2014 OFFICIAL & RACING POST HORSE RATINGS


The 2014 Official and Racing Post horse ratings names the Top 10 horses in jump racing, and worldwide flat racing in two categories:
5 - 6 furlong and 7 - 9 furlong. The horse ratings table - below - is updated on the 1st and 15th of the month. .

Racing Post Ratings (RPR) are based on a horse's racing ability in relation to the weight carried i.e. if horse X beats horse Y carrying
the same weight then it is awarded a higher rating. The ratings are expressed in pounds (lb) so a horse rated 140 is regarded as 10lb better than one rated 130. There is a sliding scale for converting lb to distance where 3lb = 1 length over 5f and 1lb = 1 length over 2m
and upwards. Official ratings (OR) use the same criteria as Racing Post Ratings, but are compiled by the British Horse racing Board (BHB) and are used to determine the weights horses carry in handicap ratings. By contrast to RPR the BHB rating listed for horses in
results reflect the horses' ratings going into the race not what they achieved in the race.

BLACK CAVIAR UNBEATEN IN TWENTY ONE RACE STARTS
Australian bred mare Black Caviar (5 - 6f worldwide table) remains unbeaten in twenty one race starts, including eleven Group 1

Black Caviar's trainer, Peter Moody, has confirmed she will run in the 6f Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot on 23 June.

Their had been speculation in the racing press earlier in the year that Black Caviar would take on Frankel, unbeaten in nine race starts,
in the Ascot Gold Cup. However, with Frankel having been withdrawn from Ascot by trainer Henry Cecil, there is no chance of the
unbeaten two meeting at Ascot in a Group 1 race . In any case, at 2m 4f, the Ascot Gold Cup would have been far too big a challenge
for Black Caviar who has never raced beyond 7 furlongs.

Goodwood Racecourse and sponsors Qipco, have increased the prize money in the 1m Sussex Stakes from GBP 700,000 to GBP 1m
to try and secure a clash between Black Caviar and Frankel. We will have to wait till August to see if a showdown between the unbeaten pair at Goodwood becomes a reality.

So how do Black Caviar and Frankel compare? Black Caviar has only one race at 7 furlongs, never raced a mile (8f) and never
raced in Europe. Frankel, with six wins over a mile, won the the Sussex Stakes in 2011. Black Caviar's unbeaten record of twenty one
race wins is double that of Frankel, currently on ten.

Frankel is expected to step up in trip from a mile later in the season and Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager to owner Khalid Abdullah,
said the Goodwood prize fund would not affect where Frankel ran. However, Frankel's trainer, Henry Cecil, was more positive on the
topic of a Frankel v Black Caviar contest when quoted in Australia's Herald Sun on 18 May "I would love them to meet because I think
it would be good for racing". He added that the only realistic option for a clash would be the Sussex Stakes on 1st August.

Whether we get to see Black Caviar race against Frankel at Goodwoood in August, or any other Group 1 race in the UK this year, only
time will tell. Cynics might suggest that the respective owners of Black Caviar and Frankel would be less keen to see a dual between
the pair. For one it would be victory and, for the other, a crushing defeat for a racing legend and the loss of a prestigious record of never having been beaten.
