G1 “grand finals” (races over $1m) = 250 points G1 races over $500k = 175 points G1 others = 150 points G2 races over $250k = 100 points G2 races over $150k = 80 points G2 others = 60 points
1st place = 65% of points available 2nd place = 25% of points available 3rd place = 10% of points available
I didn’t consider G3 races as I felt they would have only tweaked around the edges with the placegetters and not made any change to the top (besides it was a lot of work doing the top 2 grades). There were 150 races used, which is an effective enough sample in this case. The points allocated and the way they‘re distribution amongst the placegetters is of course debatable. apologies re formatting if it doesn't line up.
