Horse racing

Horse racing is an equestrian performance sport, typically involving two or more horses ridden by jockeys (or sometimes driven without riders) over a set distance for competition. It is one of the most ancient of all sports, as its basic premise – to identify which of two or more horses is the fastest over a set course or distance – has been unchanged since at least classical antiquity.

Amazing video to watch of Secretariat running the final stretch of the Kentucky Derby. Loved the story about his man actually meeting this wonderful horse.

These athletes are capable of reaching speeds over 40 mph and stride lengths close to 30 feet. They have both the capabilities and the heart to win. The X-factor, or the desire to run, can explain some of the amazing horses known to the sport, including the 1973 Triple Crown Winner whose heart was more than twice the size of an average Thoroughbred's.

Today, it is know as the Sport of Kings. Many beautiful athletes have erupted from the growing sport, including: Man O' War, Seabiscuit, Seattle Slew, Zenyatta and the unforgettable Secretariat.
