Horse racing is a sport in which horses compete for prize money. The first horse to cross the finish line wins the race. Unlike many sports, there is no point scoring system for horse races. This makes it a highly competitive and exciting competition.
In horse racing, each animal is considered a racehorse and may be entered in a variety of races. There are also specific rules for each type of horse.
There are many different types of races for horses, ranging from sprints to long distance races. There are also standardized races for different age groups.
A race is generally a group of horses that run together on the same track and usually have similar characteristics. Some races are based on how much weight the horses carry while others are based on how well they perform in previous races.
The most common races are for three-year-olds and four-year-olds. However, there are some exceptions to this rule.
For example, in the United States, there are a number of races for three-year-olds that are called “Baby Races.”
A horse is in this position when he is well placed within striking distance, but does not have the surge to win.
This term is most often used to describe a horse that was in sharp contention during the late stages of a race and failed to produce the needed surge to win.
It is also sometimes used to describe a horse that was well placed during the early stages of a race, but could not gain further on the leaders and finished the race evenly.
Generally, this term should be avoided in the start line as there are many horses that break very slowly and are noted as good for all but a few lengths behind the rest of the field.
There are a few other terms that should be used at the start and during the race to help you identify a potential winner or loser. These terms are shown below and can be found by clicking on the button below.
The first of these terms is BROKE ALERTLY and should be used only at the start of a race. A horse that breaks alertly is a few lengths faster than the rest of the field.
A horse that breaks alertly is in a position to get a great jump on the leaders when the race begins. The horse should have a great stride and will usually be moving fastest near the finish.
Another term that should be used is BROKE SHARPLY and should be used only when a horse breaks MUCH faster than the rest of the field. There should be only one or two horses that break this way in a race.
These terms should be used only to describe a horse that is in a position to win a race and he is unable to do so. This can be caused by a variety of factors including a poor rider, lack of speed or inexperienced jockey.
