Horse racing What's horse racing?
One of the oldest sports in the world, horse racing is a sport to find out which of a certain group of horses is quickest.

The owners of the horses give them to people called trainers to look after, who make sure the horse is healthy and as quick as possible ready to win races.

The trainers and owners pay highly skilled horse riders called jockeys to ride the horses in races, and the best jockeys are able to get the horses to run even quicker.
