Statute Stays A 106

A number get ratings drops

Statute retired to stud off an unchanged mark of 106 after her victory in the Listed Jockey Club Stakes for fillies and mares over 2000m at Fairview on Friday 21 August.

The race, originally scheduled for the turf course, was switched to the polytrack following heavy rain earlier in the week.

The Handicappers were of the view that 5th placed American Princess was the best line horse to use here and as such her rating remains unaltered on 90.

In rating the race this way, Statute runs fully 10 pounds below her 106 rating, hence the reason for her mark remaining unaltered, but runner-up Je Ne Sais Quoi  and 3rd placed Calandra both go up to 93, from 82 and 84 respectively.

There were no increases for any other runners, but a number of horses were given a ratings drop.

Ontenderhooks is down from 94 to 92, Princess Irene drops from 101 to 99, Coral Bay goes from 90 to 89, Onesie is down to 82 from 83, Jetorio was trimmed from 73 to 72, and Second Request was cut from 97 to 92.
