WORKFORCE OVERTAKES QUALITY ROAD

Not on the racetrack, but in the most recent World Thoroughbred Rankings.

Off the strength of his win in the Investec Derby at Epsom (what some of us oldtimers call the Epsom Derby or older still, the English Derby), Workforce has overtaken Quality Road at the top of the poll. Making only his third appearance, Workforce impresivelly defeated his rivals by 7 lengths and set a course record.

Despite his impressive Metropolitan Handicap win, Quality Road slips to number two in the rankings with Paco Boy, Zenyatta and Byword rounding out the top five.
