With hundreds of racehorses that could potentially claim themselves to be in the mix of being the greatest racehorse of all time, it certainly is an honour to be writing about the top three. Here are the top horses that we believe have to be in contention to claim themselves as the GOAT. There’s a difference between capturing a great moment in a certain event and lasting within the minds of race fans for the remainder of time – today we assess which horses we believe are the best of all time.
With horse racing meets finally getting back up and running after a period of zero meets due to the global pandemic caused by Covid-19, many horse racing punters will be pleased to see horses being back open again so that they can continue their horse racing betting. At certain bookies they are offering codes to entice fans back in now that live horse racing betting is back, such as the TwinSpires bonus code which is one of the best on the market at the moment.
When discussing the greatest racehorses of all time, the list isn’t complete without have Secretariat in it. He was the first horse in America to claim the US Triple Crown Competition in 1973 by blowing away the rest of the competition by winning by a record 31 lengths – one of the greatest performances of all time. And one that should be watched if you haven’t already.
Another horse from back in the day is that of Man o’ War, one horse that has certainly been looked up as one of the best of all time. In strange circumstances though, Man o’ War wasn’t given the opportunity to go for the US Triple Crown by his owner which is still a decision today that is question. Man o’ War won the $249,465 during his career, which in retrospect to today would totally roughly $3,200,000 which is the month of all the horses on this list.
The last horse in which we will mention of this list of greatest of all time is that of Seattle Slew, the most recent of horses on this list having retired in 2002. Seattle Slew became the only horse in which won the US Triple Crown of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont stakes without losing beforehand. Due to this, Slew realty captured an audience during the peak golden era of horse racing in the United States and the whole country would come to a standstill when “Slewmania” was racing.
