Cracksman joins Winx at the top
WINX has been joined by retired English star Cracksman at the top of the World’s Best Racehorse rankings.
A panel of 18 international handicappers promoted Cracksman in the order after his Champion Stakes triumph at Ascot last month.
The panel valued the performance the equal of Winx’s best display in 2018.
In rating the performances, the handicappers decided Cracksman’s Ascot win was worthy of a five-point promotion, shunting him to the same level as Winx.
The panel also ruled Winx’s fourth Cox Plate triumph did not merit a rise in the rankings.
The panel adjudged Winx’s Queen Elizabeth Stakes demolition in April as her premier 2018 achievement.
