Lose to win

I was stoked to learn that Arrogate has been announced as world’s best racehorse according to Longines and their ratings.
On related topics, I have it on good authority that Jonny Bairstow will be named as the best cricketer in the world as soon as he puts an “H” in his Christian name, Nick Kyrgios will be named the new tennis number one, and of course Anthony Mundine is a shoo-in as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.
Maybe next year when the Longines panel of experts vote for the world’s best racehorse, they could do it on a day when they are not tired and emotional after a big night.
Finally, a personal plea to trainers Chris Waller and John Gosden: could you please make sure that Winx and Enable lose at least three races for the year 2018?
That seems to me a prerequisite for winning the title.
