The Top Ten

1
Secretariat
secretariat should have 100% of this vote. there is no other like him. Should hold all three records in the triple crown races (fastest time in the Preakness, but the clock malfunctioned). It's also been 34 FREAKIN' YEARS and nobody's come close.
Until another horse (the same horse) breaks all 3 of his triple crown (yes, including the Preakness) records he'll be #1. This year will be 35 years and I don't think they will ever be broken.
Secretarit is an amazing race horse. Defently #1. But why isn't Seabiscuit #2? Or even on this list? But there will never be another "Big Red"

3Man o' War

4Phar Lap
This horse was hero to a nation in the depression years. An amazing 32 wins from his last 35 career starts incl. Australia's 2 biggest Derby's, a Melbourne Cup (Australasia's greatest race), 2 Cox Plates (the WFA Championship of Australasia) and then traveled to the USA where he raced in and won the Agua Caliente Hcp (World's richest race at the time) in Tijuana, Mexico. This win was achieved with a cracked hoof and was to be his last racetrack appearance after he died mysteriously and tragically of arsenic poisoning. Many believe US mafia/bookmakers may have been responsible. A truly remarkable horse...
Champion racehorse who did some truly remarkable things. A late maturer who was virtually unbeatable as an older horse. Won everything in Australia before winning the worlds richest race at his final start before he was poisoned. There were many times where bookmakers refused to take bets on him he was that good. Freak.
Carried 9s12p to win the Melbourne cup over 3200 no horse in 83 years has got near that at all.. In 25 years of international raiders including 4 time UK champion stayer Yeats.. The internationals have only been able to win it with 8s10p..

9Seabiscuit
His and Pollards story alone, puts him on the list, but his record in handicaps, giving weight all round, and off level weights in Groups, stands out so much.

She shouldn't have won the Preakness though because of Mike Smith and Mine that Bird but it is some feat to get there in the first place
