LOOK at Imp's schedule. She was the Ruffian of the early days. Look how much she looks like her. No way, just like Ruffian, that Zenyatta or Rachel would have kept up with her.. never. She was an incredible horse, and in those days, they did not have the fancy care they do for horses they do now. Ruffian/Imp #1
Only one of three (other two were male) to win the Arc twice in a row. The equivalent would be an American mare winning the BBC twice.

Deserves to be on this list and well into the top 10. Sceptre was a legendary mare. Winner of not one, not two, but FOUR British Classics (2000 Guineas, 1000 Guineas, Oaks and St Leger and finished fourth in the Derby despite being left at the start) a feat which would be unheard of nowadays. I respect that all of these American horses in the top 10 were all very special but Sceptre is something else. The only horse to win four Classics outright, Sceptre also proved that she could hold her own against the opposite sex multiple times with wins in the St James' Palace Stakes and the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot as well as the Champion Stakes as a four year old. I was really surprised that this brilliant mare wasn't on this list as she really is one of the best in history. To win the number of races that she did in such a short space of time is the definition of 'courage' and it is likely that we will never see a horse win four classics ever again.
