Does grass grow better in soil or sand or clay?

Grass will grow in most any soil condition, but not clay. Grass is a plant, and it needs soil to be porous enough that water will be able to flow through; thus it will not grow in pure clay. However soils that have a mixture of loam and clay, or sand and clay, or loam and sand, will be suitable enough for grasses to grow in. But there are many species of grasses, and each species have their own specific conditions they like to grow in or grow best in.
