Just as with football or any sport mind you, there is a lot of discussion over who is the best racehorse of all time. The millions of people who love horse racing all have their own opinions on the best horse and the addition of numerous sorts of racing makes it even harder again.
Just as a boxer has to pick what the best weight is for it, a horse will have to race in a certain field and can only succeed there. This means that certain merits can be had with such a horse in a specific race, whereas another horse in a different field may not need them. So, in our humble opinion, who are the best horses of all time?
Secretariat was the quickest horse that ever was and certainly among the very best horses on our list of all time, for this ability alone. Secretariat has beaten a number of notable records and horses during his time and just seems to shine.
The outstanding Shergar was a beautiful looking beast and also one of the greatest racehorses of all time. He had some of the best riders in the world in the shape of Lester Pigott and Walter Swinburn, but these don’t make a great horse by themselves nor with the aid of Pikeur clothing. Shergar was an amazing horse and one that certainly will be remembered in the annals of time.
With a total of 20 wins and having only started 21 races, Man O War is one of the greatest horses of all time. The horse managed to garner attention and love right across the horse racing brigade and lost only once in his two-year reign. Ironically, when he did lose, it was to a steed with the name ‘Upset’. It’s hardly the most hurtful loss of all time considering his amazing record.
Winning 26 races from a total of 30 isn’t too poor of record either and Spectacular bid did so during the 1980s. The horse should have won more too and only failed on winning the Triple Crown when the jockey made a mess of it. He managed to compete a 157 in the 1980 Strub and is still the fastest horse over 10 furlongs in Santa Anita, which says a lot considering it is over 20 years ago since he last ran – a long time before our Pikeur Clothing.
The Mighty Kelso won 39 races from a total of 63 starts and was something special in horse racing. He was given the accolade of horse of the year not once, but in fact five times, which is quite a notable honour. He was strongest during the period of 1960 – 1964 when he won the aforementioned merit. He wasn’t the most trust worthy horse, but was extremely durable in what he did and was a horse that took on everyone, no matter how big or fast.
