Had no idea re Noor.  I thought Citation was only beaten a couple of times but this guy


clearly had the wood on him even though the weights heavily favoured him in most of the early clashes.


He must have been pretty damned good because Citation is usually rated No 3 by most Americans in the all time best list.

Fame attaches to very few and can be fleeting as we all know.  For example in 1950 the Daily Racing Form's outstanding horses (published in the American Racing Manual) was confined to 19 horses the most recent being foaled in 1945 but 7 foaled in the decade before publication.  The 19 we  Salvator (1886) Domino (1891) Sysonby (1902) Colin (1905) Exterminator (1915) Man o'War (1917) Gallant Fox (1927) Equipoise (1928) Seabiscuit (1933) War Admiral (1934) Whirlaway (1938) Alsab (1939) Count Fleet (1940) Stymie (1941 ) Armed (1941) Busher (1942) Gallorette (1942) Assault (1943) and Citation (1945).  By 1980 and now called the 20th Century Hall of Fame the number had been reduced to just 14 giving the boot to the 19th century stars Salvator and Domino. The 14 being Sysonby (1902), Colin (1905) Man o'War (1917) Exterminator (1915) Equipoise (1928)  Count Fleet (1940), Citation (1945) (only seven survived the cut from 1950) and the seven newbies Tom Fool (1949) Native Dancer (1950) Nashua (1952) Swaps (1952) Kelso (1957) Forego 1970) Secretariat (1970) although only 2 were foaled between 1957 and say 1975 (4YO for 1980 edition of the American Racing Manual published by DRF).  So throw out those two Seabiscuit movies. By the time we get to 2005 the list of the great horses of the 20th century has expanded to 27. Of the original 19 from the 1950 edition only five made the 2005 list and they we  Colin, Exterminator, Man O'War, Equipoise Count Fleet and Seabiscuit (back in favour so retrieve those movies).  I am not suggesting Noor should be there.  Rather it helps if you are a hero in living memory which is the point of selecting notable horses that youngsters like us may have overlooked.     

Cheers

Brigadier Gerard (GB) 1968                                             
Bay horse                                             
Queen's Hussar (GB) 1960 (March Past (GB) 1950) - La Paiva (GB) 1956 (Prince Chevalier (FR) 1943)                                             
Countries raced: UK                                             
18 starts, 17 wins, 1 second, 0 thirds.  Win % 94.4, Place % 100.0.                                             
                                             
CAREER EARNINGS                                             
England earnings in GBP         GBP 253,089.85                                    
                                             
Worldwide earnings in United States dollars (USD)*         USD 620,334                                    
Worldwide earnings in United Kingdom pounds (GBP)         GBP 253,089.85                                    
Worldwide earnings in French francs (FRF)*         FRF 3,223,903                                    
* Worldwide earnings are calculated by converting the British pound at the average of Spot Sterling  Close for GBP 1.00 to the USD or FRF as published in the (London) Times or (London) Daily Telegraph for the race date or a previous day if the race date is not a trading day.                                             
                                             
First place prizemoney for each race appears at the end of each race record for which Brigadier Gerard placed first.  These amounts are based on figures published in the (London) Times or (London) Daily Telegraph.   These newspapers do not publish place prizemoney.                                               
I have calculated the second place prizemoney for the Benson and Hedges Gold Cup as being £9,171.85.  This figure is 20% of the total prizemoney.  I have assumed first prizemoney of £30,955 is 67.5% of the total as published in the (London) Times and Daily Telegraph and is split: 1st 67.5%, 2nd 20% 3rd 10%, 4th 2.5%.                                                 
My total for all 18 races is about £65.00 higher than the total prizemoney on wikipedia and about £63.00 higher that the amount on pedigreequery.                                              
The Biographical Encyclopaedia of British Flat Racing has a total for 17 wins that bears no relationship to any other figure I can find so I can only suggest there was an error in publishing noting that one of the authors of that book was Roger Mortimer who reported for the (London) Times when Brigadier Gerard raced.                                             
The (London) Daily Telegraph, Wed 21 June 1972, page 1 reported that the Brigadier had won £110,431 after 13 starts and that equals the total of the individual race prizemoney amounts set out below for the first 13 starts.  I could find no information in that paper or the (London) Times of his total earnings after his 18th start.                                              
                                             
