How long is a horse race?

It depends on how professional the horse is. Here is a example: (not a real horse)

Mr. HotShotHorse starts his 2 year old season (the year horses usually start racing) And the track is 1 mile or less. He wins all or most of the races and he gets to advance up in the ranks.

His 3 year old season, the track is 1 mile to 1 1/2

4 it might be 1 3/4 or maybe even up to 2 miles long, which is exactly why you want to breed a horse with great speed and a horse with great distance so the offspring will be fast and will not wear out quickly on long races.

Steeplechase horse will run over fences for a longer distance like 2 1/16 miles to 4 miles or sometimes longer.

What are race horse qualities?

They are normally very "hot" as in they are very easily excitable-not all are, but most are. It is good to have log legs and a long body because this results in a longer stride. You also want a well sloping shoulder, because this helps get a long stride. And a will to win is a huge plus. Heart makes up for many conformation faults.

If two frogs bet 300 dollars on dog racing how much do they win?

Why would frogs have money?!

This depends on which dog wins, if both frogs pick the wrong dog, they wouldn't win anything.

It also depends on the odds of the dog that wins, and whether or not the frogs are allowed to bet in the first place.

If neither of their dogs win, I bet they would be hopping mad.

How do you calculate the payoff on a Trifecta at a pari-mutuel Horse Track?

Generally: Take the total amount wagered in the trifecta pool and multiply it by the takeout rate (a.k.a. commission rate). Subtract this amount from the total amount wagered in the pool. From the amount remaining (the Net pool), subtract the amount of money that was placed on the winning Trifecta combination, leaving you with the Profit pool. Divide the Profit pool by the amount that was bet on the winning combination. Add 1 to the division's resulting amount. Drop the pennies so you're left with the dollars and dimes. This is the payout (price) amount on the winning combination per $1 of winning money.
