Ask @teamaudeladespistes : Do race horses generally have strong stable vices or is it just a common misconception?

Hello Alexia,

No racehorses haven't major weakness coming out of the races. Most commonly, we find some problems of osteoarthritis, old tendinitis. We even see horses coming out fractured races but who find a second career after a period of convalescence adapted. There is no difference in weakness (when there is one) between a sport horse and a racehorse.

All The Best,
