No fewer than five 2yos by Kodiac made the 2020 ratings - no other sire could boast more.
Mehmas, meanwhile, was represented on the list by two individual 2yos to place him behind only Kodiac, Galileo and Dubawi. He was the only first-crop sire to boast multiple representation.
Kodiac's brilliant quintet were headed by the Tally-Ho-bred Prix Morny and Queen Mary Stakes heroine Campanelle. Her rating of 113 places her on a par with Pretty Gorgeous and Shale as the best among the filly division.
Campanelle (pictured below), who was bred by Tally-Ho out of Janina and sold for 190,000gns as a yearling to Ben McElroy, shares her 113 rating with the Gimcrack Stakes runner-up Devilwala. Coventry Stakes winner Nando Parrado, who later ran second to Campanelle in the Prix Morny, has been awarded a rating of 111 while Ubettabelieveit and Umm Kulthum, successful in the Flying Childers and Firth Of Clyde Stakes respectively, share a rating of 110.
Mehmas is responsible for the highest-rated British-trained two-year-old of 2020 in the Clive Cox-trained Supremacy. Bred in Ireland by Kangyu International Racing, Supremacy won the Richmond Stakes at Goodwood before capping his season with a victory in the Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket.
Supremacy has been rated 118 while another son, Gimcrack Stakes winner Minzaal, is rated 111.
