All About Horse Racing
Based on artwork found at archaeological sites, people have been racing horses in an organized manner for over 4000 years. With such longevity as a spectator event, it is a near certainty that there have been horse racing tickets for sale for thousands of years. There were even horse racing events included in the earliest Olympics on record.
Modern flat races revolve almost exclusively around a single breed of horse - the thoroughbred. The breed was developed from three sires owned by three men named Robert Byerly, Thomas Darley, Lord Godolphin. Two Arabians and a Turk of outstanding quality, the three horses were taken to England and formed the nucleus of a breeding program that resulted in today's thoroughbred. A slender and graceful animal, the ideal thoroughbred is built for a combination of speed and endurance that makes them perfect for mid-length races.
In the United States, the first confirmed horse racing tickets for sale were for a race held in Salisbury, New York at the newly completed Newmarket race course.
Another style of horse racing is the endurance race. Where the races most people picture immediately are sprints, the endurance races are marathons. The modern endurance race was organized and codified in California in 1955, but for virtually every army in history that relied on horses for transportation, training and testing programs were in place to ensure that horses bought for the purpose were capable of performing their duty. The testing for these programs was virtually identical to what we today consider an equine endurance race. Read More

The next style of modern horse racing is the quarter horse race. The name of the race was coined after the length - an even quarter of a mile. As horses were bred specifically to perform well in such races to the extent that they became a distinct breed, the breed was also named after the race. Quarter races were frantic runs through terrain that required constant stopping and starting, like city streets. Because of this, the ideal quarter horse is bred for explosive acceleration from a standstill.
The last major type of horse race is one that most do not even think of when horse racing is mentioned. This type of race is the steeplechase. Most popular in Europe, a steeplechase is a long distance race with fences and ditches of various sizes.
