23 starts, 12 wins (7 x G1), 4 seconds, 0 thirds. Win % 52.2, Place % 69.6.
I HAVE PUBLISHED THIS INFORMATION IN THE HOPE THAT A FAN OF MONDRIAN (if there is one) WILL HELP CORRECT MY MISTAKES. For a horse that won seven group 1 races in the computer age I am surprised a more complete record does not exist on the net or if it does it is in German and beyond my comprehension.
Note that equibase has 26 starts for 12-5-1-5 for USD 754,215 which may include at least one other Mondrian ; pedigreequery also has 26 starts for 12-5-1-5 for Euros 965,434; wikipedia has no page; racingpost mixes at least one other Mondrian in its records and DRF only has 3 starts. I have assumed that france-galop is the more accurate however it is short on detail so the racing record below follows the france-galop listing. galopp-seiger.de does not seem to have a complete record although it is possible I have missed it.
GERMAN EARNINGS ARE ESTIMATES ONLY BUT SHOULD BE WITHIN 2% OF THE ACTUAL FIGURE
Germany earnings in German marks (DEM) DEM 1,916,725 Starts 18: 12-4-0-2
France earnings in French francs (FRF) FRF 0 Starts 1: 0-0-0-1
England earnings in British pounds (GBP) GBP 0.00 Starts 3: 0-0-0-3
Canada earnings in Canadian dollars (CAD) CAD 0.00 Starts 1: 0-0-0-1
'france-galop' has published race earnings in euros which I have converted back into French francs (the currency of the day) by converting the euros to FRF at the rate of €1 = 6.55957 francs and/or €1 = 1.95583 DM as is relevant. This is the rate used at the changeover of francs and marks to euros on 1 January 1999 and which was rate used by france-galop to convert earnings to euros. The france-galop earnings broadly equate to the earnings on galopp-seiger.de whereas the racingpost earnings for those races it published in British pounds bear litle relationship to either of these when converted to francs or marks.
Worldwide earnings in German marks (DEM)* DEM 1,916,725
Worldwide earnings in United States dollars (USD)* USD 2,033,076.74
Worldwide earnings in British pounds (GBP)* GBP 1,215,696.41
Worldwide earnings in Australian dollars (AUD)* AUD 2,610,620.21
Worldwide earnings in French francs (FRF)* FRF 12,436,964
* Based on Reserve Bank of Australia (rba.gov.au.statistics/…) daily exchange rates as published for the date of the race or the previous trading day if the date falls on a non-trading day.
I have included German earnings at the end of each race record where I am reasonably certain the amount is correct.
