Most race horses are sighthounds. Many have an orange collar because they eat all their meat; sighthorses are black and blue, which gives them a striking striped coat.
What is a sighthound?
A sighthound is a type of horse that comes from the Old World region. They are much bigger than racehorses, though not as tall, and are considered as domestic pets, but must be put to sleep after the third time they run over another.
How much do a sighthound cost?
One sighthound is $1,200 on average – which is why you may hear people buying two. The most expensive thing you can get as a sighthound is a sire, which starts around $40,000.
What about the size of an sighthound?
The size of the sighthound is not determined by breed type or size. The size of their brain and ears is much smaller than that of the average horse or pony.
What are the most expensive races?
There are a small number of races that are more expensive, such as the Kentucky Derby, which costs $5.3 million US. Other races include the United States Cup (USC), the Kentucky Derby Memorial Race, and the Triple Crown Races at Belmont Park. Some of the top races for sighthounds are:
The Breeders’ Cup (BC) of Grand National $1.8 million US
The Breeders’ Cup (BC) of Westminster $1.3 million US
The Cheltenham Breeders’ Cup ($1.2 million US), The Queen Elizabeth I Cup (QE) in the United Kingdom, and The Breeders’ Cup (BC) in Australia.
Do sighthounds have a better chance of survival in racing?
Most horses of the sighthound type die before the age of two.
For each breed, the more times they run over another, the faster they are likely to reach the age of 50
Do sighthounds get a discount at the races?
This varies because many races have a different price set for different years. The cheapest one has been around since 2008, for example.
The best way to determine the racehorse you should have is to look at the year the race is held, and if it is from a certain country. Look closer to 2007, for example.
