Two South African-bred sprinters, What A Winter and Shea Shea, are rated second behind Black Caviar over 1000m on the International Federation Of Racing Authorities’ World Thoroughbred Rankings list.

On the new list, published last month, now-retired Australian wonder-mare Black Caviar is rated 10 points, or five lengths, better than the two South Africans after Shea Shea won the Al Quoz Sprint and the Meydan Sprint in Dubai this year and What A Winter won both the Cape Flying Championship at Kenilworth and the Computaform Sprint at Turffontein.

They are ranked the 28th best horses in the world, whilst Variety Club, ranked 37th, is the only other South African horse to feature on the list.

What A Winter is set to retire to Drakenstein Stud at the end of the season where he’ll join Horse Chestnut, Trippi and Philanthropist in the stallion barn.
