Since the dawn of time, when humanity first scrambled upon the horse, racing has been a sport enjoyed by both rich and poor, educated and illiterate, young and old. Known officially as "The Sport of Kings", this exciting horse sport spans venues from turf to dirt tracks to hurtles, and a variety of distances ranging from short, explosive quarter mile tracks to races covering miles at a stretch. Specialized breeds were developed over the centuries to produce racehorses that could either run the farthest (the Arabian), the fastest (the Thoroughbred), the quickest (the American Quarter Horse), or out-trot anything on four legs (the Standardbred). The result was the promotion of an unparallel level of refinement in the selection of various racing bloodlines that are closely controlled by governing bodies overseeing the now multi-billion dollar racing-breeding industry.
