Won over all distances cox plate best miler in sydney an insanely fast finishing burst

163Strawberry Road

Top horse, won the big races In Australia easily. Took on the world with distinction and he was a bull not like many other champions in the list. He raced over many years in only the best group 1 races. A horse who beat top sprinters and at that classic distance. A star at his short stud career. What a champion.

164Dash for Cash

One of the best horse's in my opinion there are thousands of horse's with his impeccable bloodlines.


Could have beaten them a on his day, only time he got beaten was through ill Heath.

He was a super horse. A fitting last tribute to his trainer Major Dick Hern.


Agreed. He deserves much better than this.

He deserves to be in the top 20, if not top 10. He was the fastest horse in his time and his time in the because Classic (even adjusting for track conditions) is the fastest. He repeatedly beat several G1 winners and horses he beat went on to win the Dubai World Cup on two occasions.
Another horse that should be higher is Invasor.


Any horse that has won the worlds biggest race twice should be among the best

You mean to tell me a horse who wins like he did and was money leading earner of all time doesn't make the list? Come on

I agree. He nearly missed winning back to back B.C. CLASSIC, He won the Kentucky derby while clipping heels in the stretch, and always ran his heart out. Not to mentioned he was America's horse in the late 80's.

Defiantly a top ten all time horse!


Poor ranking for a horse that won the classic twice and he beat Giants causeway who is a top 10 horse. He deserves much better

Tiznow is a sign of America, horse that goes down in legend

The fastest horse Gordon Richards ever sat on! A great sire too, his ancestors still grace the ranks of the world's top sprinters. He will probably be the fastest horse in the list, being a sprinter. It is stupid to try and compare sprinters with milers, middle distance horses and certainly national hunt stars. It is even impossible to compare turf horses with those who were dirt specialists. Secretariat was much faster over 1 1/4 miles than Frankel ever was, but this was on dirt, which makes any comparison invalid.

No one ever remembers this son of the equally wonderful Tom Fool. Won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness before breaking his sesamoid bone during the Belmont and still managing to come in second.

176Round 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.


Won group one king stand trained by Robert cowell


Yes. Rising fast was a great champion who should be way up on the list.

Some jokers responsible for some of these listings!
This horse at 183 whilst Rising Fast is only at 185?
That is simply insane.

179Deep Impact

He is Japan greatest horse ever, and is in top 5 of greatest horses ever
