I hate it when the jockeys whip them.

I think it's likely a combination of shallow breeding and some tiny fracture they didn't spot (either through carelessness or just too tiny to see) before the race. Thoroughbreds (racehorses) are probably the most delicate of the horse breeds, because they start from fairly small desert-type horses to begin with. Arabs are a /huge/ actor, if I remember my horsebreeding correctly. I keep wishing they'd outbreed to some larger, sturdier animals to get denser bones to go with the muscle.

It's rarely a hit by the whip, but just the crack of the whip.


The sound is signal to run faster.


The people I know who work with horses are very kind folk.
