How much does a thoroughbred horse cost?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It depends on where you get it from. At auctions they can be as low as $50, at rescues they can be anywhere from $200-$1200, and from breeders they can be as much as $2,000. It depends on the horse's bloodlines, abilities, personality, etc.

Thoroughbreds can also be high-level sport horses, and in that case, as with all horses at that level, can have a value of upwards of $200,000.

Where horse racing is most popular in the world and how?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

No , auto racing and soccer are the most attended sports world wide.

Actually, there are no official statistics for the global attendance of horse racing. However, there is a very strong case to be made that horse racing is, indeed, the most attended sport in the world. Horse racing is very popular across 6 continents and routinely ranks among the most popular sports in those countries where statistics are compiled. In addition to the many large horse racing venues located in/near the world's major cities there is an uncounted universe of smaller tracks serving towns and villages across the globe. Horse racing gains a particular attendance advantage over other sports due to two major factors. Firstly, the legal gambling aspect attracts many people and the betting activity conveniently takes place within the racing facility. Secondly, unlike most other sports, in most countries horse racing knows no off-season. Wherever you are in the world, winter, spring, summer or fall, a horse race is likely within a reasonable driving distance.

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

'Brumby' is a general term for an Australian wild or feral horse. Brumbies are not a specific breed of horse, but descendants of horses that were released, or that escaped, into Australian bushlands when the early settlers arrived.

Brumbies are found throughout Australia, from the harsh outback, to the coastal regions (and Fraser Island, the world's largest sand island), to the Alpine country of southern NSW and northern Victoria.
