How do trainers stretch a race Horse's muscles?
You stretch their front legs by pulling them in front of the horse. Then you walk and jog the horse before you gallop to warm up their muscles.
Trainers get the horses to swim for some of the trip for training purposes, but some horses prefer to be on a boat or plane
Race horses have many adaptations. They have stronger back muscles then normal horses to enable them to carry the jockey. Having a stronger back also gives them stronger abdominal muscles. They have longer necks so that they can have a photo finish in a race.
Typically here in the USA a race horse is kept in a stall at a racetrack stable that the trainer or owner rents during the time the horses will be racing at that track. Some horses will be given time off and sent to the owner or trainers farm where they can be turned out and relax.
The poles are there for the jockeys' to know how far they are from the finish line. They are also used by trainers to clock a horses racing fractions.
before a race, horse's names are drawn and the owners/trainers choose what number gate they want their horse to depart from.
The trainers actually approach the jockeys about riding their horses, but if a jockey is offered multiple mounts for the same race, the jockey chooses based on which one he thinks has the best chance of winning.

trainers will start breaking and training the horses as soon as they can. I think they start racing at about 2-3 years of age. hope I helped! Tuxedo-kitten xxx Most start at age 2.
Quarter Horses Can Race Yes, many quarter horses race. I have a button that says "I LOVE QUARTER HORSES" and there are pictures of quarter horses racing. And I also have seen them 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..............
They can be good race horses against other Morgans, but not against Thoroughbreds or Quarter horses.
Twenty horses can race at a time
I am a retired Jockey that had to rate horses in a race every day. It's not something you can just write down for others to read as it is different with every horse.

You are using your legs when in a race, so those muscles are susceptible to "burning," or losing muscle mass.
Horses race for several reasons. One they like to show off to each other and racing around allows them to do this. Another reason is to assert who may be the 'best' or strongest. Lastly horses will race because people ask them to.
Before a race you need to warm up really good to get your muscles warm cause if you dont warm up its a possibility that you might cramp up during your event. warm-up means you need to jog alittle bit and you need to stretch really good and do some drills to warm-up your legs.

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 best way to learn about the world of racing is to volunteer at a local racing stable. Most trainers, whether they train racing horses, cutting horses, ect, start at the bottom and work their way up. Clean stalls, clean tack, groom, exercise or cool down horses that have been worked. There are really no short cuts. And ask questions. Find a mentor. Most horse trainers don't mind passing on knowledge. Be a sponge and… Read More
You have to build a racetrack first. After that you click on create race and drag the horses in that you want to race. Racetracks cost and are expensive to maintain.
I have seen horses race as yearlings and to be in the Kentucky Derby they must be three. It just depends on the race! Most thoroughbreds begin racing at age 2.
