Top 100 Racehorses... what's your list?
 
This is a list of the top 10 racehorses from the BloodHorse's list of the Top 100 Racehorses of the 20th century;
1-Man O' War
2-Secretariat
3-Citation
4-Kelso
5-Count Fleet
6-Dr. Fager
7-Native Dancer
8-Forego
9-Seattle Slew
10-Spectacular Bid

What is your Top 10 list & why (you don't have to list 10!)?
Mine is:
1-Man O' War - what can i say? Simply incredible in every way.
2-Ruffian - everyone loves her story. She was the greatest filly.
3-Dance Smartly - the only filly to win a Triple Crown.
4-Northern Dancer - 1 of Canada's greatest horses & 1 of racing's most influential sires.
5-Barbaro - no doubt he'd have won the Crown if fate hadn't intervened.
6-With Approval - another great Canadian TC winner.
7-Zenyatta - our current incredible gal!
8-Seabiscuit - who doesnt love this guy?
9-Secretariat - he rightly earned his place next to MOW. Cant wait to see his movie this fall!
10-Phar Lap - Austrailia's Red Terror!
