They don't really have a name for a group of race horses as far as I know. Cause generally when racing, they compete against each other. And it's a solo race for the win. So there is no association with the other horses, like for example a team of basketball players. There is no real name for a pack of race horses or a herde of race horses, or horde of race horses..............
A minimum of three.
There have been several famous race horses over the years. Some of the race horses were Phar Lap, John Henry, and War Admiral.
Horses of courses is a jumping term... like the track is what race horses race on, well a course is what jumpers jump on
It varies a lot you can have 2 horses to 20 horses sometimes more or less depending on if any one dropped out. The Kentucky Derby has 20 horses. But yeah, it's different from race to race. It's rare that there is more than 20 horses, but it happens. Usually 10-20, but sometimes only 2.
21 horses did NOT complete the race. most of which fell at a fence
all race horses have the same birthday January first
The Kentucky Derby has 20 horses. But yeah, it's different from race to race. It's rare that there is more than 20 horses, but it happens. Usually 10-20, but sometimes only 2. But the Grand National has 40 horses.

Depends on how many horses are racing. I'm no pro, but I've seen up to 14 horses racing, which would mean there can be up to 14 starting positions in a race.
there has to be 16 or more runners and the race has to be a handicapp.
