The Famous Three American Horses to have Ran on the Track

A list of the best American racehorses isn’t a fully objective endeavour when it’s put up by a group of racing fans. It is impossible to include all horses who have ever competed in the United States on any one list. Some, like Secretariat, are always included regardless of the number of races they have won or distance they have travelled, we actually have included that horse in this list because it will be silly to miss out this fantastic horse.

Regardless, we all know that horse racing is a fantastic sport to watch, and we should be fortunate that we get to experience this event first-hand, this sport is also very competitive, and you can profit from the horses if you do your research. Furthermore, if you would like to get into horse betting, you will be able to find fantastic odds and many more within the site.


Secretariat is a must-have on any list of the greatest racehorses of all time. In 1973, he was called “Big Red” after his crushing victory in the US Triple Crown. He was in a class all by himself. Before him, there had been Triple Crown champions, but no horse had ever delivered in such a spectacular fashion. Champion Three-Year-Old and Juvenile Colt in the USA, Secretariat was honoured as horse of the Year in both 1972 and 1973.

This horse became the ninth thoroughbred horse to win more than $1,000,000 in prize money after winning the Marlboro Cup in a world record time.


The horse Kelso was indeed a fantastic horse despite the horse missing out on a US Triple Crown bid in 1960.  This horse had a unusual lengthy lifespan for an American racehorse, and in the 20th century, this horse won more races than any other thoroughbred. As well as this, for a record five consecutive years from 1960 through 1964, he was named the American Racehorse of the Year. From 1961 through 1964, he was also Champion Older Male Horse.


With 25 Grade/Group 1 victories, the horse Winx holds the world record for most top-level victories.  After Black Caviar, she became just the third horse ever to be inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame while still in training. This horse also won the Cox plate four times continuously at Moone Valley and also for four years in a row, Winx was voted Australian Horse of the Year and Champion of the Middle-Distance racehorse in the years of 2015-2016 and 2018-2019.
