Ask an owner or punter about the most thrilling encounter they’ve ever had with a horse they’ve owned. They’ll tell you it happened after their horse won a race. Ask every horse owner about the most uplifting experience they’ve had in their career, and they’ll tell you about standing with a cup of coffee in hand, shorn up against the cold with the sun, trying to see through the clouds to watch their horse in early morning gallops. That is what an owner values, regardless of how much the racehorse is worth or what the breeding is.
How Much is a Thoroughbred Racehorse Worth – There are two sayings in Horse Racing. The first is that a horse does not know what the bookmakers are betting to win a race, and the second is that a horse does not know the price its owner paid for it. No matter how meticulous a breeder is to ensure that a horse is well bred and therefore able to fetch high prices at the Yearling Sale, sometimes it works brilliantly and sometimes fails spectacularly.
If the horse wins races and becomes an equine superstar, the excitement of all those victories will be unlike anything an owner has ever experienced. Of course, the benefit of owning a thoroughbred superstar is that after their racing career is over, a Stud Farm will acquire that superstar and breed with them, completing the cycle.
How do I Find my Racehorses’ History
Every 10 minutes, somewhere on the earth, a horse race takes place. A punter may watch live streaming of practically all these races and wager on them if willing to pay for the opportunity. Of course, all bettors must relax at some time, and sleep revitalises the brain in preparation for the following round of races. The horses, of course, are the significant adversaries in these various daily race meets across the world, and they are all bred at separate Stud Farms, each having a particular history about their breeding ancestry.
Thoroughbreds are known to have lip tattoos, and although the tattoos grow more challenging to read as the horse ages, they serve as a kind of identification, allowing the owner to get access to the horse’s family. Some horses may be branded with a farm tattoo rather than a specific set of characters that would guide the owner to the horse’s breeder and offer lineage information.
A microchip is often inserted in a horse, but finding and reading it requires a specialised scanner. DNA testing may also help identify the horse’s father and dam in some instances. This microchip will contain crucial information in establishing the horse’s ancestry.
Another option to learn about a horse’s background is to look up its name on the breeders’ registration website. A photograph, the names of current or past owners, the horse’s genealogy, and the Breeders Stud Farm facts usually are accessible.
Primary Duties of a Stud Farm’s Horse Racing Analyst
- Preparation of historical ratings, as well as pre-and post-race rating analyses for international thoroughbred racing
- Racing studies and history race analysis for the horses presently being considered to be purchased.
- Form/Rating analysis and access to historical data for horses’ form and ratings in a race.
- Preparation of race views pertains to pace and pacemakers and associated analyses.
- Race form analysis, including pre-and post-race analysis, as well as associated analytical ability to “read a race,” such as analysing race videos and writing horse remarks/race summaries and video comments
- The use of sectional time analysis. Sectional Timing provides in-race speed statistics per runner during a race, enabling intriguing storylines to emerge even before the horses cross the finish line, with the data analysing how a race is run rather than
