121 Invasor

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.

122 Golden Miller

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.

123 Super Impose

Ran in a great era against let's elope, better loosen up and ended up being Australia's biggest career stakes earner at the time.

Won over all distances cox plate best miler in sydney an insanely fast finishing burst

No horse came home like old super

124 Tiznow

Poor ranking for a horse that won the classic twice and he beat Giants causeway who is a top 10 horse. He deserves much better

Tiznow is a sign of America, horse that goes down in legend

Who ranked these no way in hell Tiznow should be this low!

125 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.

126 Deep Impact

He is Japan greatest horse ever, and is in top 5 of greatest horses ever

Should be #1

Should be much, much higher than this. Puh-leeze!

127 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.

132 Lexington
133 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

134 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

135 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.

136 Northerly

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

137 Humorist
138 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.

He was the best race horse I have ever seen.
