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.
The 2015 Dubai World Cup will represent the first time the world’s most valuable race will take part on dirt since the switch to Meydan, and more controversially since the decision to change the surface from tapeta.
The anticipated Breeders’ Cup Classic rematch, made possible by the switch to dirt, has nonetheless failed to materialise, with Bayern, Toast of New York and Shared Belief all missing out for one reason or another. It’s been left to Candy Boy (now trained in the UAE by Doug Watson) and more significantly California Chrome to represent that memorable race. California Chrome won last year’s Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes and has held his form admirably since, his second to Shared Belief last month as good a run as he’s produced. For that reason, plus the versatility that suggests he’ll be at home here, California Chrome is very much the one to beat.
Brazen Beau made an emphatic return to the Flemington Straight Six in taking out the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap last Saturday.
The Chris Waller-trained colt and Joao Moreira last combined when taking out the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) during the 2014 Melbourne Spring Carnival.
Plucky Belle has upstaged odds-on favourite First Seal in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic at Rosehill last Saturday.
The Peter Moody-trained mare had produced an excellent showing when second in the Group 2 Millie Fox Stakes (1300m) prior to only her second tilt at Group 1 success in last Saturday’s Coolmore Classic (1500m).
A strong nine race card at Randwick last Saturday was spearheaded by the Group 1 Randwick Guineas won by boom colt Hallowed Crown.
The program was comprised entirely of stakes races with the two main Group 1’s in the Randwick Guineas and the Canterbury Stakes spearheading the proceedings.
Blueblood colt Wandjina has maximised his stallion prospects by leading throughout to claim the Group 1 Australian Guineas.
The Gai Waterhouse-trained colt was a determined first up winner of the C S Hayes Stakes (1400m) at Flemington and a fortnight later returned to the scene of the crime.
When the judge called Neptune Collonges as the winner of the 2012 Grand National, among Paul Nicholls’ first words were “That’s Henderson beat!”, as the realisation dawned on him that the £547k first prize would take him beyond his main rival’s reach.
