Cheltenham Festival: Sprinter Sacre 'one of best racehorses of all time'
Sprinter Sacre has been given the official seal of approval as one of the best racehorses of all time following his stunning victory in the Sportingbet Queen Mother Champion Chase, writes Jonathan Herbert.
British Horseracing Board handicapper John de Moraville said Sprinter Sacre earned a rating of 188, the highest two-mile chase performance since the Anglo-Irish Classifications began in the 1999-2000 season.
"This is 2lb higher than the 186 recorded by Master Minded with his stunning victory in the same race five years ago," said de Moraville.
"Unbeaten in eight races and yet to be fully extended, who is to say the seven-year-old won't go on to better the highest-rated horse in the history of the classifications, Kauto Star and his rating of 190?"
