Which horse is the greatest race winner of all time?
Many experts agree that the most fantastic racing horse of all time was Man o’ War, an American Thoroughbred. His notorious career includes winning 20 out of 21 contested races. His legacy is so great that he is listed in the National Museum of Race and Hall of Fame. As a result, his statue can be found in the Kentucky Horse Park.

They are a horse breed used for horse racing and other equestrian sports, such as polo, show jumping and combined training.

They are considered as the Rolls Royce of racing horses.
