“We realized this is a huge, massive industry right off the beaten path. This is like an NFL combine of watching horses run,” said Cummings, the former Madden designer snickering at the irony of it all. “We immediately went back and decided we had to change the breeding part of the game, where you end up with a foal that you have to train, and take care of and raise.” Still, last year, Cummings scratched together something and showed it to friends. “I put the horse on the track and it had a whip mechanic and I asked, ‘Does this have any legs?'” Well, yeah.
Sprinting exercises are appropriate for training two-year-old racehorses, but the number is limited by psychological factors as well as physical. A horse’s skeletal system adapts to the exercise it receives. Because the skeletal system does not reach full maturity until the horse is at least four years of age, young racehorses often suffer injuries. In most horse races, entry is restricted to certain breeds; that is, the horse must have a sire and a dam who are studbook-approved individuals of whatever breed is racing. For example, in a normal harness race, the horse’s sire and dam must both be pure Standardbreds. The exception to this is in Quarter Horse racing, where an Appendix Quarter Horse may be considered eligible to race against Quarter Horses.

Where gambling is allowed, most tracks offer parimutuel betting where gamblers’ money is pooled and shared proportionally among the winners once a deduction is made from the pool. In some countries, such as the UK, Ireland, and Australia, an alternative and more popular facility is provided by bookmakers who effectively make a market in odds. This allows the gambler to ‘lock in’ odds on a horse at a particular time (known as ‘taking the price’ in the UK). Parimutuel gambling on races also provides not only purse money to participants but considerable tax revenue, with over $100 billion wagered annually in 53 countries.
