2018 was a year full of dramatic performances. From Justify taking home the 2nd triple crown in 4 years to Enable winning a second Qatar Prix De L'Arc De Triomphe while also coming to America and winning the Breeders Cup Turf.

So many dominate performances to look at but if Closer had a ballot, this is how he would vote!

The Eclipse awards are tonight at 8pm ET
