Appointment of Senior Handicapper onto the World’s Best Racehorse Rankings Committee (WBRRC)

 

 

The World’s Best Racehorse Rankings Committee (WBRRC) welcomes The National Horseracing Authority’s Senior Handicapper, Mr Lennon Maharaj, as the South African representative. Lennon attended his first Committee meeting in Hong Kong during the month of December 2018 which was held under the auspices of the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA) and comprised of Racing Officials and Handicappers representing the five continents. WBRRC Co-Chairman Mr Nigel Gray said that, “it was a pleasure to work with Lennon at the annual meeting of the WBRRC last December and said that he is looking forward to the South African Handicapper’s contributions during 2019, and in the years to come”.

 

The rankings are based on the performance of horses in races held during the calendar year (1 January 2018 to 31 December 2018) and takes in account the quality of opposition and achievements of each horse. Below is the final rankings for 2018 of the world’s top 10 racehorses as well as South Africa’s Top 10 Horses based on International Ratings as agreed on by the WBRRC.
