    I second that. Now there is a film I can watch over and over again. Such a sad ending. Definitely the greatest tb of all time.

    Well he's a pure quarter horse, but you know that quarters originated from tbs so he has Man O' War and then Poco Bueno and Triple Chick and then Hucks Eternal in his bloodlines too.

    I would have to say barbaro, but since he's not on the list, I would say Secretariat. I don't know much about tb racing, but he just stands out to me.

    Phar Lap, a giant chestnut thoroughbred gelding, is considered by many to be Australia and New Zealand's greatest racehorse, and is a much loved Australian national icon. It should be noted that many New Zealanders also claim that Phar Lap enjoys a similarly revered status in the New Zealand consciousness. At the time of his death in 1932, Phar Lap was the third highest stake-winner in the world. Bookmakers offered very short odds on him, even refusing to accept any bets on some races.

    Phar Lap was born and bred in Timaru, in the South Island of New Zealand, but never raced in that country. Following his purchase he was taken to Australia where he dominated the racing scene during a long and distinguished racing career.

    Standing 17.1 hands, he was sometimes called "Australia's wonder horse" in that country. He was also called "The Red Terror" and "Big Red", the same nicknames given to two of the greatest US racehorses, Man o' War and Secretariat.

    Sired by Night Raid (b United Kingdom 1918) out of dam Entreaty (b New Zealand 1920), Phar Lap was foaled in Timaru in 1926. His mounted hide is displayed at the Melbourne Museum, his skeleton at Te Papa Tongarewa - New Zealand's National Museum, and his heart at the National Museum of Australia in Canberra.
