Actually, just done a bit of research on this and the Dosage Index is influenced primarily by 'speed'. So looking at some speedsters from old:

Dayjur - 2.85
Lyric Fantasy - 2.67
Black Caviar - 3.0
Limato - 0.5
Pastoral Pursuits - 5.0
Cadeaux Genereux - 1.91

None come close to the sprinting dosage prowess of Red Marauder, however he completely missed his true vocation in life by running in stamina events over jumps. The mind boggles. :P

To be fair to connections, he probably wouldn't have been great as a sprinter. Fantastic over one furlong but would never have lasted home the full five. :D

If only that looked at the dosage! He could have been first out the stalls in the Epsom dash each year!
