Racing trials of speed between two or more horses. It involves races among harnessed horses with different gaits (pacers and trotters), saddled thoroughbreds along a flat track, and saddled horses over an obstacle course (steeplechase). Horse races are recorded as early as 1500 B.C. in Egypt, but the organized sport dates from 12th-cent. England.
In the U.S. the institution of legalized pari-mutuel betting has made horse racing the leading spectator sport. In the U.S. the most important flat-racing events (all for three-year-olds) are the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont Stakes, known as the Triple Crown.
"There seem to be but three ways for a nation to acquire wealth: the first is by war, as the Romans did, in plundering their conquered neighbors - this is robery; the second by commerce, which is generally cheating; the third by agriculture, the only honest way, wherein a man receives a real increase of the seed thrown into the ground, in a kind of continual miracle, wrought by the hand of God in hid favor, as a reward for his innocent life and his virtuous industry."
