• Most notable mover on Thoroughbred Racing Commentary global rankings
+47 Chrono Genesis
Perhaps surprisingly, Chrono Genesis did not do enough to crack the world’s Top 20 on the TRC global rankings with her third G1 success in the Arima Kinen at Nakayama on Sunday.
The four-year-old receives a 47-point boost after her neck victory over longshot Salacia in Japan’s end-of-season showpiece, enough to move her only to #25 (from #40).
However, the daughter of Arc winner Bago stays in training and would sit comfortably in the Top 20 if all those above her who have been retired were stripped out.
A Classic winner at three, she also has good form behind world #1 Almond Eye, though it is perhaps telling that Arima Kinen third Fierement, also a three-time G1 winner, got only a 4pt boost (#53 from #55).
Takashi Saito (+6pt, #89 from #118) and Yuichi Kitamura (+6pt, #131 from #169), the trainer/jockey partnership behind Chrono Genesis, also move up the ranks, while Yuga Kawada (+4pt, #11 from #13) is on the verge of cracking the Top Ten after partnering Danon The Kid to G1 success in the Hopeful Stakes.
Biggest human mover this week, albeit some way down the lists, was New Zealand jockey Vinnie Colgan (+10pt, #257 from #430) who partnered Concert Hall to G1 success at Ellerslie on Boxing Day.
