Score Card

How the best horses of the season compare

Winning is everything.

It should be important to know, though, in what company a winner raced, and how close the finish was.

So we made a points system to reflect that. It’s explained in detail below.

At the end of a season, Equus award winners should all be high up on the table!

Gr1 races (Open)

  • All runners start with 50 pts
  • Winners earns 50 bonus points (which gives 100 points)
  • Others have points deducted, rate of 10x beaten lengths (integer, down to zero, not negative) – meaning 5.0 lengths or more behind the winner scores zero

Only the first five finishers can score points.

Gr1 races (age or sex Restricted) – 35 base-points with 35 bonus for winner, rest as above (meaning 3.5 lengths or more behind the winner scores zero).

Gr2 races (Open)

  • All runners start with 25 pts
  • Winner earns 25 bonus points (which gives 50 points)
  • Others have points deducted, rate of 10x beaten lengths (integer, down to zero; not negative) – meaning 2.5 lengths or more behind the winner scores zero

Only the first five finishers can score points.

Gr2 races (age or sex Restricted) – 15 base-points with 15 bonus for winner, rest as above (meaning 1.5 lengths or more behind the winner scores zero).

Gr3 races (Open)

  • Winner only, 25 points
  • This category mainly to provide opportunity for staying horses, who have no Gr1 opportunities. Winner only to score, as most of these races are lower class handicaps.

Gr3 races (age or sex Restricted) – do not qualify for points
