|The LONGINES World's Best Racehorse Rankings (for 3yos and upwards which raced between 1st January 2019 and 4th August 2019)|
ENABLE (GB) , who improved her rating from 123 to 126, has moved into second position in the sixth edition of the LONGINES World’s Best Racehorse Rankings for 2019.
In a compelling renewal of the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth QIPCO Stakes (G1) at Ascot, Enable battled with CRYSTAL OCEAN (GB)  and ultimately defeated that foe by a neck. However, Crystal Ocean was carrying 3lbs more than Enable in the race, thus retaining his higher rating. WALDGEIST (GB)  finished third, two lengths behind, and improved his rating from 122 to 124.
Additionally in England, TEN SOVEREIGNS (IRE)  won the Darley July Cup Stakes (G1) by 2 ¾ lengths at Newmarket to join the rankings, and STRADIVARIUS (IRE)  improved his rating from 120 to 121 after winning the Qatar Goodwood Cup Stakes (G1).
In the United States, MCKINZIE (USA)  improved his rating from 121 to 123 with his 1 ¾-length victory in the Whitney Stakes (G1) at Saratoga. Two other horses have joined the rankings after impressing over the same track. IMPERIAL HINT (USA)  set a track record while taking the Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap (G1) by four lengths, and SHANCELOT (USA)  won the Amsterdam Stakes (G2) by 12 ½ lengths in his first attempt at stakes company.
