Dornoch got the highest Brisnet Speed Rating, 106, among last week’s stakes winners for his upset victory in the Belmont Stakes on Saturday.

With regular rider Luis Saez riding the Good Magic colt, a full brother to 2023 Kentucky Derby winner Mage, they covered the 1 1/4 miles at Saratoga in 2:01.64. It was the first Grade 1 win for trainer Danny Gargan.

Dornoch also earned a 101 Beyer Speed Figure and a 125 TimeformUS Speed Figure for the performance.

The highest Beyer of the weekend, 111, went to Cogburn for his win in the Grade 1 Jaipur at Saratoga. With Irad Ortiz riding, they covered the 5 1/2 furlongs in track record time of 59.80 seconds for trainer Steve Asmussen. The 5-year-old son of Not This Time also earned a 100 Brisnet and a 131 from TimeformUS.

The 111 Beyer was the second highest of the year. Ova Charged earned a 113 Beyer for her 12 1/2-length win in the March 24 Page Cortez Stakes at Fair Grounds.

It wasn’t in a graded stakes, but 4-year-old Arthur’s Ride also earned a 111 Beyer for his win in an optional-claiming allowance race at Saratoga on Friday. With Junior Alvarado riding, the 4-year-old Tapit colt led the 1 1/4-miles race gate to wire to win by 12 3/4 lengths for trainer Bill Mott.