Nothing I have read in the Telegraph or Times newspapers at the time his retirement was announced put him among one of the greats.  Perhaps it is the understated British style of reporting (Bruce McAvaney where were you). The discussion seems to have been about him being syndicated to stand at stud in England when the owners might have got more if the owners had tried to syndicate him internationally (which I infer means selling him to the USA).  He could win on heavy to good (fast) and over 12f. (2400m.) so I would rate him better than Frankel but behind Ribot. On reading some of the race reports where the ground was officially rated as good one gets the impression that the weather was so bad that the track must have been at least slow.

* Brigadier Gerard also broke the old course record in running second.  Roberto was ridden by Panamanian American Braulio Baeza who was specifically brought over to ride Roberto.  Some thought that the front running style he brought to the race contributed to the Brigadier Gerard's defeat. Newspaper commentary before the race centred on the Brigadier equalling Ribot's winning streak of 16 which I interpret as the benchmark for being one of the all time greats of the modern era. It seems many could not believe Roberto was capable of beating the Brigadier.  The Brigadier seemingly redeemed himself at his next start by breaking the course record.

The problem with Brigadier Gerard was that he was born the same year as Mill Reef who the Brits did regard as an out and out champion.

And both Brigadier Gerard and Mill Reef were the year after Nijinsky.

Brigadier Gerard's record is very impressive.

Thanks for all the race records, Tim. I'm sure I'm not the only one really enjoying reading about some of the past champions.

The problem with Mill Reef is the only time they met, the Brigadier beat him.

True. However, with the English fascination with  mile and a half racing, most in England would have  considered that  Mill Reef's  Derby and Arc wins put him above the Brigadier.

Analysis of horses that won five or more group / grade 1 races that first raced in Europe      
      
The grading classification was first applied in 1971 to races conducted in Great Britain, Ireland, France and Italy and in 1972 to Germany.      
For the purposes of the analysis below all races classified as group 1 in 1971 (or 1972 re Germany) were deemed to have been a group 1 race prior to those years.       
The total number of races in Europe deemed to have been classified as group 1 races plus the total number of actual group 1 races conducted was  8,329 to the end of the 2018 year.        
All horses that one won five of these races were selected.        
Added to this number were selected horses that won 0 to 4 in group 1 races in Europe but were thought to have won group/grade races outside Europe after commencing racing in Europe.  Of these there were four horses that won all their group / grade 1 races outside Europe of which only one, Bald Eagle, competed before the introduction of the pattern system.             
      
In total I have so far found there are 128 horses that won 5 or more group 1 races.  Of these 50 are deemed to won five or more group 1 races (retrospectively) and 78 won five or more group 1 races under the pattern system.        
 Italian racing has been on the decline since the 1970s and this may affect the number of European group 1 winners (they need another Tesio to lift their profile).       
I will have missed some horses or got some wrong however it is a useful starting point for a different look at top European performers:      
The earliest horse to feature was Gladiateur (FR) 1862 followed by Boiard (FR) 1870 and Jongleur (FR) 1874.      
A surprising omission was Jim and Tonic (FR) 1994 who raced all over the place for 13 wins and set an earnings record for a French bred horse (wikipedia) yet his only group 1 win was the 1999 Hong Kong Cup.      
      
