Think I’ll spare you the deep analysis because,…well…I can’t even attempt to! Even with Brisnet past performances, the real issue is that, with international horses, there’s no way to figure out the lengths behind at different points of call nor standard pace ratings. So, here’s what I did. I took 5 variables and judged based on who gathered the edge, plus ties, in the most variables. Class: Who won at the Grade 1 (US) level. Track: Best average time per furlong at Meydan Racecourse in a win there. Pace: Took the Favorite Toy method out and measured average time per furlong in the last 3 races. (this took a fair amount of time). Distance: Longest winning distance of a horse in the field, splitting ties by best speed per furlong from that race. Average Winning Distance of pedigree, taking the average of the sire and dam’s sire numbers.
With that here are my top contenders in no particular order per race:
Godolphin Mile: Alpha, Master Of Hounds, Zazou
Dubai Gold Cup: Imperial Monarch
Al Quoz Sprint: Shea Shea, Medicean Man
