Swain leads Godolphin sweep of Cartier Awards.
Members of its team carried off half the equine accolades available, with its controversial Breeders' Cup Classic third gaining the award as best older horse in Europe.
Dream Well, winner of the French and Irish Derbys, was announced as Horse of the Year at a gala dinner in London.
The strength in depth of the Godolphin team in 1998 is underlined by awards for Aljabr (juvenile colt), Cape Verdi (three-year-old filly), Kayf Tara (stayer) and Swain (older horse).
In addition Bint Allayl, owned by Ahmed Al Maktoum, won the juvenile filly award.
Arnaud Bamberger, managing director of Cartier Ltd, said: "It is a great achievement for Sheikh Mohammed and his Godolphin Management Company."
The awards also delivered consolation to the connections of Tamarisk, with the colt winning the sprint title.
Tamarisk missed the Breeders' Cup Sprint after the handicappers ruled that he was not good enough to run.
