Thoroughbred vs Harness Racing
|Thoroughbred racing||Harness racing|
|Jockey rides horse ‘normally’||Sulky (or cart) that holds the jockey is attached to a horse via a harness|
|Race speed at run or gallop||Race speed at trot or pace|
|Track conditions vary||Track conditions vary|
|Race distances range from 4 furlongs to 1.5 miles||Race distance usually one mile|
When it comes to horse racing, there are two main types of racing, Thoroughbred and Harness. There are some major differences between these two and anyone who wishes to start betting on horse racing events should be aware of these differences.
With Harness Racing, a sulky will be used, which is a cart that is attached to the horse via a harness. During Harness raced, the horses are able to trot or pace at any time during the race. Pacing is a bit faster than trotting, however, with both, there is a chance the horse will begin to gallop. If this happens, the horse has to be slowed down by the jockey to avoid being disqualified. The distance of Harness Races is typically one mile and the race will begin with horses behind a motorized gate.
Thoroughbred Racing is one of the exciting forms of racing and the jockey will be riding the horse during the race. All horses can maintain a run and gallop and the races can take place on a variety of surfaces that can affect the performance of the horse, so there are a number of things to consider when betting, including racetrack conditions. The distance of Thoroughbred races can vary and will range from 4 furlongs to 1.5 miles.
