Inglis Dominate World Sprint Rankings

12th Nov 2010

Black Caviar was today elevated to an international rating of 122 for her spectacular Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic win on Saturday. The figure puts her alongside fellow Inglis graduate Sacred Kingdom at the head of the world sprint rankings.

It also makes her the third highest rated filly or mare in the world behind only Goldikova and Zenyatta.

Furthermore, it gives the Inglis graduates the rare distinction of boasting the top three ranked sprinters in the world, with Starspangledbanner ranked third with a 121 rating.

All three were bred in Victoria and sold at the Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale.

The World Thoroughbred Rankings were a triumph for Inglis graduates, with five horses inside the top 50, with Zipping and Whobegotyou rated at 120.

This follows just a day after Black Caviar’s full-brother Moshe ($75,000 2009 Premier, 3c Bel Esprit-Helsinge) made a stunning six length winning debut at Bendigo. Like Black Caviar, Moshe was prepared for sale by Swettenham Stud.

All this points to the Desert Sun mare Helsinge, who produced a Redoute’s Choice filly this season, being one of the most valuable broodmares in the country at the present time.

Victoria’s Gilgai Farms proudly boast ownership of Helsinge and they will sell her Casino Prince yearling colt under the Makybe banner at the 2011 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale next year.

The wins by Black Caviar and Moshe also serve to underline the talent of Eliza Park’s Royal Academy stallion Bel Esprit, who has 25 yearlings heading to next year’s Inglis Select Yearling Sales.
