I don't race with my horse... He's already a racehorse event though he never ran in a race, and I don't want to arouse some race instinct and get totally forgotten while I'm on his back! It's way too dangerous... Even on the beach I never really get in the mood "let's race!", we gallop, I check if he's listening to me and then I let him speed up for a while, constantly checking his ears, how he looks, and I know I can stop him. But I would absolutely never head back home at full speed, not even in a trot... We always walk back and I'm often walking just ahead of him to have him calm...
I would say, too, get some help, it could be many many things that make him act crazy...
