Horse racing, like boxing and wrestling, is among the oldest sports in the world. The relationship between animal and jockey is a bond not found in any other athletic event. Adding to drama of one-thousand-pound animals sprinting toward a photo finish, is the element of gambling and winning (or losing) money on your best hunch. With hundreds of thousands of fans packing horse racing venues across the globe, including celebrities such as the Royal Family.
