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

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.
Buckpasser was responsible for the "chicken Derby". He was entered in the Fla derby and the track claimed that it wa a non betting event because they did not want a minus win pool. Buckpasser won the race with a cracked cannon bone. He was the first racehorse to have a broken leg treated and resolved, such that he re4turned to racing. When he returned he raced well but was only a shadow of his prior formV1 Comment
An underdog from the start, she showed that she had what it takes to beat the boys. Had she not broken her ankles, she could have had a fighting chance against Big Brown.
I agree, this horse was truly exhilarating and the turn of foot, wow.
Good choice me thinks.
In the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, there were 18 runners. It included eleven Group 1 winners. These included Helissio, the 5 length all-the way previous years winner, Pilsudski, the previous years Breeder's Cup winner, who subsequently won the Champion Stakes and Japan Cup, and Swain, the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes winner, who conquered the mighty Singspiel.
In the paddock, his coat gleamed and his muscles rippled. Cash Asmussen attempted to repeat the tactics, riding Oscar Schindler making an impregnable trap to prevent Peintre Celebre from cutting through. On that day, Peslier was at his best. In a move as fast as a flash of lightning, the champion found a gap and like a rocket propelling flew through the field. In 100 yards the contest was over. Peintre Celebre's strides that day reminded fans of the great like Sea Bird. He won the race by 5 lengths like an emperor leading his knights in a victory procession. The course record was surpassed by 3,4 secs. ...more
