RE: [RC] TB Racing, Soundness, Speed, Hooves - Kristen A Fisher

Oh I meant to add that Arab racing will never be the size/scope of TB racing
but that's probably a good thing. 

In 2005 there were 7,000 Arabs registered with AHA, vs. 35,000 TBs born that

Actually Arabian racing is alive and well: 
http://www.arabianracing.org/. They are promoting themselves 
heavily and have some pretty good purses with not a lot of 
competitors. They race at 22 tracks across US and Canada.

Same as TB's 1 Jan for Arabs birthdate. There is not much Arabian 
racing anymore. The only one in the East is Delaware.
Tampa dropped it one Arab race of the week a couple years ago since 
they were not getting any more that 2 or 3 entries.
There are a few other tracks around the country that have 
Arab racing 
but it is on the decline.

At one time the UAE and Saudi's were big into Arab racing. 
They've all gone into TB racing big time and don't support 
Arab racing 
much anymore.

Arabians are not allowed to race until they are 3. I am 
not sure if 
this is calendar 3 or Jan 3
