American Pharoah World's Top-Ranked Horse
Triple Crown winner American Pharoah has claimed the top spot with a rating of 128 in the latest edition of the World's Best Racehorse Rankings for 2015, reports Blood Horse. The champion colt's outstanding 5.5-length victory in the Belmont Stakes last weekend saw him become the first horse since Affirmed in 1978, and the 12th horse in history, to win the elusive Triple Crown. The same day that American Pharoah entered the history books, Golden Horn landed the English Derby with a fetching 3.5-length win at Epsom to join Able Friend and Shared Belief as the joint second-highest rated horses in the world with a rating of 125. Lankan Rupee remains the highest rated Australian horse with a rating of 123. Click here to view complete rankings.
