What is the average life span of a race horse?

Life span is pretty much the same as normal horses (18-25years) but they can face challenges in their joints, as well as mental problems because of harsh training. If you mean to ask how long do they race, that is around 1 or 2 years because they start at about 1 or 2 years old.
