You'll never get a chance to race Merlin. He is a rescue horse. He was an outlaw when I got him 8 years ago. He loved to race, and race, and run away with the rider. He has not raced the first horse since I got him. Nor has he cantered the first stride since I got him. He can stay up with the speed demons, but I always keep him one nose back from the leader of the pack. I can slow him down anytime I want. But he is never allowed to win. Always one nose back.
Except when we are pin balling, then he is usually out front and everyone is single file. No one has ever even come close to staying up with him pin balling. I'm sure one day there will be one. He doesn't seem to mind staying back even while were pin balling, but he likes it a lot better out front. He can accelerate around just about any of them. Don't do it very often. Seems to upset the slow pokes, when we go flying around them. Unless of course it is my wife's horse, he doesn't care where he is or where the other horses are.
