America has been home to some of the best racehorses of all time and will continue to churn them out due to the impressive breeding programs that they have across the US. The country has a rich history of some of the best breeders of all time, who have created some of the greatest racehorses of all time and due to this, we thought we’d investigate some of the greatest American racehorses of all time and why they were so great.

A list about the greatest racehorses can never not mention the greatest racehorse of all time, which many will say is Secretariat. Any list of famous racehorses should have “Big Red” on due to his performances in the Triple Crown during the 70’s. The Triple Crown is widely regarded as the most prestigious award in the horse race circuit, and in 1973 he was able to win the race by an incredible 31 lengths, something that has never been able to be matched since and some regard it as the most impressive performance ever.

Although there have been some rather impressive racehorses over time, there is still a good resource of betting sites in which you can bet on the latest races happening today. The best thing about these sites is that they have the best odds on all their markets that aren’t on gamstop and are continuing to entice in new customers through their lucrative sign-up offers.

The next horse that must come into contention has being named the greatest racehorse of all time is that of Man o’ War who might be a thing of legend due to being foaled back in 1917. Man o’ War was so impressive that he won 20 races out of the 21 he raced in and claimed $249,465 in prize money during the 20’s which was probably the equivalent to over $3 million now which just shows how good he was. The only shame was that his owner never has him the opportunity to claim the US Triple Crown.

And finally, of more recent time, Winx is certainly in contention to be named one of the greatest racehorses of all time, although she was based in Australia. Winx was that impressive that the mare has the most high-level race wins with 25 Grade 1 wins which is a Guinness World record. Not only that, but Winx has also earned more money than any other horse in the world as she claimed over $26 million in her career which is an unbelievable statistic.
