Not all racehorses break down young. There is a race run at Newbury called the Veteran's Chase and the youngest horse that entered this year was 10 years old, the oldest was 14 years old. These are still racing, there were Grand National entries running in it. Kauto Star is 12 years old, won the King George VI cup on Boxing day for the 5th time. Denman retired at 12 as well. There has to be something right going on for them to make to this age and still be racing. Not every horse makes it to that age on the race track, I'm not blind but they are well looked after.
Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
