A list from the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities of what they rate as the best Gr.1 Thoroughbred races in the world was published in the Racing Post on 4th March 2015. We thought it would be interesting to see how many of the races had been won by horses from Shadwell Stud (UK), Shadwell Farm (USA) or Derrinstown Stud (Ireland). 

In total, between the three farms and their racing operations, we have won 12 out of the 16 best races in the world!  Purists will note that some of the races were won at a time when the races were at different locations, formats and grades. This table is just for fun and to show the outstanding quality of horses and level of acheivement that can be reached through true passion, perseverence and patience!
