Multiple Gr 1 winners



AS AT 16 APRIL 2014

For the benefit of new readers, Patrick Brain maintains, as a matter of course, the ratings of those horses that have won two or more Group One races in Sydney or Melbourne. A client initially commissioned Patrick to “fill the gaps” so that there was a finite group of racehorses that had all been analysed, and from which some statistical conclusions could be drawn. The list now covers twenty seasons.

There are 252 horses that have achieved this elite status. The results to-date are: –

Golden Slipper, ATC Derby & Cox Plate

Records have also been kept for each Cox Plate, Golden Slipper and AJC Derby winner since 1986. Since the last published results in October 2011, The Golden Slipperhas been won by Pierro (113), Overreach (170) and Mossfun (168); the ATC Derby by Ethiopia (144), (It’s A) Dundeel (126), and Criterion (147); the Cox Plate by Pinker Pinker (179), Ocean Park (177) and Shamus Award (187)

Including these results, 27 of the past 29 winners of the Golden Slipper, 27 of the past 29 AJC Derby winners, and 25 of the past 28 winners of the Cox Plate are the products of compatible matings.

Now these 86 races have been won by 80 individual horses with the statistical breakdown standing at 59 of the 80 (73.24%) rating under 180; 14 of the 80 (18.31%) rated between 180 and 219; and 6 of the 80 (8.45%) rated worse than 220.

The ongoing results, both statistically and those enjoyed by our clients, continue to support the findings of Patrick Brain’s many years of research, that compatible matings significantly improve your chances of racing and breeding high-class racehorses.
