102 Red Cadeaux

This horse was the runner up 3 times in the Melbourne cup and won some great races all over the world. It was amazing when it was aged 5-7 around its peak it almost couldn't lose.

Can't believe they raced him this year. I had a dreadful feeling they were pushing it. Given he was a gelding, he had no stud worth to them.

Amazing horse Love you Red Cadeaux

No. 25 or so

Amazing colt! R.I.P. Champ!

104 Bold Forbes
105 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.

106 Park Top

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

107 Peter Pan

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

109 Curlin

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

110 Sage
111 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.

112 Ghostzapper

ABSOLUTE FREAK. Ghostzapper is perhaps the fastest horses of a time and would be betting favorite against all but 2 or 3 on this list.

168 behave yourselves, a joke rating, one of the best dirt horses ever

Agreed. He deserves much better than this.

Watch Jnb Met when he beat festive season from impossible position

114 Unbridled
115 Golden Spin

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.

118 Red Fella
119 St. Simon

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.

120 Bonecrusher

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!
