Top prize money earners - Australian and New Zealand horses

* denotes still racing

Contents

The criteria for inclusion in the above list are as follows. The purpose of these criteria is to include only horses that should be recognised as being Australasian.

  1. Horse must have earned at least $5,000,000 (AUD) in total career prizemoney according to Racing Australia (http://www.racingaustralia.horse/).
  2. Horse must have earned at least $2,500,000 (AUD) in total career prizemoney in Australian and/or New Zealand races. Example of horse excluded: Elegant Fashion [(Aus), Danewin - Wily Trick (USA)] won $6,813,232 in career prizemoney, however only $842,600 of that was won in Australian races (the remainder was won in Hong Kong).
  3. Horse must have earned $1,000,000 (AUD) in Australia and/or New Zealand races and/or won at least one Group 1 race when officially trained in Australia or New Zealand. Examples of horses excluded: Dunaden [(Fr), Nicobar (GB) - La Marlia (Fr)] won $8,122,328 (AUD) in career prizemoney, of which $5,600,000 was earned in Australian races (including two Australian Group 1 wins). However, as Dunaden was never officially trained in Australia it has not been included. Americain [(USA), Dynaformer (USA) - America (Ire)] won $5,923,677 (AUD) in career prizemoney, and earned more than $2,500,000 in Australian races. Americain was trained in Australia (by David Hayes) for a short period, however won less than $1,000,000 during that time and did not win a Group 1 race during that time.


Below is a (not actively updated) list of approximately 300 Australian racehorses that have won over one million Australian dollars in prize money for their owners.