The top European group 1 winners a      
Goldikova (IRE) 2005   14   
Exceller (USA) 1973   11   
Dahlia (USA) 1970   10   
Miesque (USA) 1984   10   
Frankel (GB) 2008   10   
La Camargo (FR) 1898   9   
Triptych (USA) 1982   9   
Pretty Polly (IRE) 1901   8   
Ksar (FR) 1918   8   
Brantome (FR) 1931   8   
Tantieme (FR) 1947   8   
Allez France (USA) 1970   8   
Rock of Gibraltar (IRE) 1999   8

All the rest won seven or less.      
      
Undefeated horse to make the list of five or more group 1 winners a      
Ormonde (GB) 1883      
Nearco (ITY) 1935      
Ribot (GB) 1952      
Zarkava (IRE) 2005      
Frankel (GB) 2008      
      
Of the 50 horses that are deemed to won five or more group 1 races (before the pattern era) the country of birth was:       
      
Country of birth   Number   Percentage
France   26   52.00%
United Kingdom   14   28.00%
Ireland   1   2.00%
USA / Canada   4   8.00%
Germany   2   4.00%
Italy   3   6.00%
TOTAL   50   100.00%
The Canadian representative was Nijinsky II (CAN) 1967.      
      
Of the 79 horses that won five or more group 1 races  in the pattern era the country of birth was:    
   
Country of birth   Number   Percentage
France   12   15.19%
United Kingdom   16   20.25%
Ireland   27   34.18%
USA   17   21.52%
Germany   7   8.86%
Italy   0   0.00%
TOTAL   79   100.00%
(updated 10 Fed 2019 to increase number from 78 to 79 and move another from UK to Ireland)

There is very little information on the internet about quite a few of the French bred horses before the pattern racing era.  Chasing the detail should keep me busy for years.      
      
By way of comparison with Europe 187 Australasian horses have won 5 or more group 1 races of which about 77 raced under the pattern system introduced in 1978/1979 (some raced before and after the change).  To paraphrase tontonan perhaps this reflects the institutionalised nature of racing in Australia (and New Zealand).      
And I have found that in North America just over 170 horses achieved 5 grade 1 wins of which 54 raced before the pattern regime was introduced in the USA (this information is a a few years out of date).

Sobig - thanks re Rock of Gibraltar - I did a quick check of the candidates against their major wins on their wikipedia page and pedigreequery stakes wins.  His win in the Breeders Cup was not listed as major win on his wikipedia page although one G3 win was.  That win is listed in pedigreequery.   Missed that one somehow.

LANDO (GER) 1990   
                                                   
Bay horse                                                         
Acatanengo (GER) 1982 (Sumuru (GER) 1974) - Laurea (IRE) 1983 (Sharpman (IRE) 1976)                                                         
Countries raced: Germany, France, Italy, USA, Japan                                                         
23 starts, 10 wins (7 x G1), 2 seconds, 1 third.  Win % 43.5, Place % 56.5.                                                          
Retired as Europe's earnings record holder measured in USD passing All Along (FR) 1979 .  All Along continued to hold the European GBP and FRF earnings records.                                                         
                                                         
Germany earnings in German marks (DEM) #   DEM 2,022,800.00   Starts 17: 7-2-1-7                                                   
France earnings in French francs (FRF) ##   FRF 400,000   Starts 2: 0-0-0-2                                                   
Italy earnings in Italian lira (ITL) ###   ITL 562,500,000   Starts 2: 2-0-0-0                                                   
United States earnings in United States dollars (USD)   USD 0.00   Starts 1: 0-0-0-1                                                   
Japan earnings in Japanese yen (JPY)   JPY 135,360,000   Starts 1: 1-0-0-0                                                   
# German marks amounts found at german-racing.com                                                         
## 'france-galop' has published race earnings in euros which I have converted into FRF at the rate of €1 = 6.55957 francs (the rate used at the changeover to euros on 1 January 1999 - that rate was used by france-galop to convert FRF to euros).  The FRF amount is then converted into other currencies.                                                          
### Italian lira earnings found at galopp-seiger.de                                                         
                                                         
