Best Race Horses of All Time

121 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.

122 Round Table

I cannot imagine any other horse who was capable of winning so many races in such a short time. Moreover, Round Table ran at least as successfully and as often, carrying prodigious weight, as any other horse I can think of. Set 16 track, US, and world records along the way. Ran races at a frequency that was simply breathtaking. I cannot think of any other horse who was a fundamentally sound and durable as Round Table was. He was the little horse that could. - sl7293

A fabulous turf horse that, at one time, was the all-time leading money wining horse. Usually led from start to finish. An exceptionally classy horse that conducted himself more like he was at a dinner party than a horse race. Always ridden by The Shoe (Willie Shoemaker) and ran a lot @ Arlington Park in Chicago where my family fell in love with a horse.

123 Afleet Alex

169 are u kidding me? Two legs one of the triple crown with a blow out in the Belmont and he is down the list this far.

He was one of the best horse in is time

He was a great horse, and had a great story behind him

This horse is a beast...should be top 40

124 Potoooooooo

Yes. This is the horse's real name. The owner let the stud farm manager fill in the registry papers that year. The man thought he had heard pot an' eight o's. The name was registered the way the papers were submitted. He was an English horse. So much for a cockney's ear. Forget their accent.

125 Giant's Causeway Giant's Causeway

5 straight group 1's and captured huge racing public respect due to his ability to fight back when headed, went to US and went down a short head to Tiznow who is dual breeders cup winner. Mick Kinane dropping the reigns twice in the last 100 yards, I am sure he would of won otherwise.

131 Balmerino

Top horse who raced in NZ, Australia, UK and France... Beaten by Alleged in the Arc... Saw him up close as a 3 year old in NZ, he was a beautiful animal.. Big hearted and good on any track

132 Rancher

Seriously, how can this horse be put ahead of the two champions immediately following him? (Dulcify and Northlery)

Never beaten over the straight six (furlongs, 1200M) at Flemington - the home of the Melbourne Cup

133 Dulcify

Never saw is full potential but I would rank him up with the best watch is cox plate win amazing

I truly believe Dulcify would have gone on to be one of the greatest Aussie racehorses ever. Incredible stamina and just loved to run ahead of the pack. I was there the day Hyperno, whom went on win the Melbourne Cup a few weeks later, galloped on him and ripped the hock from his back leg.
Heart breaking.

134 Northerly

If he raced against the best he would beat them. Eye to eye he loved a fight. The fighting tiger

135 Humorist
136 Riva Ridge

I think riva should be a little higher up the scale

Riva should be in the top 40

Riva should be in the top 40...

If it hadn't rained that day of the Preakness this horse would be in the top 30-40. That's how sure I am that Riva would have won that race.
