Timeform is a highly reputed organization that provides very reliable information about the ability of racehorses. This information is used by enthusiastic fans of racing, bettors who use bet-ny.com, and others involved in the horse racing industry.

1- Frankel

Frankel carved out a big name for himself in the horse racing world. He achieved the incredible feat of remaining unbeaten in his 14-race career. He was owned by Khalid Abdullah and trained by Sir Henry Cecil. By the end of his career, he made a huge £2,998,302 in earnings.

Frankel won many famous races, including the 2,000 Guineas Stakes, the Sussex Stakes, the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, the Queen Ann Stakes and the Champion Stakes.

At the end of his racing career, Timeform awarded him a rating of 147, which made him the highest-rated horse in the organization’s history. The great horse also remained European Horse Of The Year for both 2011 and 2012. He is regarded as the equine version of Usain Bolt, the legendary former Jamaican sprinter.

2- Sea Bird

Sea-Bird was a French racehorse who won seven out of eight races during his career from 1964 to 1965. He was sired by the Prix du Jockey Club runner-up Dan Cupid while Etienne Pollet was his trainer. He was given a Timeform rating of 145, which made him the second-highest-rated racehorse in the history of the company.

As a two-year-old, he started in three races and won two of them- the Prix de Blaison and the Criterium de Maisons-Laffitte. The only defeat of his career came at the Longchamp Racecourse in the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère where Grey Dawn got the best of him.

The great horse won all the races in the next season. He claimed the Prix Greffulhe (by three lengths) and the Prix Lupin (by six lengths) before heading confidently to the Epsom Derby. No other contender could match his abilities there as he easily won Britain’s richest horse race.

After winning the Irish Derby, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes, and the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud that season, Sea-Bird also claimed the highly prestigious Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

3- Brigadier Gerard

Brigadier Gerard became hugely famous in the world after he won seventeen of his eighteen races. He remained unbeaten both as a two-year-old and a three-year-old in his career, winning important races like the 2000 Guineas, Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, the Champion Stakes, and King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes. His first and only defeat came at the Benson and Hedges Gold Cup.

Brigadier Gerard was awarded a Timeform rating of 144.
