|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.
|UnionRagsRules http://www.horseracingnation.com/news/Is_It_Us_123 First blog here on HRN. Hope you enjoy.
|Exterminator Secretariat or Spectacular Bid going 10f on dirt?
|Houstonvamp OOPS sorry I got a little carried away.......He will be a quarter horse winner......but in the money ......we hope.
|Buckpasser Ray Paulick has a nice video tribute to the great Kelso on his website. What is interesting is that the 1964 International was a barrier start similar... moreto the steeplechase start.
|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?

|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.

|mikesek A definite inclusion in the Top 20 is in order.
|kaitlinefree1 what great race horses besides Zenyatta, I'll Have Another, & Wise Dan have / had amazing come from behind kicks?

|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

|Shanon A very good horse
|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.
|TimSmith It looks to me that many times in her career she was a bit out of shape and would finish 3,4,5 and then respond to racing a ton in a short time and pu... more together a long win streak.. The pattern is no differnet in her last few races..
|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.
|Southern.Humor My daughter's favorite horse, simply because of his name. She enjoys watching his races, finding it hysterical to hear his name. Got to start them you... moreg.

|tcglory Red Cadeux and Will Take Charge are the 2 toughest horses racing now that ship everywhere to run in all the biggest races and always put in %100 effor... more and that shows some true grit with theses horses. Good to see some horses can travel as much as they do and still run at the top of there game every time
|Cocoa2 He was fantastic.
|~RuffianQueenOfRacing~ no other 3 year old has accomplished what Twilight Tear did! 10stars!
|SSilence86 Wow... even after all this time, I am still love this horse... http://www.followhorseracing.com/en/the-latest/news-stories/2013/6/3/sunday-silence-the... morestar-no-one-wanted/
|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.
|SSilence86 Rafi you ever get the book on Nashua?
|morethanready111 There is definitely an ignorant person who keeps ranking her and several other great 1970's stars down all the time. If you don't know what a great ho... morese is, don't vote.
