Best Race Horses of All TimeHorsegirl

We have a new kid on the block after his brilliant Derby win and Arc win. As well as other multiple group 1 wins over his elders this year. He would be unbeaten if it wasn't for the freak race at York. It's such a shame he'll be retiring at the end of the month. I'd say he is more or less unbeatable on good ground. He's gotta be in the top ten at least. Very similar profile to Sea the stars and both incidentally are by Cape Cross. Not quite as good as the number 1 in my opinion which is Frankel but has gotta be right up there!
What he is a brilliant horse and should see great offspring to see of his soon
He is an unbelievable horse I have been with him the whole way and one of the greatest I have trained
He is the best miler in the world, he is also unbeaten on the distance of 1800mV1 Comment
Won the caulfield cup, cox plate, mckinnon and Melbourne cup in the same year. The next year won the caulfield cup then certainty beaten in the Melbourne cup with a big weight
One of the all time greats
Should be in the top 50 for sure.
Simply has to be very high on this list. Second only to Black Caviar. Australian sprinters are the world's best and he was the best for 5 successive years.
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!
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!
The further down this list we go the sillier it becomes!
Rain Affair at 135 and the champion Luskin Star at 137?
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.V4 Comments
He is the best horse ever he has won many a race in his time and in my heart he deserves to be number 1!
Best horse by a mile when he won the ryanair I knew hed win the gold cup so I backed him the day after for next year and he bombed home. Praise the commander true great hardy lovable everything in him as a horseV1 Comment
