He's nice and awesome. Note:please comment. - Gatsby

Is the greatest racehorse in history! - spirithorse

No, this should be Man O' War.

I’ve heard of this horse but what did he do exactly? Not to hurt feelings I just want to know why he’s up here with Secretariet, Man O’ War and Seabiscuit.

3 Man O'War Man O'War

Man o war was a horse that dominated his half of the century. - Gatsby

I think MOW and Secretariat and Northern Dancer are the fastest maybe. MOW should be first, he was held back and given too much weight. It would have been nice to see him race Secretariat. I don’t really like racing etc anymore though because it’s too dangerous for the horses. They are all grat though, lets face it some of them are only faster by a fraction of a second😹.

4 Seabiscuit Seabiscuit Seabiscuit was a champion Thoroughbred racehorse in the United States. A small horse, Seabiscuit had an inauspicious start to his racing career, but became an unlikely champion and a symbol of hope to many Americans during the Great Depression.

He was a horse off the times at a point in a great nations history When all there was was hope that things would get better like the great nation america is He would also not be beaten like all good things he had heart he is the peoples champion

Was a little speed sprinter if you ask me. Won a match race vs the triple crown winner war admiral. - Gatsby

6 War Admiral War Admiral War Admiral was an American thoroughbred racehorse, best known as the fourth winner of the American Triple Crown and Horse of the Year in 1937, and rival of Seabiscuit in the 'Match Race of the Century' in 1938. During his career toward the end of the Great Depression, War Admiral won 21 of his 26 starts more.

War admiral was a mean lean racing machine! - Gatsby

It was a little sad that a triple crown winner that was 17hands lost a match race vs seabiscuit that was NOT a triple crown winner and was 15-2hands . - Gatsby

A horse with one of the most beautiful and efficient strides ever. The first Grand Slam winner in the Breeders Cup era and one of the top 15 horses off all time. He broke the 37 year drought of triple crown winners in 2015. One of the truly great racehorses.

US racing's first grand slam winner and has a very special personality and camaraderie with people. He is also the 1st Triple Crown winner of the 21st century and internet era.

My favorite racehorse of all time! Love him

12 Dr Fager

The only way he could be bet was to run a rabbit against him

Dr. Fager would win any field of dreams race from 6 furlongs to a mile and an eighth. At a mile and a quarter he would still be the one all others would have to be wary of in case someone was crazy enough to try and run with him early. Unbeatable under any circumstance up to a mile. In a match race against anyone who ever lived, he would be my choice at just about any distance period.

13 Galileo Galileo

Dual derby winner and the best stallion around

14 Barbaro Barbaro Barbaro was an American Thoroughbred racehorse who decisively won the 2006 Kentucky Derby, but shattered his leg two weeks later in the 2006 Preakness Stakes, which ended his racing career and eventually led to his death.

If anything he was the strongest, its just that the horse god called him up early for his own stable, god bless you Barbaro

Barbaro was the best racing horse of all time in my opinion! !
