Best Answer

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.

What is the name of a group of race horses?

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.
