1- Comanche

Comanche didn’t win some great horse racing events, but still, he became a symbol of resilience and fortitude for so many people. Two days following the Custer defeat at the Battle of Little Bighorn in 1876, a party was dispatched for investigating the site where an entire detachment was killed. And what they found there greatly surprised them- Comanche was severely wounded but had survived the massacre.  

After that incident, Comanche was not ridden again nor was he burdened with any work at all. The great horse continued receiving full military honors until his death which occurred in 1891 (due to colic). 

2- Brown Beauty

Paul Revere was a 40 years old express rider whose job entailed delivering messages and warnings to different places in America. On a hugely important night in the history of the US, Revere was given the task to warn Samuel Adams (one of the Founding Fathers of the country) and John Hancock (a prominent Patriot of the American Revolution) that the British Army were coming to apprehend them. 

Revered borrowed a friend’s horse named Brown Beauty at Charlestown. To complete his mission, he had to cover a 12-miles perilous journey while maintaining a good speed. He was greatly assisted in this by the speed and endurance of Brown Beauty. This way, the horse played a famous role in the history of America. 

3- Sprinter Sacre

Sprinter Sacre looked unstoppable at the beginning of his career. He claimed one famous race after another and went on a great winning streak that included the Arkle Challenge Trophy and the Queen Mother Champion Chase, etc. But just when he was at the peak of his career, he pulled up in the 2013 Desert Orchid Chase and was later discovered to be suffering from an irregular heartbeat. 

Sprinter Sacre soon returned to the turf but he seemed to have lost his magic as he failed to garner any success for a long period. Then came his victory at Kempton and he got his form back. He registered his most memorable win in the 2016 Queen Mother Champion Chase when he outclassed top favorite Un de Sceaux despite committing a mistake in the race. The great horse finished his season at Sandown Park after claiming the 2016 Celebration Chase. After winning 18 of his 24 races, he said goodbye to racing in November 2016.
