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?

Always at the front of a field of 22

162 Horse Chestnut

The greatest the Southern Hemisphere has ever seen in my opinion. When he went abroad he showed the mighty Americans a taste of what he was capable of. Only a tragedy that injury ended his career for in my opinion the clash of all clashes would have been Horse Chestnut vs Dubai Millenium in the Dubai World Cup and I truely believe that Dubai Millenium would have come unstuck against this South African Giant known as "Big Red". What a LEGEND!

Certainly the best horse to have graced the race courses of South Africa. A turn of foot like no other Horse Chestnut won so convincingly he appeared to be in a different race. So sad that injury curtailed his racing career

I have watched other horses run and I have to say Horse Chestnut was the best. I agree he would have beaten anything that stood before him. South Africa has never had a better horse even today.

Best horse ever, would've beaten secretariat hands down

163 Bold Ruler

Bold Ruler is Secretariat's dad why can't he be famous he the one who gave Secretariat all that speed! And I even love Bold Ruler because of his talent, color, and because he's Secretariat's dad! Anyone else love him yet?!

Why does Bold Ruler is the sire of Secretariat. If it wasn't for him, Secretariat would never have won those races! Not to mention he was once the horse of the year in 1957. In my opinion Bold Ruler and Sham should be in the top 10

Not true. Although it is rumored that Bold Ruler was in the stable when Secretariat's dam conceived, there are lot of stories about it being an immaculate conception.

No one cares if he is secretariats father. That's a bunch of crap that no one wants to hear. Bold Ruler was regularly good. This is a perfect spot on the list

He is one of the greatest ever know he should be in the top 10 like secretariat

166 Northern Dancer Northern Dancer Northern Dancer was a Canadian-bred Thoroughbred racehorse who won the 1964 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes and became one of the most successful sires of the 20th century.

Voted the most influential sire of all time. Won the Kentucky, the Preakness in 1964 and placed second in the Belmont losing the Triple Crown. N, Dancer should definitely be in the top 10, by the way: totally agree that Secretariat is the best of all time.

Unfortunately these lists are just popularity contests and no real reflection on ability. Northern Dancer at 197 is a prime example of this. Most people alive today never saw him run. This is why we see so many of the true great horses from the 50s and 60s so far down on this list.

No doubt this horse is in the top ten. His 2 out of 3 in the triple crown with a third in the Belmont for a little guy... And nobody wanted him to win because he was a "foreigner." Look at his times AND how about his 'offspring. '! Wouldn't be too many good horses around today without him.

If you saw...Northern Dancer...you saw the little horse who could...and then the after racing career of Northern Dancer is something else...You win the Kentucky Derby and Preakness...and then sire so many winners after you...and you fall to 202 on this list...? Top ten...for so many reasons...

A better sire than racer. Passed along the large heart gene to many great horses.

... including Secretariat! Splendid creature - the Prince!

169 Maluckyday

Is this the horse that raced in Australia? If so there must be some mistake to be listed ahead of such horses as rising fast, northerly and super impose

Huh! What drugs did you take to make this a selection.. Maybe a horse called northerly could take its place

179 Buckpasser

Buckpasser was responsible for the "chicken Derby". He was entered in the Fla derby and the track claimed that it wa a non betting event because they did not want a minus win pool. Buckpasser won the race with a cracked cannon bone. He was the first racehorse to have a broken leg treated and resolved, such that he re4turned to racing. When he returned he raced well but was only a shadow of his prior form
