Can't you use the "modify" option and delete whatever you want just leave one keystroke.

Maximum Security jumps to number 19 in the all time money list - wonder how long the Saudi Cup will last before it ends up like the Pegasus just another good money race.  I struggled to find links to detailed results (racingpost.com was the easiest) and couldn't find anything other than the standard media release / news reports on the Saudi Cup website.

I have updated all time USD leaders list. Of those still racing that make up the top 20 we have Enable at 12 (although I imagine there must be some doubt about whether she will be back), Beauty Generation has jumped a few places to 14  (number 2 among ANZ horses and I guess his next start will be on Hong Kong Champions day in about 3 weeks), Redzel is now at 18 and Almond Eye is at 20 (Almond Eye is among the entries for Champions day over both 1600m and 2000m but I guess there must be some doubt about whether Japanese horses will run). 

According to my calculations Beauty Generation has the distinction of being the first horse to earn more than HKD100 million in Hong Kong. 

I now have so much stuff it won't fit on the page - guess I will have to consider an edit process.

Hi all

racingpost reports that Almond Eye is back in full training and is headed towards the Victoria Mile (run 17th May at Tokyo).  She is currently 20th on my USD earnings list.  I haven't read anything recently about the following: Enable, Suave Richard, Rey de Oro, Maximum Security, Bricks and Mortar,  Beat the Clock and Stradivarius. If you know of any that have retired could you let me know. 

cheers

Earnings records updated to include Almond Eye and Santa Ana Lane starts last weekend. Almond Eye has passed Lys Gracieux and Redzel to jump to no 17 in all time USD earnings.  Almond Eye ran just 0.1 of a second outside the 1600m. Tokyo course record on Sunday suggesting she is back to her best after being flogged by Lys Gracieux in the Arima Kinen last year and should add substantially to her earnings over the rest of the year.

Saudi officials announced that purse monies from the Saudi Cup (won by Maximum Security on 29 February 2020) are being withheld until they complete their own investigation into the US federal charges.  So Maximum Security's first prize of USD 10,000,000 is up in the air. Bob Baffert now trains the horse and the horse is back in work (Paulick Report).

After the Hong Kong international meeting Beauty Generation retires at no 14 on the all time earnings list with earnings of USD 13.839,908. Exultant is now at no 29 with career earnings of USD 10,250,108.  Exultant is a 6YO so he can be expected to move up a few more places before retirement.

Phar Lapís earnings in USD

I thought I would run a check on the Daily Racing Formís career earnings figure of USD 332,250 (I am in lockdown here again so have time).  Phar Lap raced when financial markets were volatile so I thought I would start with the London Financial Times where I discovered it is easy to find US dollars to British pounds forex rates (the paper reported on the New York exchange closing rate daily).  It is harder to find any information on the effective Australian pound to British pound forex rate presumably because Australia was part of the sterling block so there was an official rate.  There is a lot of stuff on the internet about the sterling block but none of it is conclusive and much of it seems inconsistent so possibly rubbish.

Reading through some of the articles in the Financial Times on the state of the Australian economy in the late 1920s one might conclude that economically speaking Australia was not ready for independence on 1 January 1901 as it certainly wasnít economically independent of Britain when the great depression hit.  On reflection one might conclude that Australia was a pseudo colony of Britain until the end of WWII and then became a pseudo colony of the USA.  Now the debate is whether we are better off as a pseudo colony of the USA or China.  It makes the kerfuffle about Australia day almost laughable as Australia as an independent country only exists in our imagination.

Cheers

PS Preliminary analysis suggests the DRF figure of USD 332,250 is about right.

Mishriff won an obscene amount of money in the Saudi Cup to vault to no 24 in the list of leading all time earners. John Gosden did a good job beating the Americans on dirt.  US dirt horse talent seems to be at a low point at the minute.  The US grass horse talent has been ordinary for a few years.

Cheers
