Timeform is the world leader in the rating of thoroughbred performances and has been the case for a very long time.
Racing and Sports has in its CEO Gary Crispe a highly respected analyst and handicapping expert. But also, he is the Australian representative of Timeform and regular discusses with Timeform in the UK, the various ratings given to horses around the world.
As well as news content and articles relating to various assessments about horses both domestically and internationally, this section has historical statistics from Australia, Season by Season summaries since the Year 2000, Global Rankings and current standings divided into Age Brackets.
Take some time and read the information to get an understanding of the comparison of the great horses in racing.
With the 2014-15 Racing Season now consigned to the history books it is time to reflect on the calibre of the three-year-old crop and what might lie ahead as they move into the older horse ranks.
Depending on what KPI is used there is more than one measure by which each season’s crop can be assessed.
Some great horses have won Saturday’s feature Group Two Pro-Ride Warwick Stakes 1400m, most notably Kingston Town who became just the second horse in history to win the race in three consecutive years 1980/1981 and 1982. (Limerick being the other in 1927-29).
While Saturday’s winner Royal Descent will never match the deeds of those gallopers, she does however join an elite group of past winners as far as the fairer sex is concerned becoming just the fourth mare to take the event in the last 35 years joining Private Steer (2004), Sunline (1999) and What Can I Say (1998).
There are two Group 1 races at Deauville on Sunday, but the presence of the exciting Shalaa in the Prix Morny means the field is down to just five.
Disappointingly not including Phoenix winner Air Force Blue , and although it will be intriguing to see John Gosden’s star juvenile make the step up to the highest level, it will also be very uncompetitive should Shalaa repeat the sort of form he’s shown in Group 2s.
Keith Melrose investigates how two-year-olds tend to fare in the Nunthorpe Stakes, and what the efforts of other recent runners say for ante-post favourite Acapulco.
“A runaway winner for the Weatherby’s Super Sprint. Tiggy Wiggy bolted up.”
Raphael’s Cat produced a terrific display at Canterbury on Wednesday when taking out the More Than Ready @ Vinery Benchmark 67 Handicap (1200m).
Resuming from a spell, the Gai Waterhouse-trained runner was away well with Blake Shinn in the saddle to settle on the speed and kicking well clear on the turn never looked like getting run down in the straight.
