Update On The Pattern Racing World Championships 2019

Another good week for Godolphin bringing their total points won this year to 227 ½ points cementing their number one position in the PWRC Owners Table.

Mike Dillon watches Castle Lady win the Pouliches at Longchamp on the big screen at Leopardstown after Broome’s victory in the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial.

There were six G1’s on offer across the world over the weekend and they took a pair of them to bring their total to twelve G1 wins so far in 2019. In France, both the Guineas went their way, Persian King, now running in their colours took the Poulains and Castle Lady captured the Pouliches and in Australia, Osbourne Bulls ran second for the fifth time this year at G1 level in the Doomben 10,000. Those five seconds amassed between February and May puts him on top of the PCRW Horse Table ahead of Beauty Generation and the now-retired Winx.

His trainer James Cummings stays top of PRWC Trainer Table ahead of fellow Australians Chris Waller and the family Hayes, father David, son Ben and nephew Tom Dabernig who trained Qafila, a Shadwell owed filly racing in the famous blue and white silks of Sheik Hamdan who took the South Australian Derby at Morphettville.

Street Cry tops the PRWC Sire Table on 80 points helped largely by the sequence of seconds by his son Osbourne Bulls and also, of course, his daughter Winx.

Darley remains in pole on the PRWC Breeders Table, Osbourne Bulls boosting their tally to 129 points.

Hugh Bowman remains top of the PRWC Jockey Table not having a ride in either G1 down under.

In America, the combination of Bill Mott and Joel Rosario, last years champion jockey, proved too good in the Man o’War Stakes at Belmont repelling the Aidan O’Brien pair Magic Wand and Hunting Horn into third and fourth with Arklow getting up to be second.

In Japan Normore made the G1 breakthrough taking the Victoria Mile in Tokyo with Australian Damian Lane aboard pushing him to third in PRWC Jockeys Table.

We had 82 G1’s run so far this year. There is still plenty to come, the European and US G1 seasons are really getting going now while the Australian and Japanese season are winding down for their winter/summer break. That will mean big changes across all six categories of the PRWC 2019 will be upon us.

He had 14 G1 wins from 10 individuals with 11 2nd’s and 8 3rd’s.

Dubawi 6th last year jumped to 2nd this year improving his tally by a whopping 132 points. He had 11 G1 wins from 10 individuals with 10 2nd’s and 8 3rd’s.
