Ghaiyyath atop world rankings with a 130- I am curious why Enable has "only"  a 125---- how do they arrive at these figures?

The ratings are based on the performance of horses in elite races held during the designated period which takes in account the quality of opposition and achievements of each horse. The annual rankings denote the champions in the various distance categories for example sprint or mile, surface either turf or dirt/artificial and also the fillies & mares category.

Although it doesn’t tell you actually HOW they figure. And to me, very subjective in their minds as to what they think the quality of each horse in a race?
