What is the Most Expensive Racehorse in the World?


Amazingly the record for the most expensive racehorse dates back to 1985 when Robert Sangster and some partners paid $13.1 million USD for Seattle Dancer. Seattle Dancer was sired by Nijinsky II and is half brother to Seattle Slew, a Triple Crown winner. One of the reasons the record for the most expensive racehorse hasn't been broken since might be the fact that Seattle Dancer only won twice out of the five races he ran, returning a measly $150,000.00 to the owners in prize money. When it was time to go where all great horses go after their racing career, the stud farm, Seattle Dancer was once again a big disappointment, unable to generate any further revenue.
