Horses are often seen racing each other in the wild. They obviously love racing. So does this horse. He bolted early and left his rider behind at the start. He finished first, but was probably disqualified. The location is Taree Racecourse, New South Wales, Australia. Note: the horse is flying!
Breed Unknown, however, as it is a racehorse; I assume it is a Thoroughbred.

    I would agree it is probably something like a thoroghbred! Very good tracking skills here! Yes he would have been disqualified! Bet he thought “hmmm I feel lighter for some reason!”

    yes racehorses are thoroughbred, they do do quarterhorse sprint races, however in this case it is most definitely a lovely chestnut thoroughbred. nice capture

    Great capture – and yes, disqualified after all that effort.

    Here in Australia, only Thoroughbreds are allowed to race on our official tracks, unless it is an Arabian Racing Day or Quarter Horse Sprint Race & they use specific tracks .. not Taree I believe. Harness racing is another obvious exception, but that involes a sulky and driver.