Worldwide earnings in German marks (DEM)*   DEM 4,563,310.74                                                      
Worldwide earnings in British pounds (GBP)*   GBP 1,955,391.12                                                      
Worldwide earnings in French francs (FRF) *   FRF 15,687,796.25                                                      
Worldwide earnings in United States dollars (USD)*   USD 3,055,493.08                                                      
Worldwide earnings in Australian dollars (AUD)*   AUD 4,233,292.39                                                      
Worldwide earnings in Japanese yen (JPY)*   JPY 309,829,894                                                      
* Based on Reserve Bank of Australia (rba.gov.au.statistics/…) daily indicative exchange rates as published for the date of the race or the previous trading day if the date falls on a non-trading day.                                                         
                                                         
For sake of completeness I have calculated the DEM and FRF equivalent amounts at euro changeover date of 1 January 1999 (slight variations occur due to the currency used)                                                         
Worldwide earnings in euros at 1 January 1999 where DEM 1.95583 = € 1.00      EUR 2,333,183.73                                                   
Worldwide earnings in euros at 1 January 1999 where FRF 6.55957 = € 1.00       EUR 2,391,589.12                                                   
Comparison with other websites:                                                         
 'galopp-sieger.de' earnings    DEM 5,657,829.00   EUR 2,892,803.00                                                   
 'german-racing.com' earnings   DEM 5,343,076.00   No euro equivalent                                                   
 'france-galop.com' earnings      EUR 2,838,573.00                                                   
 'racingpost.com' earnings for Starts 19: 8-1-1-9   GBP 2,068,342.00   No euro equivalent                                                   
The largest earnings errors seem to arise from conversion of ITL and JPY amounts to GBP, DEM and EUR equivalent amounts.                                                            
                                                         
RACING RECORD                                                         
Earnings in local currency appear at the end of each race record.                                                           
Because of the significant variances in earnings amounts on other websites I have also published the local currency amounts in AUD, USD, FRF, DEM and JPY at the end of each race record.

ATHENAGORAS (GER) 1970                        
Dark bay or brown horse                        
Nasram (USA) 1960 (Nasrullah (GB) 1940) - Avenida (GER) 1959 (Neckar (GER) 1948)                        
Countries raced: Germany, France      

Starts: 28: 9 wins, 7 placings (see note from Birkhahn posted below)                  
                        
Starts found to date: 18                        
Group 1 wins: 5                        
Prizemoney in 18 starts found: DEM 838,140  estimated - all in Germany.                        
For a horse that won 5 group 1 races in Germany I thought there might have been more detail.                          
He does not make it into the German turf-times list of legends - 'https://www.turf-times.de/s/1/galopp-legenden'                        
 'pedigreequery' suggests he had 18+ starts                        
This is the best I can do so if anyone has further information about his career please let me know.                        
Cheers

I found an article in a October 1973 edition of Der Spiegel on Athenagoras that refered to his engagement in 'the most valuable German race in Cologne this coming Sunday' that is not on his record.  It could be the missing 18th start.

The race was the Preis von Europa run at Cologne.   It is noted elsewhere that the horse was hopeless at Cologne and I assume that judgement was made on the basis of more than one race.   There may be other Cologne failures but I would start with the 1973 Preis von Europa and assume he was unplaced.

Tontonan - thanks

The Times (London) commentary of Mon 15/10/1973 has Athenagoras (a 1/1F) finishing '11th of 14' in a field of 15.  He led around the turn. Race was worth over 48,000 pounds which made it one of Europe's richest races.  The Times runs a bit hot and cold on euro racing  - perhaps it depends on the editor at the time and the budget. 

cheers

The Der Spiegel article found by Tonto also has Athenagoras having 7 starts up to and including (?) the Bavarian Classic. 12 starts in total to October 1973 so that gives at least 21 or 22 starts.

