Horse Racing is an age old sport where a group of horses are led by their riders (Jockeys) along a predetermined course. The horse to reach the finish first or in the shortest time is considered the winner. The race course can vary in shape, size and even the type of turf the horses run on. There are races that involve jumps and other obstacles and there are races where the horse is attached to a chariot which they pull along the course.
