The "Wonder Filly", who is one of the only fillies to ever have been compared to the great Ruffian. Her 20 1/4 length win in the Oaks was impressive, but her win in the Preakness against the boys was something else entirely. Her time at the Mother Goose Stakes was less than a second slower than the record set by Secretariat. She recently ran against the best boys in the country at Woodbine, and she became the first filly to ever win that race. She also set a track and course record. Calvin Borel, who ran Mine That Bird to victory in the 2009 Kentucky Derby and gave up his Preakness ride to jockey Rachel instead, says that she is "The best horse he has ever ridden. " His list of horses whom he had jockeyed is impressive, to say the least.
Smarty was a great story and a better horse. If it wasnt for early retirement he would be top 5 of this list.
He one the Kentucky Derby in 2004! Don't forget that's not it
A top class steeplechaser from the 1960s and, like his stable companion, Arkle, trained in Ireland. Flyingbolt was the Champion Two Mile chaser and the very next day ran a highly creditable third in the Champion Hurdle.
Won 1962 Washington D.C. International beating Kelso as well as a slew of other races. Great horse!
Like his dad Alydar Easy Goer choked when it mattered most. He deserves his spot which would be under Sunday Silence.
2nd place Kentucky derby and one of THE BEST America has ever seen. And he is ridden by Garret Gomez.
This British horse was one of the greatest hurdlers of all time and considered by many, myself included, to have no equal. Won three Champion Hurdles 1968-1969- 1970 and was second in 1971.
Great horse beat Easy Goer 3 out of 4 times. Proven to be a great sire and now a sire of sires. His grandchildren may prove to be the best middle distance turf runners in the world. Gentildonna Ofevre and gold ship all appear to be runnig in the 2013 arc.
How can you guys leave out the best horse to not win a triple crown
He won the Kentucky derby 2 times or more
Giacomo won the 2005 derby with mike smith as his jockey. He rocks!
Yuo kiddin me? HE won the Belmont Stakes aganst Mine that Bird. Of course he's awesome! But Zenyatta is better XD
What a great horse, winning 5/5 in 2007, Would have won the arc in my opinion. Sadly he got injured in the prix foy. It would have been nice to see him thrash Dylan Thomas after already doing so in the Prince of Wales.
A True Champion!
Won group1 races from a mile to a mile and a half. Would have won the arc if not injured, and would have then stormed the Breeders Cup Classic in 2007!
