New season MR’s – who’s the best?

Rabada wins in Turffontein on 2015-03-28

Rabada, winner of the Gr1 Premier’s Champion Stakes is the highest rated of the new crop of 3yo’s

August is the month, when the official handicapper for the first time publishes ratings for the new crop of 3yo’s.

It’s great food for thought and discussion, and interesting to see where the 2015 Equus nominees fit in.

For comparison, shown below are the MR’s for the older generations as well, split by sex, with their sires, dams, and broodmare sires.

Have fun!

  1. can someone please explain how captain of all gets a higher mr than futura, legislate. and then of course how does captain america go higher than legislate. is it because captain of all is owned by certain owners and gone to stud. something stinks.

    1. karel says:

      Barnes you are clueless – and your statements about ‘certain owners’ are so far off the mark they are almost funny. Why not learn how merit rating works?

  2. Dave says:

    The first and foremost thing that must be said is that both Kimberly and Fairview have traditiontally been the trading ground for the horses that could not make it in the more competitive centres.
    This said, then the MR 100 handicap in these centres, cannot be equivalent to the MR 100 handicap in the more competitive centres.
    So, please explain how Insearchofthesun can be rated @104, just as good as Hot Ticket and Wild One, both group 1 winners.
    In the last run of Insearchofthesun, he was beaten 10 lengths by a MR 86 horse.
    Insearchofthesun raided the more competitive centres on 6 occasions, and the best was placing once, clearly indicating different class.
    I am in no way having a dig at this horse, but this is more an injustice to the horse than any thing else.
    In the same light, Gogetthesheriff is rated higher or the same as:
    Dynastic Power – GR2 winner and placed , GR3 placed
    Balance sheet – GR1 placed
    Judicial – GR2 winner and placed, GR1 placed, GR3 placed.

    INSANE, thats all I can say.

    1. Rod Mattheyse says:

      The Drag/Drift for the weaker centres gets adjusted annually, maybe it should be revisited more frequently.

      Hot Ticket may have competed in Gr1’s but he has not got that sash yet
