The Roar’s team of racing experts pooled their knowledge together to produce a comprehensive list of the top 50 Australian racehorses of all time.

The list was compiled across a series of ten articles featuring in depth insight from former Roar racing editor Justin Cinque, Roar expert Andrew Hawkins and The Roar’s unofficial historian Sheek.

The series of ten articles, featuring full analysis of each selection, can be accessed below.

The scoring system was based on a simple 1 to 50 ranking system, where a horse ranked 50th would receive one point while a horse ranked first would receive 50 points. For example, if they were ranked 45th, they were awarded six points, and if they were ranked tenth they received 41 points.
