|terri.drennen No other horse, even a colt, has been mentioned as being better than Secretariat, Ruffian was indeed the best we have ever seen, a sprinter and a dist... morence horse all wrapped up in a show horses' body. We do not, nor have not, will not see anyone like Ruffian again
|lacey.terveer Zenyatta has been confirmed 37 days in foal to War Front!!
|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..
|CreativeCause This filly was the closest to have ever won the triple crown won the kentucky derby and placed in the preakness and belmont. Really should have won th... more preakness too.

Outstanding on and off the track, the undefeated 1988 Champion Fem... morele Older Horse produced eight winners and three G1 champions. Personal Ensign was 1996 Kentucky Broodmare of the Year, a distinction she earned for her dam, Grecian Banner, in 1988.
|ssinn96 Can she get pregnant again?
|RobynRoach The Distaff in 84 was run at the same distance as the Classic. Based on her time, Princess Rooney would have beaten the colts handily. She was magnifi... moreent!
|~RuffianQueenOfRacing~ no other 3 year old has accomplished what Twilight Tear did! 10stars!
|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.
|luvzenyatta 1945 Horse of the Year..wow. She was also best 3yo filly, best 3yo of either sex and best handicap filly or mare. Of 21 starts; 15 wins, 3 seconds an... more 1 third. She was awesome!
|Lisa111 Does anyone know where I might find more information on her? Books? I can't find a thing and I want to know more about her.
|MikeSek She was a great filly before she was a great mare. She deserves all the respect in the world.

|airedale2008 Dark Mirage was a diminutive filly weighing 710 pounds. Her deaf dam had no ears and there was nothing but laughter at the 1966 Keeneland yearling sal... more when the race horse who resembled a Shetland pony stepped into the auction ring. The small package turned into a speedster, winning the first Filly Triple Crown by a combined 28 lengths. She placed second only to Dr. Fager for 1968 HOY in the colt’s record breaking year, bumping Damascus to third. Injured in the Santa Margarita Handicap when she jumped over a cellophane wrapper blowing on the track, she was retired and scheduled to be bred to the Good Doctor. Sadly the injury did not heal and the Tiny Tigress with the big heart was put down at age four.
|LarryDickson One of the best 3 year old fillies.
|airedale2008 Ta Wee’s sire was Intentionally, the 1959 Champion Sprint Horse. Ta Wee took Champion Sprint Horse honors herself in 1969 and 1970. Ta Wee’s success w... mores preceded by her half brother Dr. Fager, who was 1967 and 1968 Champion Sprint Horse, as well as 1968 Champion Male Turf Horse, Champion Older Male Horse and Horse of the Year. Aspidistra was a fabulous broodmare. Has another broodmare had such tremendous success with two of her offspring?
|buckpasser Couldn't agree with you more. Total lack of respect for some of the top horses of the past. Most horses today couldn't hold a candle to the oldtimers

|MikeSek Being as amazing as she was she deserves some recognition.
|rafirox In your opinion, what was the best crop of all time? I think 1970's crop was the best because of the incredible quality AND quantity that was develope... more. Secretariat- One of if not he greatest racehorse of all time. He won the 1973 Triple Crown, beating Sham, he broke the track record in the Kentucky Derby while running each quarter faster than the last, he showed incredible acceleration in the Preakness and he obviously romped the Belmont by 31 lengths will trashing the record. He went on to a solid three year old season and appeared to be better on the turf! Forego- Probably one of the top 10 racehorses of all time. Winning the Malboro Cup carrying tons of weight! He was so agile and flexible, he could run any race against top competition. Sham- Despite losing to Secretariat, he too beat the Kentucky Derby track record. He was a pretty good horse that could have won the Triple Crown if not for Secretariat. Dahlia- Very good racemare who competed against the best of the best. She won stakes races all over the world and unlike MOST top racemares; she duplicated her performances in the shed. Our Native- Was a decent horse with an ok record. Linda's Chief- Owned California from 1972-1974 and I've heard MANY experts say that he could beat Sham. Stop the Music- Pretty good racehorse and remains in many blood today... Forgetting anyone? On Bloodhorse Top 100, this crop alone has #2 Secretariat, #8 Forego, and #50 Dahlia. Pretty impressive.
|LarryDickson Consistently one of best during her campaign
|rafirox IYO, is she the best progeny from Affirmed?
|LarryDickson Obviously good...Hollywood Park has race with her name
|luvzenyatta Great mare who won at 3.4,5,6,7, and 8 years old. 36:19-10-2 (10 wins were Grade 1) Earned $3,317,000. Sadly only had one foal. Inducted into Racing H... morell of Fame in 2001
|LarryDickson Top mare competing against Citation and Noor.
|LarryDickson Chris Evert was champion three year old
|LarryDickson Interesting filly, I wish I still had my history of horse racing book
|Protagonist Dubby30, I have read your comment also, and as mrsmaryzinke says, " your coment was good and funny". Haratio Luro used to say don't squeeze the lemon ... morery about saving some of a horse in a race. I believe they were saving Rags to Riches for better things down the road. We've also seen times when good mares race well but their offspring cann't get the job done. Especially when the industry places so much emphisis on who the dam is. So whats your opinion about Storm Flags Flying or My Flag ? They were good fillies ,yet didn't win the Belmont against such a nice colt the likes of Curlin. So why not like Rags to Riches?
|LarryDickson Bewitch was allowed to beat Citation as a two year old as Calument Farm finished 1, 2,3. Set distaff earnings record.
|LarryDickson First double winner in Breeders Cup races
|Northport Serena's Song today at Denali Stud, in foal to Medaglia d'Oro - hard to believe she is 21 - https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/936... more03_578785898809462_1449577217_n.jpg
|LadyRuffianBec On May 1 2009, we lost, who was undoubtedly one of the greatest horses to ever race on the turf. With a final record of 48: 32-9-3, her winnings inclu... moreed 2 Cox Plates, 3 All Ages Stakes, the Hong Kong Mile and she also won 13 G1s, she also won races carrying over 60kgs. She won a race at 3 years, carrying 62.5 kgs, she also won 2 Coolmore Classics carrying 60kgs! How many fillies or mares can have that said about them? With earnings of $11,351,607 in prize money. Sunline was the first horse ever to be inducted into a racing Hall Of Fame, whilst still active on the track. Not to forget she beat Champion Stayer and 13 G1 winner Tie The Knot, multiple times. Sunline was finally put to rest after battling Laminitis for 9 months. Sunline was one of those horses where you knew they gave 100% even if they ran last. Sunline was named New Zealand Horse Of The Year in 2000 and 2001 and Australian Horse Of The Year in 2000, 2001 and 2002. Also being named Australia Middle Distance Champion in 2000 and 2001. With a timeform rating of 129. Inducted in both the New Zealand and Australian Racing Hall Of Fame. Absolutely incredible horse. R.I.P Sunline.
