look forward to a great year in 2009!
