Carpenter Declares "Landmark Day For Aust Racing"
ANZ Classifications Committee chairman (& Australia's representative on the World Thoroughbred Rankings Committee) Greg Carpenter said the IFHA announcement was "monumental" & declared: "This is a landmark day for Australian racing with Black Caviar heading the list of the Top 50 active thoroughbred racehorses in the world. Winners at the Dubai World Cup meeting, US Breeders Cup meeting, Hong Kong International meeting and French Arc De Triomphe have all been rated inferior to Black Caviar. That helps put into context the enormity of her achievement in winning the Gr1 Newmarket Handicap & indeed her amazing sprinting performances over the past 6 months. It is particularly pleasing that she has broken ground for sprinters in the World Thoroughbred Rankings & showcased the growing strength of Australian racing on the world stage."
