103Sunday Silence

Sunday Silence beat easy goer 3 out 4 times and beat him in the 2 biggest races (Kentucky Derby, Breeders Cup Classic). Also beat him in that epic stretch duel because Sunday Silence had more heart.

Should rank higher than Easy Goer, unless your only grading of the 1.5 mile win. Thought this list to include entire career.

How can you guys leave out the best horse to not win a triple crown

105Park Top

A fantastic filly. She ran in Group 1 races from ages 3 to 6.

Bonecrusher also raced to how well his opponents were. No matter who you were you were going to be beaten. He won them at lengths, he won them by a nose and he won them coming last on the straight - he won everything. This is just a popularity contest, line them up over 2000m and Bonecrusher would've smoked it.

Bonecrusher is the greatest racehorse ever. He just had a huge will to win from the most impossible places ever.

On his day unbeatable... I would him up against any of the horses mentioned here over 2000 at set weights on a
Real track (grass)... Likewise, anything else against Kingston Town at Moonee Valley in any October!

108Peter Pan

He won the Melbourne Cup twice, the first time he was crashed into by another horse which made him fall, yet he got up to win and then came back to win it again 2 years later

As much as I love Phar Lap, you can't have him at number 4 and Peter Pan well over 100 places lower, came along just a couple years after Phar Lap, and when both at their best, be very little in it I think, Phar lap is beloved in Australia while Peter is almost forgotten, which might explain the great difference in there placings?

Much lower in this list compared with some Aussie names than he deserves to be.
An outstanding staying champion, unfortunately generally underrated.

109Big Buck's

How good was he

110Golden Miller

His record speaks for itself. His sheer courage got him around Aintree to win. He was a not a natural jumper of the huge pre-war fences in the Grand National.

The most successful cheltenham gold cup winner winning it 5 times and the only horse to win the two nost prestigious steeplechases in the same year something that will never be beaten.

112Dawn Run

Champion Hurdles in France, Ireland and Cheltenham. Cheltenham Gold Cup. Champion 2 miler, Champion 3 miler. An amazing mare.

Watch Jnb Met when he beat festive season from impossible position

115Afleet Alex

169 are u kidding me? Two legs one of the triple crown with a blow out in the Belmont and he is down the list this far.

He was one of the best horse in is time

He was a great horse, and had a great story behind him

This horse is a beast...should be top 40

116Giant's Causeway

5 straight group 1's and captured huge racing public respect due to his ability to fight back when headed, went to US and went down a short head to Tiznow who is dual breeders cup winner. Mick Kinane dropping the reigns twice in the last 100 yards, I am sure he would of won otherwise.


117Golden Spin

My favourite horse of all time, coming second in the Manfred Stakes placing a win record of 9-1-1-1-1-2 and nominated for the Australian Guineas. Too bad he couldn't race as he pulled up lame after the Manfred Stakes, a gutsy little horse he is!

Definitely an upcoming sprinter.
