Why the Thoroughbred was created, how, by whom, and how its progenitors survived war, politics and the ambitions and jealousies of monarchs, noblemen and politicians is the subject of this book.
Designing Speed in the Racehorse is an indispensable reference by Ken McLean, one of the world's foremost bloodstock advisors and pedigree experts. McLean discusses genetic affinities and pedigree patterns, analyzes the pedigrees of important sires and ancestors to isolate elements of speed and stamina, explains what characteristics to look for in a sire, and updates the elite mare list. Breeders will be especially interested in McLean's analysis of the conformation of many of the breed's most illustrious sires and the physical attributes and faults they passed on to their progeny. Best of all, he tells the current sire and dam lines most likely to produce quality racehorses. With his recommendations at hand, today's Thoroughbred breeder has an edge in the competitive world of racing.
This book contains a wealth of classic material dating back to the 1900s on the history of horse racing in England and across the sea in America. Being interesting, informative and at points comical this title has something for anyone that is interested in horse racing.
The Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) Veterinary Departments have enabled an environment suitable to set an international benchmark on a project concept to enhance the welfare of racehorses, based on research using extensive and detailed data collection within an integrated framework. Retrospective analysis of data collected over the past several years has been made available. The approach outlined in this book has two broad objectives. The first is to investigate outcomes of interest using data which has already been collected. Outcomes of interest are likely to include (though not be limited to), variables that influence injury, retirement or performance. The second broad objective is to extend the approach to a more general assessment of the usefulness of different data types and different variables, and the assessment of data collection, collation, analysis and reporting methodology, as well as the development of intervention strategy. This book concludes with a philosophical view point on the veterinary management of thoroughbred racing injuries in which a “think-out-of-the-box” concept in assessing the risk of racehorse injuries is discussed. One outcome of this is an integrated technology approach for tracking horse performance, recently developed by Cambridge Design UK. The integrated technology (flight deck recorder concept) for monitoring trackwork and race performance of racehorses can allow a standardised review of detailed training data and biometric readings from direct measurements of individual horse, to assess the progress of performance and the effect of track conditions. The development of integrated performance tracking technology is mission critical for the worldwide racing industry to optimize horse welfare, safety and racing performance, as well as to enhance the integrity of racing.
Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
Equine Exercise Physiology provides the most up-to-date, in-depth coverage of the basic sciences required for an understanding of the physiology of the equine athlete. This book provides a thorough grounding in the basic physiology of each body system and in particular the responses of each body system to exercise and training. It is the ideal resource for those interested in equine exercise physiology: undergraduate and post-graduate students in exercise science, comparative physiology, biology and veterinary science; veterinary students; horse trainers and owners of sport horses; journalists writing in equine specialty magazines; and interested lay persons. Topics include: the musculoskeletal system and physiology; tendon, ligament and joint physiology; the biomechanics of locomotion; respiratory, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems; metabolism and nutritional management; thermoregulation; hematology and immunology Written by the top experts currently working in the area of equine exercise physiology Designed for those seeking comprehensive information in a digestible format about the basic science of equine exercise physiology, rather than the clinical aspects Over 250 high quality illustrations that amplify and illustrate important points Information available in a readily accessible format.
