Three Tied For World’s Best


The 123-rated Magical |

Three horses from three countries are tied for the title of World’s Best Racehorse in the latest Longines-sponsored rankings released on Thursday. Sharing a mark of 125 are Hong Kong’s six-time Group 1 winner Beauty Generation (NZ) (Road To Rock {Aus}) and two horses that have since been retired: America’s GI Pegasus World Cup winner City of Light (Quality Road) and Australia’s Winx (Aus) (Street Cry {Ire}). Another Australian, G1 TJ Smith S. winner Santa Ana Lane (Aus) (Lope de Vega {Ire}), occupies the fourth spot with a rating of 124, while Happy Clapper (Aus) (Teofilo {Ire}), a frequent placegetter behind Winx, shares fifth with G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup winner Magical (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) on a mark of 123.
