Undefeated Australian mare Black Caviar and British star Frankel share the top weight of 130 pounds in the latest World Rankings. The ratings are from December 1 through to May 23.
Frankel earned his rating with an ultra-impressive, six length runaway in the G1 English 2000 Guineas at Newmarket.
Former Australian star So You Think, now campaigned in Ireland, ranked third at 126 pounds on the basis of his victories in the G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup and G3 Mooresbridge Stakes at the Curragh.
The highest-rated American-based horses were Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom and Preakness Stakes winner Shackleford.
