The field of the Equine has been in lots of stories recently. From your World Equestrian Games in the Kentucky Horse Farm to the death of Kentucky Derby winner Real Quiet to the retirement of champion filly and ’09 Horse of the Year, Rachel Alexandra that is to be carefully bred to twice Horse of the Year, Curlin, there have been multiple headlines.

All these animals, whether winners of thoroughbred racing or even champions from the styles of equine eventing, can be viewed as elite athletes, albeit not necessarily of the style most people might associate with the word. People recognize that jockeys as well as riders regarding these routines are elite athletes (or even they should), but they often neglect to recognize the identical for the horses themselves.

The particular horses are usually as pampered as many top level athletes are. They may not necessarily sleep upon comfortable memory foam mattresses every evening but assuredly they are sleeping on the actual equine version of a comfortable polyurethane foam mattress. The actual champions tend to be provided with much extra space in their stalls, very much extra goodies for their nourishment or bed linen or very much extra grooming each day.

Rachel Alexandra has been a history producer during her racing career. In 2009, she became the initial filly in order to win the particular Preakness Stakes since 1924, the first filly to acquire the Kentucky Oaks (the filly version of the Kentucky Derby) and to run within the Preakness Stakes Race, much less win and was the initial horse at any time to earn the Preakness title from the thirteenth post placement. While horses go into stud after quitting racing and the owners can make tremendous sums regarding stud fees, fillies like Rachel Alexandra only have 1 chance every year to be carefully bred and have a foal. Clearly Rachel Alexandra’s owners are hoping to have positives happen by breeding the girl to stable mate Curlin in hopes of bringing a lot more racing champions into the globe.

Real Quiet was a winner of the Kentucky Derby and also the Preakness before falling simply short of the racing Triple Crown in the Belmont Stakes, losing by a nose to Victory Gallop. This was the closest to a Triple Crown because Affirmed conquer Alydar in each of the Triple Crown races in 1978.

While the race horses participating in the World Equestrian Games are no where near as well-known as Rachel Alexandra and also Real Quiet they are equally as much elite sports athletes. Not all top notch athletes have to rest on the comfortable king size memory foam bed mattress to perform at the elite degree. For all participants in the Games are truly among the global elite equines.
