Repo Rocks, a 4-year-old gelded son of Tapiture, won his first stakes on Wednesday, and he earned the top Brisnet Speed Rating among stakes winners for the week.

The win came in the black-type Let's Give Thanks Stakes at Parx, with jockey Andrew Wolfsont covering 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:18.85 to win by a neck.

He earned a 96 Beyer Speed Figure for his effort, according to Daily Racing Form, and a 119 TimeformUS Speed Figure.

Among graded-stakes winners, Proxy got the highest Brisnet rating, 107, for his win in the Clark (G1) with Joel Rosario aboard. He also got a 101 Beyer and a 120 from TimeformUS.

The two juveniles who garnered the most attention this week didn't make the list below, which is ranked by the top 25 Brisnet ratings.
