There is no better feeling than watching your favourite horse cross the finish line before all the other competitors. Some people can afford to visit a physical racetrack to experience all this. But for many people, it is not convenient and so enjoying betting through horse racing in Tennessee is the next best thing for them.
Arkle is widely regarded as one of the best horses of all time. He was ruthless at the top of his career and went on winning one competition after another.
His biggest rival Mill House was a more famous name than his in the 1964 Cheltenham Gold Cup. Mill House was the defending champion of the famous race and had also triumphed over Arkle in the 1963 Hennessy Gold Cup.
But Arkle surprised everyone when the race began. He gave a stunning display of his skills and won the prestigious competition by five lengths. The two amazing horses locked horns with each other in the following year, and the Tom Dreaper-trained horse once again blew the competition away. His winning margin that time was an incredible 20 lengths.
Arkle recorded his name in history books when he claimed one more Gold Cup to win a historic treble in 1966. Not only that, he won the race by an unbelievable 30 lengths.
2- Red Rum
The Grand National is one of the most difficult horse races in the world. The distance is more than four miles and competitors have to jump 30 fences.
No horse has won the Grand National three times, except the legendary Red Rum. The Ginger McCain trained horse won his first race at Aintree in 1973 when he reduced the gap of 30 lengths to defeat Crisp. He retained his title at the 1974 National and finished second in the next two editions of the race.
Red Rum achieved a historic treble in 1966 in what is regarded as one of the greatest moments in the history of horse racing.
3- Golden Miller
Cheltenham Gold Cup is one of the most prestigious races in the UK, which also boasts a long history. Winning a single Gold Cup is difficult but claiming it on three or more occasions seems almost impossible.
This impossible feat was achieved by Golden Miller in the 1930s. The Basil Briscoe trained horse won his first Gold Cup in 1932 and then went on an incredible run of dominance. He claimed the following edition of the race and repeated the feat on three more occasions in three successive years. Thus, he earned the distinction of being the most successful Cheltenham Gold Cup horse ever.
Golden Miller also triumphed in the 1934 Grand National, which made him the only horse to claim the two premier steeplechase races in the same year.
Achieving success in sports require years of planning and training. To become a professional footballer, one has to invest a lot of effort to hone their skills. Only then, their names become so famous that anything related to their lives, such as Messi autism, start becoming headline news around the world.
