Crystal Ocean Remains World's Best

Enable and Crystal Ocean in the King George |

G1 Prince of Wales's S. winner Crystal Ocean (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) has held his position atop the Longines World's Best Racehorse rankings in the latest edition released on Thursday.

The 5-year-old established a mark of 127 for that effort, and while he subsequently lost to Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) by a neck in the G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth S., the three-pound female allowance that Enable received means that Crystal Ocean remains one point ahead of her. The King George third Waldgeist (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) saw his rating improve from 122 to 124.

There remains a three-way tie for third between Hong Kong's Beauty Generation (NZ) (Road To Rock {Aus}) and the now-retired American City of Light (Quality Road) and Australian champion Winx (Aus) (Street Cry {Ire}).

Ten Sovereigns (Ire) (No Nay Never) joins the rankings at 122 after his G1 Darley July Cup win, while Stradivarius (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) improved one point to 121 for his win in the G1 Qatar Goodwood Cup. McKinzie (Street Sense) went from 121 to 123 for his G1 Whitney S. win, while Shancelot (Shanghai Bobby) earned a 120 for his 12 1/2-length GII Amsterdam S. win.
