Shared Belief is world's top-rated horse in IFHA poll

Benoit & Associates
Shared Belief wins the Grade 1 Santa Anita Handicap last Saturday.

Shared Belief is the top-rated horse in the world after his romp in the Santa Anita Handicap, according to the first 2015 World’s Best Racehorse rankings released Thursday by the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities.

Shared Belief’s Santa Anita Handicap was rated 125, one point better than Able Friend’s victory in the Group 1 Steward’s Cup in Hong Kong.

The rankings are performance ratings for a single race compiled several times annually by a panel of international racing executives from major jurisdictions.

The Japanese horse Just A Way was the world’s top-rated horse in 2014, his Dubai Duty Free performance rated 130, four points higher than the next-highest performance. The leading American horse in the 2014 rankings was Bayern, whose Breeders’ Cup Classic win was rated 125.

Hey DEE if you happen to crawl by you're one serious troll. You state today on BH that you like Chrome,yet as others state you break your greasy neck trolling on EVERY Chrome thread bashing him and connections. You once stated you've owned racehorses (God forbid) please say you've owned a horse a fraction as successful. Doubt it. Your lack of class is evident in all the garbage you post as a snobbish "know it all" expert. FYI Greg J is someone that's a polar opposite of you. Your insults against many,including Greg illustrates what a brainless troll you really are. Bet it killed you when Chrome killed it by prevailing as HOTY,(as I predicted for months prior). Before you knock horse/connections that's actually a power in racing,perhaps look at your lack of success and realize whose a fixture in racing and who isn't.

Marc Rogala,how many days does it reach above 70 in your wonderful NJ? Probably only three days out of 365. You're a troll regarding jealous comments regarding CA Chrome(my pick last year to win Derby). Your silly comment about Coburn is unplaced. How many Derby wins does Shiek Mo have?
