Crystal Ocean, Enable and Waldgeist top the latest Longines World’s Best Racehorse Rankings with all three having achieved a rating of 128.

Waldgeist famously denied Enable a historic third victory in the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe just over a week ago, which led to the change at the top of the eighth edition of the rankings for 2019.

In the final metres of the Arc, Waldgeist passed Enable and posted a 1.75 length victory over her to improve his rating from 124 to 128.

Sottsass finished in third, improving his rating from 120 to 123.

Waldgeist and Enable are now tied at the top of the rankings, along with Crystal Ocean, who won the Prince of Wales’s Stakes (Group 1) before finishing second by a neck to Enable in the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth QIPCO Stakes (Group 1) in July. Waldgeist finished third in both of those races before winning the Qatar Prix Foy (Group 2) and the Arc.
