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.
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
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.
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.
Is this a real name?
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.
Yuo kiddin me? HE won the Belmont Stakes aganst Mine that Bird. Of course he's awesome! But Zenyatta is better XD

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
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
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.
If he raced against the best he would beat them. Eye to eye he loved a fight. The fighting tiger
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.V 1 Comment
He was one of the best but he kept running into black caviar
He was the best race horse I have ever seen.
Beat more champions than the majority of horses on this list.
The Roger Bannister of thoroughbreds! He's the first horse to break the 1:35 barrier for a mile in a sanctioned race.
The Chocolate Soldier. Avoided the big clash with Phar Lap, but would have been the only one to take him on.
