Power Rankings: Famous Horses






1)
Secretariat
Won the US Triple Crown in 1973 after a 25-year drought, setting race records that still stand today at all three races.
2)
Seabiscuit
A true champion of the 1930’s racing scene. This thoroughbred had a sometimes patchy career, but is one of the most famous horses ever to grace the track.
3)
Mister Ed
Ed may have never won a derby, but he is more well-rounded than today’s thoroughbreds. Ed served as a champion for the SPCA, was a smooth talker and a ladies’ horse. He was a veteran, having volunteered for the Air Force, was a talented pool player and had a short stint with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
4)
Silver
Silver is the only stallion who will be featured on the big screen this year, though the Lone Ranger refers to it as the “silver” screen, when in his horse’s presence.
5)
Pokey
Talking red pony who is Gumby's best friend.
6)
Blue
Mascot for the Indianapolis Colts. According to the Colts.com website, his favorite songs are “Wild Horses” by The Rolling Stones and “Blue” by Eiffel 65.
7)
Trigger
Though Roy Rogers never knew Denver’s current mascot, Miles, the statue (named “Bucky the Bronco”) that sits atop the Broncos’ stadium is actually a replica of Trigger.
8)
Miles
Haa Haaaa! Is funny because is the MILE High City! Aaaaah!
9)
Quick Draw McGraw
The most famous Canadian horse sheriff, based in an Old West cartoon.
10)
Gunpowder
Washington Irving described Ichabod Crane’s horse as a “broken-down plough-horse,” which likely indicates Gunpowder was not a Triple Crown threat. That, and the fact that he allegedly let his rider get spirited away by the Headless Horseman.
