Online voting is now open for the eighth annual winner of the Secretariat Vox Populi Award. Among this year’s nominees is the late Maryland-bred Horse of the Year Ben’s Cat.

Created by Secretariat’s late owner Penny Chenery, the Vox Populi, or “Voice of the People,” Award recognizes the racehorse whose popularity and racing excellence best resounded with the public and gained recognition for the sport during the past year.

Fans can vote in the online poll here . The poll is open through Dec. 12, and a public presentation to the 2017 Vox Populi winner is scheduled for Jan. 20, 2018, at Santa Anita Park.
