I admit that I typed 2000 pounds for the weight of a horse. That is all. The weight is not germane to the conversation.You brought the weight subject up not I, so now it's not relevant to the topic all of a sudden?
You only keep bringing it up to divert your inability to keep up. And you try and divert attention to the falsehood of such a bogus statement.
But I do like the fact that you are actually looking things up and trying. It shows effort. Funny effort for the oddest things but effort nonetheless.
Well if you find some one miss representing facts
But I do believe you might have found out by now that horse racing is not a "rich white man's sport" as you so naively thought.I don't know what the percentage is, maybe you'd like to take a stab in the dark at it, and I'll double check it for ya
I see you keep trying to move the point from a generalized statement about horse weight which was completely inconsequential to the conversation.
I suppose if I made a comment about 300 pound linebackers while talking about the steroid abuse in highschool, college and pro sports you would try to move the point that there are not many 300 pound linebackers in high school sports, as usual MISSING THE POINT.
As for determining what the percentage of the sport is "rich white man's sport", with owners from around the world, breeders from nearly everywhere, and of different economics [though it DOES take bucks to feed and care for race horses]. Looking at the 2008 Kentucky Derby field of 20, the split looks like this from what I can glean.
Latin American 3
Now before trying to extrapolate data from that, remember that is the top Grade 1 Stakes Race in the Country. The 20 Three year olds had to win a threshold amount of money just to get into that race. That meant flying the horses around the county to the major feeder races for the Triple Crown.
Kentucky raises about 10,000 foals a year. Many race Grade 2 and 3 tracks where they stay in the same area all year. They are trailered from track to track and don't ever have the goal of the Derby. So the RWG owner formula does not exist for many of them, however they are boarded at the same farms and run the same paddocks and eat the same quality food and enjoy the same love as the likes of Seattle Slew or Secretariat.
