Top 100 Racehorses of the 20th Century

           The racing industry magazine 'The Blood-Horse' was one of several organizations who voted on the top horses of the 20th century as the year 2000 loomed.  Below are their choices.  Apart from Big Red himself at the top of the list, all horses marked in orange are descendents of Man o' War.  If you'd like to check on any horse's pedigree, click here: www.PedigreeQuery.com.   Use your browser's BACK button to return to this page.
           Along with the lists of Official American Champions and Consensus Champions, there is a list of the Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame inductees with Man o' War blood.  Again, all horses marked in orange are descendents of Man o' War.
