|UnionRagsRules Just such an amazing horse. Even way back when when tracks were considerably slower, he ran 10f in 2:01. Then there is his unforgetable 100 length win... more Could even Seretariat have beaten him? Both a great horses, and to me, the two greatest ever to sep foot on the track. But in your opinion, who was the better horse? I'm sure this has been asked a lot already, just curious.
|george.grigiss Greatest horse ever! No one comes close!

|AllenJoyner Not to mention the NINE track records Kelso set. And look at the great horses he beat while spotting weight most of the time. No horse in history beat... moremore Hall of Fame thoroughbreds or other excellent runners. It reads like a who's who of much of the 1960's.
|Houstonvamp OOPS sorry I got a little carried away.......He will be a quarter horse winner......but in the money ......we hope.
|airedale2008 Seabiscuit won the inaugural Hollywood Gold Cup in 1938. Citation finally became the first equine millionaire in his final race, the Gold Cup of 1951.... moreSo many superb horses contested on the now shuttered oval. What were the best races of the last 75 years at Hollywood Park?

|tmallios1 Buckpasser how are you. I wanted to ask you about a horse and your opinion if you saw him race or what was the consensus when he ran. As i mentioned t... more you,unless i experienced the history of the game,my interest is not that high. Unless of course something peaks my apetite. Ths weekend i was at a friends house and he had many relatives there. A gentleman who i surprisingly later found out was in his mid-90s' was discussing horses with us. I will preface this only because of the staement he made. In his time growing up in NYC, he was considered one of the top Racing authorities. He owned many horses and had impecable contacts in the industry. The Statement he made was that Native Dancer was the very best RaceHorse he had ever seen. He still follows the game and has a keen eye. Now i have always heard Big Red and some of the others have stated Fager or Kelso to name a few. My question to you is if you did see him run,is he far off in his statement. If someone else had told me that,i would of smiled and disregarded it. But when someone of his experience said that. It truly peaked my interest.I went back and googled him and i think i read that the only race he ever lost was in th Kentucky Derby.

|Exterminator Forego or Kelso going 2 miles on dirt?
|rafirox Who do you think was the best racehorse to compete in the 1940's? Citation? Whirlaway? Count Fleet? Alsab? Post, discuss and debate, please! I'll give... morethe nod to Citation, but not by much. I hope one of these two threads blow up.

|Exterminator Who was better, Assault or Armed?
|tcglory Won his maiden race against 23 rivals at Belmont Park on May 29, 1907 as the 6/5 favorite. I did not know that and that is crazy

|kaitlinefree1 Happy Easter Everyone! Q of the D today will be simple. who did you LIKE better? Affirmed or Alydar? not who was BETTER.
|Jim Awesome Can someone tell me about this one's racing career?
|Exterminator This filly was great. She won the Derby and placed in the Preakness and Belmont even after being whacked in the face with a whip in the Preakness.
|AllenJoyner airedale 2008: OK maybe I was a little tough on him..so I'll rank him a bit higher this time. And, BTW, he was my favorite 3 yr old in 1962 after Sir ... moreaylord got hurt. I was rooting for him in the famous Travers race. I just believe he should not be anywhere near the Top 100 of all time. Check out the BloodHorses's Top 100 for a more realistic ratings of the greats.

|jenna.heusi Well...just like last year (with Orb), I have settled on my Derby favorite. Not only because he is the fastest 3 year old out there, but my beloved 10... moreyr old basset mix dog (not so beloved tonight since she stole my salad)- her full name is California. So California Chrome is the horse both Cali and I will be cheering for. Love this horse.

|~RuffianQueenOfRacing~ no other 3 year old has accomplished what Twilight Tear did! 10stars!
|AllenJoyner Another decent colt is not in the Hall Of Fame, and no where near worthy of this high a ranking.
|njbucks Thanks Icy. Chenery is hardly an isolated instance, as I don't know of any major breeding and/or racing organization where the owners got rich soley f... moreom the success of the stable operation. It seems almost universal that the big horse owners were wildly successful in some other business pursuit (or inherited big bucks from a wildly successful ancestor) before starting into the horse business. At best, even though it provides a income for numerous empolyees of the operation, for the owners it remains an expensive hobby with very low (if any) profit margins as compared to their other business pursuits. Since most are, or were, wholly owned family outfits the tax effects of the death of the owner(s) can have profound impact on the contiuned viability of the stable which rarely outlive the primary owner. I always thought Penny took the most prudent course. It was a gamble, but the Secretariat name is still making money for her and her heirs forty years later as evidenced by all the swag for sale over at secretariat.com. This one horse has become one of the most profitable brand names in this, or any other sport. Penny is no longer in the horse racing or breeding business, but is full guns in the Secretariat business and doing damn well at that.
