    Default Arabian/Quarter horse vs. TB racing

    I am doing some research for a paper and would like to discuss breakdowns in arabian and quarter horse racing versus thoroughbred racing. What are everyones thoughts and does anyone know of any articles about this? TIA!

    Anyone? Bueler?

    I am wanting to see if there are any differences in how the horses are started/warmed-up in comparison to thoroughbred racehorses and how many injuries there are for the 'other' group. This includes trotters.

    You might try contacting the ARC for the Arabian information you're seeking.

    The only thing I would caution is that there are fewer racing Arabs than TBs, so raw numbers at least there should be fewer breakdowns. I'd also leave out the Standardbreds as the weight-bearing is completely different (plus racing in harness creates a whole other potential for kinds of injuries.)
