The Citizen (Gauteng) - - RACING EXPRESS -

Justin Snaith has moved into the Top 30 on the TRC World Train­ers’ Rank­ings after his top-notch per­for­mance at the L’Or­marins Queen’s Plate Fes­ti­val. He was also named TRC “Trainer Of The Week”.

The lat­est rank­ings show Snaith hav­ing im­proved by a whop­ping 25 po­si­tions from No 53 to No 28 on the log, cur­rently led by the for­mi­da­ble Bob Baf­fert, ahead of Ai­dan O’Brien, Char­lie Appleby, Chad Brown and John Gos­den.

Mike de Kock (No 25 from No 30) and Brett Craw­ford (No 50 from No 48) are other South Africans with Top 50 po­si­tions.

Among own­ers, Gaynor Ru­pert’s Drak­en­stein Stud has moved into 50th po­si­tion from 73rd on the list led by Cool­more Part­ners, while An­ton Mar­cus (No 25 from 29), is among the lead­ers on the jock­eys’ log, which is led by Bri­tain's Ryan Moore.

The TRC Global Rank­ings are a mea­sure of an in­di­vid­ual’s level of achieve­ment over a rolling three­year pe­riod.

They are based not on prize money the in­di­vid­u­als’ rep­re­sen­ta­tives have won but on the qual­ity of the per­for­mances those run­ners have put up in Group and Graded races. There are about 1,450 qual­i­fy­ing races around the world ev­ery year.
