The 2015 International Classifications for Purebred Arabians were announced on Wednesday 27th January by IFAHR. 
The Shadwell Arabian racehorses are well represented : 

Amongst the 4yo+, MANARK comes 3rd with a rating of 123. After a good season in the UK where he was placed in several Group races, MANARK went to the UAE and joined Erwan Charpy's training yard. He won his first Group race at Meydan, the Group 2 PA Bani Yas over 1600 m. At the end of March, he competed in the prestigious Dubai Kahayla Classic (Gr.1 PA) and won from start to finish, in record time.

The top rated 3yo is the homebred colt MURAAQIB with a rating of 118. MURAAQIB won his first start at Toulouse and then came second at Chantilly, in the Coupe de France des Chevaux Arabes (Gr.1 PA). He then showed his superiority over the distance of 2000 m in 2 Group 1 PA races: the Al Rayyan Cup (Prix Kesberoy) in Deauville in August and then the Qatar Total Arabian Trophy des Poulains at Saint Cloud in October.
