A race horse’s name can bring fond memories of racing feats, powerful victories, strong performances, legendary careers, and the betting profits they generated, if they were all still racing today, people would be going mad trying to get free bets at Timeform for these horses that are as close to a ‘sure thing’ as possible. Some famous racehorses even have movies made on them to honor their extraordinary racing journeys. With such a rich and detailed history its hard to name just a few racehorses from different eras and parts of the world. 

While it is no easy feat, keeping victories and performances in mind here is a list of the best racehorses of all times:

Kincsem:

It would a shame not to Kincsem in the list of best racehorses of the world because this Hungarian mare did something that no other European horse has done in history. The European horse has a record for going undefeated in four different seasons. At the age of two years, the horse managed to win ten races in three different countries. Over the span of her career, Kincsem won 44 races in four years which includes three memorable victories at the Breeder’s cup challenge race. 

Black Caviar:

Not a lot of people might be familiar with this race horse if they only look out for America or European racehorses. For three years Black Caviar was the Aussie horse of the year. Black Caviar has a record of twenty-five undefeated victories, fifteen of which were in G1 races and three as six-year-old horse. The dark bay filly has a record of twenty-three consecutive wins in the modern era. She was included in the Australian racing hall of fame even before her retirement. 

Zenyatta:

Zenyatta has been named by the sports illustrated as ‘the greatest filly of all time’. Zenyatta was purchased for only sixty thousand dollars and didn’t begin her racing career until she was three years old. Her career started off slow with her first G1 victory in the year 2008. She went undefeated that year and even managed to bag a Breeder’s cup ladies classic victory. At the age of five, she returned to the Breeder’s cup and went on to become the first filly to win the main  Breeder’s cup classic. 

Affirmed:

Affirmed was then known as the last ‘triple crown winner’ before American Pharoah won in 2015. The Floridian chestnut won seven of the nine races he participated in. His rivalry with the horse Alydar is particularly famous with the two going head to head in three triple crown races. Affirmed finished first in all three races while Alydar came second in all. Affirmed’s most notable performance was the Belmont stakes performance which started off as the third slowest start in history and ended with the fastest last mile. 

Secretariat:

Secretariat is America’s most famous racehorse. In the start, he was perceived as a clumsy horse who had more interest in eating than in racing. After his victory people started believing that there might be something special about the horse. Secretariat went on to win all but four races in its career. He was known for defeating his competition with a huge margin.
