The 2020 World's Best Racehorse rankings have been released, with British superstar Ghaiyyath taking the top honour with his breathtaking win in the official World's Best Race, the Juddmonte International Stakes.

With four Group One races next to his name in 2020, he was given a rating of 130, four clear of his nearest rival Authentic, the winner of the Breeder's Cup.

Taking out equal third spot was seven horses, all given a rating of 125, including Australia's two best sprinters, Everest hero Classique Legend and Bivouac, the Everest runner-up and scintillating VRC Sprint winner.
These two Australian's were ranked among the likes of Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner Addeybb, champion stayer Stradivarius and American star Tiz The Law.

In tenth spot, we saw the likes of Almond Eye, Golden Sixty and Nature Strip, all with a rating of 124.
