    Looking at the other thread got me to thinking about racehorses. They are athletes as well. I just wondered if anyone has any opinions on their top 10. Maybe a list of top jockeys as well?

    Well, now that I started this, I'll have to go and make up my list. I'll only have to pare it down from about 100 or so, lol. And rearrange the order about twenty times. :D

    I really do think Barbaro would be ranked up there.
    He was not just a great horse, but he also did a lot for the world of horse racing, and horse awerness.
    I can not make a list of horses, too many to name.

    I think Edgar Prado is the best Jockey currently. I will have to get back with you on the list.

    By no means do I have any expertise but off the top of my head I had 5 of your 10 which just happen to be the first 5 in your list. Without any research, Affirmed and Alydar were also in the 8 I thought of. Eventhough Alydar was the bridesmaid all 3 times iirc in 78, does Alydar possibly bring the Triple home in most other years. I remember comparing these 2 to Ali-Frazier and does it get any better than that? Also Can.II came to mind. Of course never saw Man of War but heard the hearsay. I need to do some research.

    That's what I love about you MrR....you're so thorough, lol. :thumbsup:

    I still have to compile a list of my own, but it won't differ that much from yours and Nash's, at least the first five. And Nash, yes...Alydar was always the bridesmaid, but he got his revenge in the breeding shed. He far outperformed Affirmed in that regard, in terms of the amount of money and prestigious races that his offspring won. So that counts for something as well, the legacy they leave behind. Which is sort of why I'm leaning towards Seattle Slew as my #1, with Secretariat #2. More thought required. :D

    I don't know about 10, but one of my favourite horses of all time has to be Lammtarra.

    I backed it at 14/1 for the English Derby having never raced before in the UK. This horse was soooo hot. I remember Walter Swinburn (the jockey) saying before the race - "Back this horse, it will not lose!".

    Lammtarra flew out of the pack in the final furlong or so to take the 1st prize and as far as I remember he won it the quickest time ever.

    Needless to say he went on to win the King George and the Arc.

    What a horse!!!!!

    Yes mate!

    I went to Sandown to see her run. An incredibly fast 5 furlong sprinter.

    I remember Lochsong was soooo good the bookies used to bet without her all the time.

    Wot a buzz....!!!

    Nice memory Simmo....:thumbsup:
