The Livamol Classic, the feature race run at the Hawke’s Bay spring carnival at Hastings, has received an international tick of approval.
The weight-for-age Livamol (2040m) has been named among the top 100 Group I races in the world for 2018.
It is the first New Zealand race to make the top 100 since the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA) introduced annual race rankings four years ago.
The rankings are based on the international ratings of the top four placegetters.
The 2018 Livamol was won by Savvy Coup from Lizzie L’Amour, Danzdanzdance and Scott Base.
