Alleged (1974-2000) was a champion American-bred Thoroughbred racehorse best remembered as winning back-to-back Prix de l'Arc de Triomphes in 1977 and 1978. Trained by Vincent O'Brien in Ireland and ridden by Lester Piggott , this front-running horse was undefeated in all but one of his appearances, that being second to Dunfermline in the 1977 St. Leger Stakes. His Timeform rating of 138 marks him out as one of the great thoroughbreds in racing history.
