Itflourished for thousands of years as the preserve of kings and noblesbut is now a sport enjoyed by millions across the globe.

Theearliest written records trace horse racing back to the ancientGreeks and of course the Romans who were particularly keen onchariot racing.

Theorigins of modern horse racing can probably be traced back to aroundthe 12thCentury when English knights returned from the Crusades with Arabhorses. Over the subsequent centuries many Arab horses werebrought back and inter bred with English horses to produces breedsof speed and stamina.

Placinga wager on the results of the outcome of a race is probably as oldas the sport itself but horse racing first became professionalaround the early 1700s when racing between several horses began onwhich spectators placed bets. Racecourses appeared throughoutEngland and increasing purses were offered to the winners.

TheJockey Club was formed at Newmarket Kalen Ballage Jersey Dolphins , England in 1750 to rule thesport as a central governing body. Certain racecourses weresanctioned and rules drawn up to conduct meetings. The JockeyClub also took steps to regulate the breeding of racehorses and introduced the General Stud Book to record the pedigree of everyfoal born and ensure that only "Thoroughbreds" are allowedto race.

Thoroughbredsare so inbred that the pedigree of every single animal can be tracedback father-to-father to one of three stallions, called the"foundation sires." These stallions were the Byerley Turk,foaled c.1679; the Darley Arabian, foaled c.1700; and the GodolphinArabian Rashaan Evans Jersey Titans , foaled c.1724.

Since1814, five races for three-year-old horses have been designated as"classics." Three races, open to male horses (colts) andfemale horses (fillies), make up the English Triple Crown: the 2 Joseph Noteboom Jersey Rams ,000Guineas, the Epsom Derby (see DERBY, THE), and the St. Leger Stakes.Two races Ronald Jones II Jersey Elite , open to fillies only, are the 1,000 Guineas and the EpsomOaks.
