Season’s highest rated races won by Dundeel


Season’s highest rated races won by Dundeel

Hard on the heels of Dundeel’s New Zealand Horse of the Year title comes the news that he also won both of last season’s highest rated races in Australia and New Zealand.

The 2013/14 ANZ Classifications and race ratings released on Friday by the Australian Racing Board show that both the 2013 MRC Underwood S. G1 and the 2014 ATC Queen Elizabth S. G1 achieved a figure of 120.8, ahead of the ATC Rawson S. G1 (120), ATC Tancred S. G1 (119.5), ATC Canterbury S. G1 (119) and MRC Memsie S. G1 (118.8).

Race ratings are determined by the average peak rating throughout the year of the first four horses to finish in each race.

Dundeel achieved a career-best figure of 122 in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, enough to earn him joint Champion status, alongside Atlantic Jewel, in the Intermediate Category.

Dundeel’s defeat of Atlantic Jewel in the Underwood Stakes was assessed at 120 which makes him joint Champion, alongside Sacred Falls, in the Mile Category. 

The ANZ Classifications are headed by the world’s leading sprinter Lankan Rupee (by Redoute’s Choice), awarded 123 for his victories in the VRC Newmarket H. G1 and the ATC T.J. Smith S. G1.


Dundeel will parade for the first time since his retirement  at the Arrowfield Stallion Open House, 21-24 August – click here for more information.
