Best Race Horses of All TimeHorsegirl

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!
Great mare from NZ who was the first horse from the Southern Hemisphere to win the Japan Cup. won it then world record time which although Secretariat was not extended, Horlicks would have beaten it by 7-8 lengths comparing times. Fantastic horse, deserves to be somewhere on this list.
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!
We have a new kid on the block after his brilliant Derby win and Arc win. As well as other multiple group 1 wins over his elders this year. He would be unbeaten if it wasn't for the freak race at York. It's such a shame he'll be retiring at the end of the month. I'd say he is more or less unbeatable on good ground. He's gotta be in the top ten at least. Very similar profile to Sea the stars and both incidentally are by Cape Cross. Not quite as good as the number 1 in my opinion which is Frankel but has gotta be right up there!
What he is a brilliant horse and should see great offspring to see of his soon
He is an unbelievable horse I have been with him the whole way and one of the greatest I have trained
He is the best miler in the world, he is also unbeaten on the distance of 1800mV 1 Comment
Won the caulfield cup, cox plate, mckinnon and Melbourne cup in the same year. The next year won the caulfield cup then certainty beaten in the Melbourne cup with a big weight
One of the all time greats
Should be in the top 50 for sure.
Way too low on the list
One of the all time greats
Simply has to be very high on this list. Second only to Black Caviar. Australian sprinters are the world's best and he was the best for 5 successive years.
Happy to see him here. He ran with heart in the Derby and consequently in the Preakness Belmont and Breeders Cup. No one expected him to place and much less win the Derby. He became an icon for underdogs. Mine That Bird has my vote!
He was a very good horse with a big heart. Despite his size he went on to win the Kentucky derby. He was a gorgeous horse. He was very small for a thouroughbred. And had very good bloodlines. He was a come from behind horse.
Not even in the Top 500, wrong selection, good horse with 1 lucky race
Winner of the kentekuy derby he was behind the pack and came up on the railV 2 Comments
OMG THIS IS THE BEST AUSSIE HORSE, ONLY HORSE TO WIN 3 MELBOURNE CUPS IN A ROW AND THATS THE BIGGEST TOURNAMENT IN HORSE RACING AUSTRALIA!
Amazing to see her blocked behind the other horses then out of no where she clicks and you see it she just makes her move and beats them all I have never been so happy to see a horse win when she won her 3rd melbourne cup.
She should be in the top 10 not number 13.
Proud to say I was there to see her win her third cup in a row. Absolute Australian racing history bar none.
Mikybe Diva is one of those rare horses - born not just to be fast - but determined to fight her way to the front regardless of the odds. I saw this horse perform her magic at the Melbourne cup. She had speed and a grace that clipped the wings of all the other horses she raced against. She made winning look effortless.V 30 Comments
Good grief. Triple Crown Winner - won $5 million to help sell Bonds for the War effort. Single leading lone entity to do so. Won the Triple Crown and the Travers Stakes - only horse to this day to do this. Ran 60 times and came in first 32; second 15 times and third 9 times. Was buried at Normandy before being sent back to Calumet. Unbelievable - 49? He deserves far, far better than this.
49? Are you kidding me?! You're rating steeplechasers ahead of one of the greatest thoroughbreds of all time? This is Whirlaway people. One of only 11 triple crown winners. One of the greatest. So I can't put much credence in this list, especially because I haven't seen anyone here who can even put a sentence together.
How could you do this? He should be in the top eleven. For Pete's sake he WON the TRIPLE CROWN. Because 46th? You have got to be kidding me.
Should be in the top 25 at least if not higher. You'll need to watch him winning the Preakness to know how great a race horse he truly was.V 5 Comments
Still holds biggest winning margin in the Derby by some distance joke of a position
A true Irish Legend
He was outstanding! Swinburn and Pigott were also outstanding with him. Also very kind and beautiful racehorse.
Geweldig. Ik heb zijn fijnste moment-de epsom downs derby- zo vaak bekeken, en elke keer als ik hem zie demarreren in de laatste 300 meter: kippenvel!V 8 Comments
He was an absolute machine, he was not pampered like a lot of racehorses especially the more recent ones, he won from 1200m to 3200m, his acceleration is like I've never seen before or after. Ran injured for most of his career. 3 cox plates and 14 group ones. He definitely should be in the top 5 at least!
Was greater then most of he horses mentioned here no disrespect to them he destroyed all comers anywhere from 1200m to 3200m and carried injury for most of his career much greater th maybe diva.
Won everything but the Melbourne Cup and just missed that due to jockey going too soon in the final furlongs. A much under rated horse and could of been one of the greats if not for frequent injuries.
The best lv ever seenV 13 Comments
Won group1 races from a mile to a mile and a half. Would have won the arc if not injured, and would have then stormed the Breeders Cup Classic in 2007!
What a great horse, winning 5/5 in 2007, Would have won the arc in my opinion. Sadly he got injured in the prix foy. It would have been nice to see him thrash Dylan Thomas after already doing so in the Prince of Wales.
A True Champion!
Had a deadly left foot & could strike at any time. Usually carried his own, and will be fondly remembered by his nickname: The Flying Dutchman.
Was he out of Van Der Hum who won the 76 Melbourne Cup?
