Mate don't post this when you clearly have no idea of world wide horse racing stars, you seem to think that 99% of the top 200 in the world are North American. You should take away the likes of Goldikova and Ouija Board and call this North America's best 200 horses. You failed to mention, Eclipse, Alleged, Brantome, Gay Crusader, Ksar, Mill Reef, Pommern, Ribot, Rock Sand, Pretty Polly, Sceptre, Bahram, Blue Peter, Crepello, Dancing Brave, Dante, Flying Fox, Golden Fleece, Grundy, Hyperion, Lammtarra, Nashwan, Nijinsky, Nimbus V, The Misnstrel, Sea Bird II, Shergar, Troy, Tulyar, Oh So Sharp, Sun Charriot, Pebbles, Mtoto, Brigadier Gerard, West Australian, Gladiateur, Ormonde, Islinglass, Tetratema, Djebel, Tudor Minstrel, Palestine, Royal Palace, Sir Ivor, Quahsed, Meld, Merchand D'or, Danehill, Kris, Selkirk, Dubai Millenium, St Paddy, Mill Reef, Daylami, Corrida, Tantieme, Rheineigold, Rainbow Quest, Rail Link, Dylan Thomas, Harbinger, Hurricane Run, Dalakhani, Galileo, Sea The Stars, Sinndar, Zarkava, Midday, Lailani, Peeping Fawn, Canford Cliffs, Giants Causeway, Rock Of Gibraltar, Ramonti and Frankel.

Hi, your list is impressive, however, they are mostly American horses, and you left out several of the TC winners. Also, did you ever hear of Kincsem? Here is a little bit of info for you
Kincsem was bred in the Gestut Tapioszentmarton, owned by Herr Ernst von Blaskovitch, and foaled in Hungary. She was the unbeaten winner of fifty-four races from two to five, in five different countries. Described as looking "a little like Virago" (ch f 1851 Pyrrhus the First), winner of the One Thousand Guineas Stakes, Kincsem stood over 16 hands 1 inch and said to be "as long as a boat".

Another little bit of trivia. Did you also know that Omaha was buried in Nebraska, and that a new facility was built, and his grave is lost forever? Did you also know that Pleasant Colony is the only Derby winner whose roses were stollen before his connections could collect them and take them home. There is a lot of unbelievable stories that go with some of these great horses that are just so interesting.Source(s): Lifelong horse racing enthusiast

Don'f forget the Aussies! For example, Phar Lap and Makybe Diva. And getting back to U.S. horses, how about Ruthless? Where's Ta Wee?
Vicki, glad to see some respect for Kincsem!

You must put Buckpasser on your list! In fact, he'd be in the top 25.
