Greatest Horses Ever


The Top TenXW


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.

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" - Horsegirl

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.

Best horse ever. Secretariat forever - greenacres

One of the best racehorses of all time. I really miss watching this horse run. I think he could beat other champion horses like Zenyatta, Ruffian, Affirmed, maybe even Seabiscuit. But Secretariat is and always be the best racehorse of all time. I'm gonna miss you Pharoah.

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.

He was a little horse that withstood so much but he did prove he was the little horse could should be in the top five

why isn't seabisquit #1? read the the book for petes sake! youll see what I'm talkin about.

Three first places and two seconds in the Grand National which is the most demanding horse race in the world. No other horse has come close.

Unbeatable in the Grand National, which is the toughest horse race in the world - An immense horse!

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..

Why isn't Phar Lap number 1

I loved this horse, but whats does she do when the big red machine throws 2.24 at her on a dirt track. She loses by 25, great horse an I loved her but thank god she didn't run in 73

now 18-0, she desereves the top spot. I really like secretariat, but Zenyatta deserves it. She's never been beat, never and she always tries her hardest. she is no 1 - ZenyattaForever

SHE IS A SUPER HORSE! Beat the boys in the breeders cup classic, she was the first filly/mare to do so. She is 14-0 best record for mare ever!
