The Derby is for 3 YO's ONLY!
You get your money back for the horse or horses that are scratched from the race. if you only bet 3 horses in your trifecta, then you get the entire amount back.
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.
When buying a race horse, you need to look for 3 important things and make sure the horse has those, which are presence, balance and temperament. Irish race horses are some of the best race horses in the world because they have those 3 things.
Race horses only have a couple of speeds, fast and faster. During a race the horse uses the fastest gallop he has. Lope, canter or gallop, they are all a three-beat gait.
They can be good race horses against other Morgans, but not against Thoroughbreds or Quarter horses.
In any horse race, bettors are free to bet on as many horses as they would like. Why? Because it does not make sense to bet on too many of the horses, because only one each will win, place, and show. An oversimplified example, but one that illustrates the point: Imagine there are 10 horses in the race, each paying 3-1 to win, 1-1 to place, and 1-3 to show. If you bet on more than 3 horses, you'll lose money since only one of them will win at 3-1 and the others will lose.
Twenty horses can race at a time
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.
This only applies to racing Thoroughbreds, I think its because they want the horses to be as old as they can to race
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..............
NO, people also like to race Quarter horse, Mules, Arabs and other breeds. No, most common race horses are thoroughbreds, but Quarter horses have also been known to do well. (There are many other breeds that race to.)
There have been several famous race horses over the years. Some of the race horses were Phar Lap, John Henry, and War Admiral.

This could literally be race with only three horses or more likely a race where there are three contenders who are considered the most likely to win.
Horses of courses is a jumping term... like the track is what race horses race on, well a course is what jumpers jump on
for most horses yes but every horse is different so it depends on the horse
all race horses have the same birthday January first
I assume you are speaking of the Kentucky Derby. The Derby is a race is for 3-year-old thoroughbreds only. It is open to colts, geldings and fillies.
thoroughbreds are used for racing- they have skinnier and longer legs made for running. quarter horses race 2, but they do barrel racing and only run 1/4 of a mile. i think thoroughbreds race anywhere from 3/4 of a mile to 2 miles
Iris this is to prove my point."Yes he does ride race horses
The horses that race in the Derby are Thoroughbred racing horses.
the most wins for anyone-trainer, jockey, or owner is Calumet Farms has won with 8 of there horses (horses can only race once as a 3 yro)
it all depends on the race.
