what is the most common type of racehorse?



  1. 0 Votes

    Mainstream horse racing, like the Triple Crown, are all Thoroughbreds. There are other types of racing that can have different breeds, but Thoroughbred horse racing is the most common. Thoroughbreds are only raced when they are young, so there are programs that work to adopt out these horses for other disciplines when they finish their racing career (if they aren’t going to be used for breeding purposes).

    The thoroughbred horse racing is the most common and there are three founding sires that almost all thoroughbreds can trace back to: the Darley Arabian, the Godolphin, and the Byerly Turk. They were named after their owners and all were take to England where they mated with racing mares. Thorougbreds can travel medium distances at fast paces, requiring a balance between speed and endurance. They may vary in color but the most prevalent ones include bay, chestnut, black, brown, and gray.
