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.
Keith Melrose looks back on the final arrival of the jumps season and offers the first, guilty murmurs of the 'F-word'.
"Caid du Berlais, still just five, is an unexposed chaser who’s probably still improving overall: he posted consecutive career-best efforts over hurdles at Cheltenham and Aintree in the spring."
Joe Pride’s lofty opinion of Terravista has again been substantiated with the gelding accounting for a strong Darley Classic field last Saturday.
Pride has said a number of times the Captain Rio gelding is the best galloper he has ever trained, words which must be respected from a ten time Group 1 winning trainer.
It was bound to happen sooner or later, German-trained galloper Protectionist’s resounding Melbourne Cup victory completing a clean sweep for overseas trained runners in all three of the Melbourne spring majors.
Of course earlier, Japanese galloper Admire Rakti had similarly romped home in the G1 Caulfield Cup while Irish-trained Adelaide posted a last to first win in the G1 W S Cox Plate at Moonee Valley.
The racing cauldron that is Moonee Valley came a light on Saturday afternoon when fourteen runners went to post for a fascinating renewal of Australia’s premier weight for age contest.
The 2014 W S Cox Plate run over 2040m comprised ten individual group one winners with 19 victories between them, headed of course by dual G1 ATC Doncaster Handicap winner Sacred Falls.
Watch for a number of winners out of the Moonee Valley programs last week to make their presence felt during the upcoming Flemington carnival.
The Cox Plate and Manikato Stakes were the showpiece events during the Moonee Valley programs on Friday and Saturday however the features were well supported with a host of other stakes races throughout the weekend.
