A pair of horses at Churchill Downs, one sprinting and one routing, earned the co-highest Brisnet Speed Ratings of last week.

Bango earned a 103 Brisnet figure for his victory in the six-furlong Louisville Thoroughbred Society on Saturday, in which he prompted the pace and held by a tenacious head over Gulfstream Way. The race was his record-tying 11th win at Churchill Downs, and his 14th victory overall.

Search Results also earned a 103 Brisnet on Saturday for her win in the Locust Grove (G3). Though Hidden Connection attended her for much of the race, Search Results kicked away in the lane to win by 3 1/4 lengths over that foe.

Two horses topped the 100 mark on the Beyer Speed Figure scale from Daily Racing Form, both of whom did so at a mile on the lawn.

The highest Beyer of the week went to Master of the Seas, who earned a 104 in the Woodbine Mile (G1). The Charlie Appleby trainee rallied strongly from last to first, drawing clear to win by 3 3/4 lengths over Shirl's Speight.

Highestdistinction earned a 101 Beyer for his 3 3/4-length victory in the Baltimore/Washington International (G3). Trained by Lindsay Schultz, Highestdistinction overpowered King Vega in the lane to win his graded-stakes debut.

Here are the figures for last week's highest-rated stakes winners, ranked by Brisnet Speed Ratings, with Beyer Speed Figures and TimeformUS Speed Figures where available.
