Rules of horse racing
A horse race is a competition between horses. A horse’s winnings are based on its value as a winner in one race. The rules for horse racing are very important and must be adhered to. All horses participating in a race must be weighed before the start of the race. The weighing is usually done 15 minutes before the race.
Thoroughbred horses are domestic animals, bred for competitive racing. As a result, their populations are small and the inbreeding rate is high. Inbreeding has been shown to reduce fitness by introducing deleterious recessive mutations. Breeders strive to minimize the effects of inbreeding by selecting for certain SNPs.
Allowance races are generally designed to make the playing field fair. They may be based on number of races won or earnings, or they may be based on state of bred. This type of racing is ideal for connections who want to place their best horse in the best possible race.
Steeplechase races are horse races that require the horses to jump over a series of fences or ditches. These races are mostly held in the United Kingdom, France, Australia, and Ireland.
