  Texas Monthly June 2004: Ardor in the Court
Racehorse, indeed, is one of the most successful and most colorful silver-tongued devils to grace Texas since God made trial lawyers.
When Racehorse was growing up, his Houston family was so poor that, in Moses-like fashion, they had to leave him in the bulrushes near San Antonio, where his granny—who was just a hair over four feet tall—taught him everything he needed to know while drinking a pint of gin every day.
Racehorse went to a party that night at a company shack on the poor side of town.

 The Thoroughbred Racehorse - Syndicates
The profile of racehorse owners has diversified from merely the ‘landed gentry’ to business proprietors and in some instances to the average man on the street through multiple ownership.
Most racehorse trainers and owners will be only to happy to treat, on occasion, guests to ‘a day as a racehorse owner’ where you visit the yard, to watch the horses work on the gallops first thing in the morning and enjoy a hearty breakfast with the trainer discussing horses strategy plans.
Ask any racehorse owner and they will tell you that owning - in part or whole - a winning racehorse is one of life's greatest joys.

 What are the Different Types of Racehorse Ownership?
This type of ownership is best for individuals who like to keep control of their investments and are willing to put a lot of time and energy into managing the details of racehorse ownership.
The second type of racehorse ownership is Co-Ownership, which is essentially any type of racehorse ownership other than sole ownership.
A lease can be made for a designated period of time - as little as a single race, or for the entire racing career of the horse.

 Mike's Racehorse Theory of Art/ Michael Speaker
As we all know, a racehorse runs down the track and at the end of the day appreciates a good rubdown, a nosebag oats kicks back on a fresh pile hay in his warm paddock.
All he wants to do is engage in the creative process – whether it be paint, sculpture or the latest in multimedia, whatever his chosen area, it is the equivalent of the racehorse’s run down the track.
Neither the racehorse nor the artist is in on the bets taking place in the stands.

 Wrong track sends racehorse owner to jail - National - theage.com.au
THE owner of champion racehorse Testa Rossa was yesterday described as a great businessman who "turned his back on an honest way of life" when he became embroiled in a fraud that cost Victoria University more than $10 million — a role he was jailed for yesterday.
The County Court heard that builder, contractor and prominent racehorse owner John Mario Cappellin has a life expectancy of seven years, having suffered three strokes since 2001.
Judge Coish said his sentence of three years' jail with a non-parole period of 18 months' jail would have been greater were it not for Cappellin's undertaking to testify against his co-accused.

 Wild Animals: Zebra Racehorse
The Racehorse can reach speeds of 45mph during a sprint race, and you have to consider that this is done carrying the weight of a jockey.
I still feel that far more work has been done on racehorses than on zebras and you could be right that racehorses could be much faster than zebras if there were no jockeys.
http://www.indiacar.com/infobank/speed.htm says that the fastest racehorse can reach 72 km (45 miles) per hour, but http://www.sandiegozoo.org/animalbytes/t-cheetah.html says that the fastest racehorse reaches 69 km (43 miles) per hour and http://www.cookingforengineers.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=101 fast racehorses can peak at about 65 km (40 miles) jper hour.

 INHERITANCE AND INTERFACES
However, since a RaceHorse is-a Horse, it is OK for the right-hand side to be of type RaceHorse, as in the above example.
RaceHorse r = new RaceHorse(); f(r); // f's formal parameter h is of type Horse, but the actual // parameter points to a RaceHorse object (3) public static RaceHorse g() { // return a pointer to a RaceHorse object }...
For example, if Horse and RaceHorse both have a field named myValue (i.e., the RaceHorse class hides the myValue field defined by the Horse class), then if variable h is of type Horse, the expression h.myValue always refers to the field defined in the Horse class, even if h actually points to a RaceHorse object.

 Tips for Ex-Racehorse Shopping Online   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Off-the-track Thoroughbreds need to unlearn much of their racehorse training to start a new career as a sport horse.
Until a racehorse has been fully retrained (a process that usually takes at least six months), he's likely to be excitable in group situations.
A racehorse just off the track will probably need three months or more to back off from extreme fitness and readjust his system from the high-energy grain regimen (plus any drugs he may have been on).

There are several different ways in which you can own a racehorse.

 ScienceDaily: What Makes A Fast Racehorse?
Science Daily — Around 80 per cent of modern thoroughbred racehorses have in their pedigree the 18th century horse Eclipse, which went its entire racing career unbeaten.
Two hundred years later the question of what makes a fast racehorse still perplexes trainers and racing fans but researchers at The Royal Veterinary College may have found the answer to this and other questions on animal locomotion.
The research of the Structure and Motion Laboratory at The Royal Veterinary College not only answers questions about the top speed of racehorses but also examines the locomotion of a wide range of animals including humans and may help to design more stable robots and help us to understand how dinosaurs walked.