A later article from 1980 gives the following assessment of his qualities as a stallion - The Zoppenbroicher Derby winner and stallion Athenagoras is indeed considered a tender lover, but he spurns mares, who are older than twelve

Keep them coming, Tim. I'm enjoying finding out about those European horses.

I have about 5 years worth of European, Japanese and American horses in the pipeline but i doubt I will ever get to the bottom of the french and italian horses unless I win tattslotto.  At present I am concentrating on the lesser known horses to find out what i don't know.  The popular horses are fairly easy to find stuff on.  It interesting to read the newspaper comments after a loss and often the jockey is blamed - eg Piggott stuffed up a few.  I am adding them in as notes to the record as I go.

Hello,
I read with interest your listing of "German Champion Race Horses".
Maybe I can help with some addings.

Athenagoras (Nasram-Avenida by Neckar), darkbrown, bred by the "Zoppenbroich Stud" in 1970, he ran from 2-6 years, with 28 starts,
9 wins and 7 placings. Trainer was Sven von Mitzlaff.

He won the "German Derby" in 1973, with 2 1/4 lengths, short head, 1/2 lenghts, in record time of 2:28,8 min,, btw the same time as Nereide (unbeaten filly, won German Derby in 1936)

Mondrian (Surumu-Mole by Espresso), chestnut, bred by M. Becher/J.H. Pavenstedt in 1986. He ran from 2- 5 years, 26 starts, 12 wins, 6 placings.
 Trainer was Uwe Stoltefuss

He ran second in the "German Derby" in 1989, but was awarded the race, after a protest (the winner Taishan had obstructed  Mondrian in the last 100 meters before the finish post), time 2:33,7 min, with (Taishan)1 3/4 lenghts, 2 1/2, 5

1991 he was sent to Trainer Paul Cole in England where he started 3 times without succes. His last race was the "Grosser Preis von Baden" (unplaced)

Lando (Acatenango-Laurea by Sharpman), brown, bred by the "Ittlingen  Stud" in 1990, He ran from 2-5 years, 23 starts, 10 wins, 5 placings
Trainer was Heinz Jentzsch (more than 30times Champion Trainer in Germany)

He won the "German Derby" in 1993, in record time 2:26,8 min, 1 1/4 lenghts,  1 3/4 , 1 . His 'runner up' was "Monsun".

with kind regards from Germany, Birkhahn
P.S. I went to the races at Baden-Baden (Iffezheim) when Mondrian started in his final race. I have to say, he was only a shadow of his former self.
Don't Forget to look at my reply at tzhe Topic "Wellenspiel".

Done a quick stock take on internationals transferred to this thread.  John Henry and Spectacular Bid both on page 68 of the old thread not transferred to this thread.  Also I think the 'Rhinegold' in the index should be 'Rheingold'.

DRF includes USD 6,087 as prizemoney for running 13th in the 1982 Japan Cup.  I have found no evidence that prizemoney was paid beyond fifth place in that year so it is not included in the career earnings.

On 30 August 1981 John Henry passed Affirmed's career earnings total of USD 2,393,818 set 6 October 1979 when he won USD 600,000 for first in the Arlington Million taking his career earnings to USD 2,464,510.                                       
On 10 October 1981 John Henry passed Spectacular Bid's career earnings total of USD 2,781,608 set 20 September 1980 when he won USD 340,800 for first in the Jockey Club Gold Cup taking his career earnings to USD 2,805,310 a North American record.                                       
John Henry retired after winning the Ballantine's Scotch Classic on 13 October 1984, earning USD 740,000 for first, with career eanings of USD 6,591,860 a North American record.

RACING RECORD
Earnings for each race appears at the end of each record except for 1978 (2YO year) where I do not have all the details. This does not affect the date when career earnings records were set as the total earnings for 1978 are known.
Margins shown are for first to third except for his third start where the margins are for first to fourth.
Odds where shown include the $1.00 stake unlike in the USA where only the dividend is shown.
