Best Race Horses of All Time


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Easy Goer

Fastest Mile by a 3 year old ever. Second fastest Belmont ever. Five Grade 1's in a row in the summer of 89 against all ages. If not for two terrible rides from Pat Day this horse is top ten, and right there with Man o war and Secretariat. Been a racing fan for 30 years and he is the best I ever saw.

Like his dad Alydar Easy Goer choked when it mattered most. He deserves his spot which would be under Sunday Silence.

It's a crime that he is ranked higher than Sunday Silence. Sunday beat him three times out of four

82 In the Spotlight

The best that India has produced. No where near to the all time greats but surely the beat in India.

Big bucks what can't you like about him 19 str wins

83 Overdose

best ever

Bred in GB, sold for 2000 gns because of his crooked legs, raced for Hungary. Undefeated in his first 14 races. Won his first race by 18 lenghts. Won two G2 in Germany and came 4th in the King's Stand (G1) in GB after fatal injuries. Would have won the Abbaye (G1) in Paris if the race hadn't been annulled. Set many new track records.
Overdose was the embodiment of hope for the Hungarians.

84 Treve

The way she won the Arc was simply stunning. Time will tell if she earns a place among the all-time greats

Greatest filly ever and top 5 greatest horse ever, no horse has ever ran for a triple arc crown

I think she will earn her place amongst the elite. Two Arc wins ranks her up with the best

Favourite for third Arc in October. Now that would be an acheivement

86 Exterminator

This horse was called "Old Bones" because when he started racing it was very later at age 7 years as a starter. He was lanky and had a large head. He was discovered in an unusual place as a cart horse. He had personality too and heart to run. I read a book about him when I was a child. His name speaks that he was unbelievable for his time.

87 Risen Star

Son of Secretariat. Ran the Belmont just like his father, would've won the triple crown if it weren't for the traffic in the Derby. Great racehorse.

Very good horse, way better than much horses ranked in better position

90 Frosted

To put Frosted above Sunday silence is ridiculous.

91 Sea Cottage

Sea Cottage was the South African PHAR LAP in that the bookmakers had to have him shot to try and beat him.he recovered from being shot and two weeks later ran. a great horse that won his countrys big races with ease.

92 Pioneerof the Nile

2nd place Kentucky derby and one of THE BEST America has ever seen. And he is ridden by Garret Gomez.

Father of American Pharoah should be higher!

Funk him 🖕🏻

93 Mongo

Won 1962 Washington D.C. International beating Kelso as well as a slew of other races. Great horse! -

One of the greats all around turf & dirt Awesome!

94 Sunday Silence

Sunday Silence beat easy goer 3 out 4 times and beat him in the 2 biggest races (Kentucky Derby, Breeders Cup Classic). Also beat him in that epic stretch duel because Sunday Silence had more heart.

Should rank higher than Easy Goer, unless your only grading of the 1.5 mile win. Thought this list to include entire career.

How can you guys leave out the best horse to not win a triple crown

Great horse beat Easy Goer 3 out of 4 times. Proven to be a great sire and now a sire of sires. His grandchildren may prove to be the best middle distance turf runners in the world. Gentildonna Ofevre and gold ship all appear to be runnig in the 2013 arc.

95 Park Top

A fantastic filly. She ran in Group 1 races from ages 3 to 6.

99 Dash for Cash

Fantastic race horse. Just at shorter distances. And unlike most on this list his babies were killing it in high percentages. 3 bars is another good. Totally revolutionized the quarter horse industry

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

Watch Jnb Met when he beat festive season from impossible position
