Black Caviar best mare in the world

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.

Serb Candy To Follow In Siblings Footsteps

Trainer Mick Miladinovic needs his unraced two-year-old filly, Serb Chocolate to carry on in the prosperity of her brothers and sisters at Canberra’s Thoroughbred Park when she makes her race debut within the coming days.

The juvenile has run out of Mick Miladinovic’s mare Sacred Halo, by the sire Monashee Mountain who stands at Racetree Stud in Queensland for a small fee of $8,800.

The Canberra trainer’s passion for the stallion, Monashee Mountain came from in May of 2006 when his former stable star Century Serb was narrowly beaten by another from the stallions progeny (La Montagna) within the Group 3 B.T.C Classic (1350m) at Doomben.

“What got me directly into him was after i increased to Queensland with Century Serb,” Miladinovic stated.

“He had the race basically won after which La Montagna who had been through the stallion emerge from nowhere to simply pip him at risk.

“I thought from that moment that I’ll be likely to Monashee Mountain the year after.

“What I like about him is the fact that he’s strong. Their two-year-olds have great temperaments.”

Serb Candy’s brothers and sisters have proven effective at Thoroughbred Park having a combined ten race wins coming between Century Serb, Gavrilo , Princip , and Princess Dani who won five occasions alone in the Canberra venue.

The late Century Serb have been probably the most triumphant of her brothers and sisters getting proven themself effective in metropolitan company, winning three occasions in city class occasions as well as recording four placings at Group level.

Inside a recent trial at Canberra recently, Serb Chocolate finished 19½-measures from the champion in her own first public outing which Miladinovic stated was of no concern to him.

“She’s searching great. Don’t be concerned concerning the trial. She’s a pleasant equine,” he stated.

Miladinovic is hopeful that Serb Chocolate will depend on the larger occasions from the Canberra racing season such as the Listed $250,000 Black Opal Stakes (1200m) in March at his home track.

“If things pan out well, and she or he is just like I believe she’s, hopefully I’m going to be looking to get her towards the

Black Opal,” Miladinovic stated.

“But that’s still a lengthy way off. It’s a measure at any given time right now. That is what it’s as with the babies.

“There are a handful of two-year-old races which are approaching in Feb which i expect she’ll be running in.”

Patience Pays Off With Coliseo

Standard Gardner trained Coliseo recorded work best victory on Wednesday by running home to get The Hyperlinks Spend Cove Handicap (2000m) at Kembla Grange.

Coliseo settled third-last after jumping from the wide barrier. 5-year-old gelding found a obvious run within the straight after buying the rails on the road to energy home and win with a ¾-length over race favourite Mangaroa Flyer.

“It was great to win here with this particular equine. He’s had lots of issues and lots of injuries problems. I usually thought he was as much as the town class race, and that we got one with him,” Gardner stated.

The Canberra-based trainer stated that he’ll be striving to race Coliseo on the longer trip at his next begin with 5-year-old striking the road strongly in the win.

“I think he’s miles-and-a-half equine. The way in which he races – he will get back and works home. Therefore we may be delivering him over a little further,” he stated.

Gardner recognized the efforts of experienced jockey Shaun Penza who hadn’t ridden Coliseo openly for nearly two-years.

“He’s not the kind of equine that you could endure and sprint the final couple of hundred. You need to make him the 600 and obtain him moving. Shaun rode him terrific, he got him out and also got him moving along,” stated Gardner.

Penza stated that acquiring cover in early stages from the race would be a large influence in the come-from-behind win.

“The wind would be a large factor today whenever we were back where i was, the industry normal position for him,” Penza stated.

“He needed to peel towards the outdoors, and that is in which the wind is but when he found space he went very well.”

It had been Coliseo’s 4th run this campaign getting won narrowly first of all at Goulburn and coming ultra close at Azure Coast within the lead-as much as this race.

Trustworthy gelding has recorded four wins and six minor placings from 15 begins.

beats Driefontein wins the race.

would be the two-year-olds who’ve proven well above average ability and they have run time.

“We’ve attracted an excellent barrier for Saturday which is full steam ahead.”

Driefontein’s chances received a monumental boost on Tuesday morning when she arrived barrier three.

Her most powerful rivals also came well with BJ McLachlan second placegetter Sizzling to leap from gate

six, and Gerald Ryan’s Amorino being released of barrier eight.

Martin stated jockey Tommy Berry was delighted using the barrier.

Martin stated.

“He has ended the moon with this barrier draw therefore we just countdown to Saturday now.”

Karuta Full continued towards the Golden Slipper, but dropped to tenth despite leading for the majority of the


Martin stated Driefontein would also be headed towards the juvenile feature.

“After Saturday the filly will mind to Sydney,” Martin stated.

“I imagine Gai can give the filly a ten-day break at among the farms just outdoors of Sydney in route

the place to find offer her a renew. Then she’ll be in Sydney for the finish of The month of january and become

ready for charge up two-year-old races towards the Slipper.”

Pumper confident despite lack of interest in Amorino

Miracle Millions punters have switched their backs on unbeaten Gerald Ryan colt Amorino now, but champion jockey Jim Cassidy is not concerned by the possible lack of interest.

The large money in front of Saturday’s $2m 2YO Classic continues to be split between Gai Waterhouse flyer

Driefontein and well-bred Kelso Wood runner Sizzling , following the pair quinellad the BJ

McLachlan Stakes on New Year’s Eve.

On the day that, Cassidy steered Amorino to some scorching win at Rosehill copying his easy

debut salute at Randwick in October.

The Rosehill win initially excited punters and Amorino was briefly ranked a $5 opportunity to win Saturday’s

Gold Coast feature, but he’s been in the drift in the last week and it is now to $7 with a few


Meanwhile Driefontein ($3), and Sizzling ($3.70) have ongoing to draw in interest.

“That does not worry me,” stated Cassidy who’s chasing after another Miracle Millions Classic win on Saturday.

“Luck in running plays a large part, temperature at the time, it is a large race. If you are inside it you are able to win it if

you are not you cannot win it.

“I’ve seen favourites get beat before again and again. There’s three, four, five chances and any kind of

them can win.”

Cassidy won his first Miracle Millions 2YO crown aboard Dancer’s Pleasure in 1990, and bending his

tally on Catnipped in 1998.

14 years on, the guy who turns 49 later this month was silently confident he’d the best equine

to triumph again.

eighth alley, although Driefontein (3) and Sizzling (6) worked out better.
