Repo Rocks got not only his third straight win Saturday in the Grade 3 Toboggan at Aqueduct, he also picked up the highest speed figures among last week's graded-stakes winners.
With Andew Wolfsont aboard, the 5-year-old gelding took over in the stretch to win the seven-furlong event by 8 1/2 lengths. His performance merited a 110 Brisnet Speed Rating, a 111 Beyer Speed Figure from Daily Racing Form, and a 131 TimeformUS Speed Figure.
Art Collector got a 104 Brisnet, a 107 Beyer and a 127 TimeformUS figure for his surprise win in the Pegasus World Cup (G1).
Among possible Kentucky Derby 2023 contenders, Arabian Knight earned a 97 Brisnet, 96 Beyer and 117 TimeformUS for winning the Southwest (G3). But he's trained by Bob Baffert, so he didn't get any Derby qualifying points because of Baffert's suspension from Churchill Downs. Baffert's horses must be transferred to an eligible trainer by Feb. 28 to be able to pick up Derby points.
Here are the figures for last week's stakes winners, ranked by Brisnet Speed Ratings, with Beyer Speed Figures from Daily Racing Form and TimeformUS Speed Figures, where available.
