Best Race Horses of All Time


The Contenders: Page 8

141 Equipoise

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.

143 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

144 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.

145 Horlicks

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.

146 Silent Witness
147 Golden Horn

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


148 Solow

He is the best miler in the world, he is also unbeaten on the distance of 1800m

149 Rising Fast

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

150 Alphabet Soup
151 Admire Rakti
152 Manikato

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.

154 Manduro

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!

155 Rain Affair

The further down this list we go the sillier it becomes!
Rain Affair at 135 and the champion Luskin Star at 137?
