    His CV says otherwise. 6 g1’s One of most accomplished sprinters in Australasian modern history.

    Worlds best sprinter 3 years running?

    Your opinion is racing is always bad these days.

    in a poor era

    we always have teh best sprinters so if you are Australias best sprinter you will probably be the worlds best sprinter.
    I would put money on Trapeze Artist at its best would beat Chat at his best every time. (cant trust TA though)

    He is lucky he wasn't around in the BC era. he would be getting beaten 5 to 6 lengths and 2 lengths by Hay list

    The "how many group 1 races have I won" argument is not a proper argument. there are 80 or so group 1 races every year, something has to win one.

    Would rate Hay list, Placid Ark era in the prehistoric times. The Brawny Spirit, Sequalo Era, Hareeba , Alinghi, Takeover Target, Miss Andretti etc All got Lengths on him

    so a couple horses of recent times and a massive bunch from the 80's 90's the apparent pinnacle of Australian racing. I'm shocked.

    i guess this time you can't blame the breeders for our lack of sprinting stocks though.

    A line through Redzel, Sat wide beat him easily. Redzel and Chat about even at their peaks
    Its not a strong Era at all, but he is the best of them. For fear of repeating myself a lot of what could have been good sprinters are not at stud. Thought Flying Artie would be very very good but have no clue now cos he never proved himself.

    No Takeover Target was a superstar, One of the greats. That was a pretty good era

    Redzel a length more ordinary than Chat even though it beats it all the time

    Redzel is very consistent, but he is not a top liner. On my ratings Chautauqua’s best figure was 3L better than redzel. There is no hope at all that Redzel could hold out Chautauqua when both in their prime. No hope at all.

    Ratings are not the be all and end all. Good guide for punting in the moment but that is all. I like horses racing together as a sign on who is better
    as a matter of interest have you ever rated Northerly vs Sunline? Northerly IMO lengths better than Sunline , always did it tough against her but always put her away. Sunline another who's record was inflated by a poor era

    Timeform rates them the same - seems fine. Don't think there was too much between them.

    I think she is anyway, win or lose.

    If she wins today the conversation is more around our best ever, which is impossible to know

    Phar Lap won all four days of the Flemington carnival at distances ranging from 1400m to 3200m.

    That will never be matched.
