125St. Simon

Never lost a race - one of the greatest sires in history - why should he be ignored because he lived 100 years ago? Every great horse mentioned in this list has him somewhere in their bloodline...

A very good horse. Probably too far back in our collective memories to be rated at the very top.

126Balmerino

Top horse who raced in NZ, Australia, UK and France... Beaten by Alleged in the Arc... Saw him up close as a 3 year old in NZ, he was a beautiful animal.. Big hearted and good on any track

127Rancher

Seriously, how can this horse be put ahead of the two champions immediately following him? (Dulcify and Northlery)

Never beaten over the straight six (furlongs, 1200M) at Flemington - the home of the Melbourne Cup

128Dulcify

Never saw is full potential but I would rank him up with the best watch is cox plate win amazing

I truly believe Dulcify would have gone on to be one of the greatest Aussie racehorses ever. Incredible stamina and just loved to run ahead of the pack. I was there the day Hyperno, whom went on win the Melbourne Cup a few weeks later, galloped on him and ripped the hock from his back leg.
Heart breaking.

129Northerly

If he raced against the best he would beat them. Eye to eye he loved a fight. The fighting tiger

130Invasor

Take the first "1" off of 131 and you'd be a heck of a lot closer.

A natural champion. Won in Uruguay, usa and Dubai.

137Ghostzapper

ABSOLUTE FREAK. Ghostzapper is perhaps the fastest horses of a time and would be betting favorite against all but 2 or 3 on this list.

168 behave yourselves, a joke rating, one of the best dirt horses ever

Agreed. He deserves much better than this.

139Horlicks

Great mare from NZ who was the first horse from the Southern Hemisphere to win the Japan Cup. won it then world record time which although Secretariat was not extended, Horlicks would have beaten it by 7-8 lengths comparing times. Fantastic horse, deserves to be somewhere on this list.

140Round Table

A fabulous turf horse that, at one time, was the all-time leading money wining horse. Usually led from start to finish. An exceptionally classy horse that conducted himself more like he was at a dinner party than a horse race. Always ridden by The Shoe (Willie Shoemaker) and ran a lot @ Arlington Park in Chicago where my family fell in love with a horse.
