Australian champion Black Caviar has accomplished the greatest ever worldwide rating for any mare within the latest world ratings.
The Worldwide Federation of Equine Government bodies launched its ratings overnight using the unbeaten British middle distance start Frankel on the top with 136.
Black Caviar was next and seemed to be named the earth’s best runner.
Throughout 2011, Black Caviar won her eight begins including six at Group One level and extended her career winning sequence to 16.
She was handed an interim rating of 130 after her Newmarket Handicap victory in March which was lifted to 132 within the final entries.
“The rating designated to Black Caviar reflects her absolute dominance within the Newmarket Handicap where she gave weight and trounced her rivals to win within the quickest time ever recorded within the 138 year good reputation for Australia’s legendary sprint race,” Greg Contractor, Australia’s representative around the ratings committee, stated..
Her ranking surpasses the prior greatest for any runner of 125 by Oasis Dream in 2003 and also the best with a mare of 130 by Goldikova last year.
Black Caviar headed the older sprint division in front of Australian bred and Singapore trained Rocket Guy (125) and Hay List (122) who went second towards the mare within the TJ Cruz Stakes and also the BTC Cup.
The ratings consider all performances around the world, regardless of where individual horses competed or were trained, throughout the twelve months.
To merit inclusion within the ratings, a equine should have been ranked at 115 or over.
From the 351 to create the ratings this year, 47 were Australian-trained.
Three-year-olds Sepoy and Atlantic Jewel were also declared champions within their particular age and distance groups.
Sepoy was handed a rating of 123 for his victories against older horses within the Group One Manikato Stakes at weight-for-age and also the Group Two Caulfield Sprint under handicap conditions against older horses.
Atlantic Jewel (121) was the champion three-year-old filly within the intermediate distance category on her seven length win within the Wakeful Stakes (2000m).
Atlantic Jewel was designated a rating of 121 for your win, exactly the same rating she accomplished on her victory within the 1000 Guineas (1600m).
She shared the title of champion filly within the mile category with outstanding French trained filly Immortal Verse who defeated Goldikova to win the audience One Jacques Le Marois.
Joining Sepoy and Atlantic Jewel within the three-year-old entries were Helmet (119), Manawanui (118), Mosheen (116), Wise Missile (116), Streama (116), Foxwedge (115) and Induna (115).
Dual Cox Plate champion Which Means You Think was designated a rating of 126 for his three wins at Group One level in Europe.
For that second successive year, the greatest ranked performance inside a race beyond 2700m was created by Americain for his 4th within the Melbourne Cup under 58kg, 1-1/4 measures behind the champion Dunaden who transported 54.5kg.
Americain’s performance was ranked better than Orfevres (122) win within the Japanese St Leger, Masked Marvels (121) victory within the British St Leger and also the Ascot Gold Cup win of Fame and Glory (121).
In winning the Emirates Melbourne Cup, Dunaden accomplished a rating of 118, the 5th best performance inside a remaining race this year.
Contractor stated the main reason Americain ranked substantially greater than Dunaden was while he conceded his rival 3.5kg, which equated to around six measures over 3200 metres.
