Best Race Horses of All TimeHorsegirl
The Contenders: Page 6
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.
A fantastic filly. She ran in Group 1 races from ages 3 to 6.V 1 Comment
He won the Melbourne Cup twice, the first time he was crashed into by another horse which made him fall, yet he got up to win and then came back to win it again 2 years later
As much as I love Phar Lap, you can't have him at number 4 and Peter Pan well over 100 places lower, came along just a couple years after Phar Lap, and when both at their best, be very little in it I think, Phar lap is beloved in Australia while Peter is almost forgotten, which might explain the great difference in there placings?
Much lower in this list compared with some Aussie names than he deserves to be.
An outstanding staying champion, unfortunately generally underrated.
Zenyattas brother amazing lost 1 race by a head. Deserves lots better! - Gatsby
Captured my heart when I was young
Champion Hurdles in France, Ireland and Cheltenham. Cheltenham Gold Cup. Champion 2 miler, Champion 3 miler. An amazing mare.V 1 Comment
One of the 5 best American racehorses ever, won big race, 10 million dollars
He won over $10 mill from just 16 starts
Never ran a clunker..needs to be higher
Watch Jnb Met when he beat festive season from impossible position
My favourite horse of all time, coming second in the Manfred Stakes placing a win record of 9-1-1-1-1-2 and nominated for the Australian Guineas. Too bad he couldn't race as he pulled up lame after the Manfred Stakes, a gutsy little horse he is!
Coming up for group 1, he is certainly capable
Definitely an upcoming sprinter.
Never lost a race - one of the greatest sires in history - why should he be ignored because he lived 100 years ago? Every great horse mentioned in this list has him somewhere in their bloodline...
A very good horse. Probably too far back in our collective memories to be rated at the very top.
I would rate him number 2.
You must be kidding me this low,Christ do you people know nothing of blood.
First comment here is dead on.
Bonecrusher also raced to how well his opponents were. No matter who you were you were going to be beaten. He won them at lengths, he won them by a nose and he won them coming last on the straight - he won everything. This is just a popularity contest, line them up over 2000m and Bonecrusher would've smoked it.
Bonecrusher is the greatest racehorse ever. He just had a huge will to win from the most impossible places ever.
On his day unbeatable... I would him up against any of the horses mentioned here over 2000 at set weights on a
Real track (grass)... Likewise, anything else against Kingston Town at Moonee Valley in any October!
How good was he
Take the first "1" off of 131 and you'd be a heck of a lot closer.
A natural champion. Won in Uruguay, usa and Dubai.V 1 Comment
His record speaks for itself. His sheer courage got him around Aintree to win. He was a not a natural jumper of the huge pre-war fences in the Grand National.
The most successful cheltenham gold cup winner winning it 5 times and the only horse to win the two nost prestigious steeplechases in the same year something that will never be beaten.
