Yes. This is the horse's real name. The owner let the stud farm manager fill in the registry papers that year. The man thought he had heard pot an' eight o's. The name was registered the way the papers were submitted. He was an English horse. So much for a cockney's ear. Forget their accent.V 1 Comment
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.
Yuo kiddin me? HE won the Belmont Stakes aganst Mine that Bird. Of course he's awesome! But Zenyatta is better XD
Giacomo won the 2005 derby with mike smith as his jockey. He rocks!V 1 Comment
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.V 1 Comment
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
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
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.
If he raced against the best he would beat them. Eye to eye he loved a fight. The fighting tiger
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.V 1 Comment
If it hadn't rained that day of the Preakness this horse would be in the top 30-40. That's how sure I am that Riva would have won that race.V 4 Comments
Beat more champions than the majority of horses on this list.
The Roger Bannister of thoroughbreds! He's the first horse to break the 1:35 barrier for a mile in a sanctioned race.
The Chocolate Soldier. Avoided the big clash with Phar Lap, but would have been the only one to take him on.
