Horse Racing is a competitive sport based on how quickly an individual or multiple horses can outrun each other over the course of a set distance. Horse racing has occurred in ancient civilizations such as Greece and Egypt, and continues to be a heavily observed and practiced sport with an annual market of around 122 Billion. While not always the case, horse racing commonly occurs with jockeys riding atop the horses an an attempt to steer and speed up the horses. Depending on the event, some horse races involve only select breeds, multiple obstacles, or varying distances.
