Stats for Miss K
Kirsten Rausing is the ninth richest person in Britain with an estimated
fortune of £1.6 Billion. Her wealth was not created from racing but from
cartons (juice, milk etc. see the name Tetra Pak).
From East Anglia, her home for more than 20 years, she runs two studs. She
has another in Ireland. Rausing is chairman of the European Federation of
With such great wealth you would think she would only be interested in the
Derby's, and the other richest races throughout the world. This is not the case
as you will regularly find Rausing running at courses such as Wolverhampton,
Folkestone and Leicester.
Rausing has sufficient runs in the UK to create a profile. Using her profile
it is possible to identify profitable races for backing Rausing's runners. No
harm in rubbing off a little wealth eh?
Miss K Rausing Turf Profile
Overall 34 winners from 219 runners, 15.5% strike rate, 17.8% loss backing
all her runners.
Spring 15.2% strike rate, 47% loss
Summer 19.1%, 4.9% loss
Autumn 12.4%, 19.8% loss
She's very unprofitable to follow in the spring. Autumn is the time of year
where her strike rate is the lowest but the loss in that season is not as bad
as the spring. Summer is the best time for backing Rausing's runners.
Handicaps 16.4%, 5.4% loss
Stakes 15.2%, 22.7% loss
A good record in handicaps.
Sprints 12.8%, 20.1% loss
Middle 18.4%, 9.6% loss
Long 16.3%, 26.3% loss
A lower strike rate in sprints but the loss is not as great as in long
Group 27.3%, 63.6% profit
A-C 15.6%, 30.9% profit
D-E 13.9%, 36.6% loss
F-G 22.2%, 10.6% profit
She can win the in the highest class group races and in lowly class F &
Grade 1 courses 10.6%, 20.5% loss
Grade 2 20.9%, 16.9% profit
Grade 3 12.0%, 63% loss
Grade 4 29.6%, 72.0% profit
Grade 1 courses see her lowest strike rate. At Grade 4 tracks she is
Favourites 33.3%, 31.1% loss.
A poor record with favourites, and with 2nd favourites. Rarely has an
2yo 8.9%, 36.1% loss
3yo 20.8%, 3.0% loss
Seems to only race 2 and 3yo. After that they are probably shipped off to
stud. What is interesting is that Rausing only races Fillies. Out of the 219
runs, 216 were fillies.
FTO 6.8%, 33.9% loss
LTO 1st 34.5%, 18% profit
LTO 7th or worse 5.9%, 52% loss
A poor record with FTO's. Seeing as she races mostly 2yo and 3yo this could
explain why the Spring is a fruitless time of year for her. It can also explain
why her record in Stakes (maidens) is worse than in handicaps.
It is no surprise to see why handicaps are best for Rausing. The evidence of
poor record with FTO's, stakes races, and then wins in handicaps points to one
trainer - Sir Mark Prescott ;-)
Sir Mark Prescott 20 wins from 70, 29% strike rate, 41% profit.
Rausing also utilises the services of J L Dunlop. We would expect a similar
record with Dunlop, and especially in handicaps right? No. Dunlop has only hit
9.3% and returned a loss of 66% with Rausing runners. In handicaps the record
is even worse at 5.3% strike rate and 84% loss.
Other trainers she has utilised include G Wragg 13%, 2% profit; I A Balding
( will A M Balding continue with the same record?) 14%, 3% profit; R Guest 12%,
If you looked at the above stats without knowing who the owner was you would
think these were stats for an owner who likes to have a punt. The profile is
not what you would expect for someone with such great wealth.
Rausing is happy to hob-nob at the bread and butter courses. She seems eager
to land a few good priced touches in handicaps. It is not just lowly handicaps
where she does well; she does have a great record in Group races too.
It would seem best to avoid her newcomers and wait for either handicaps or
the best Group races.
Below are a couple of systems which could continue to be profitable:
The Rausing Handicap System
Back any runner in a Handicap where last race was in a Maiden race.
Previously 5 from 17, 29.4%, 72% profit
The Rausing Roused 3yo System
Back any 3yo in stakes races from June onwards. No first time out runners.
Previously 13 from 41, 31.7%, 57% profit
The above systems are for turf only. Any contenders will be identified on
the daily systems sheet so don't worry about missing the 3 or 4 runners each
