The team at JustHorseRacing.com.au would like to wish every horse in the Southern Hemisphere a big ‘Happy Birthday’.
Each year the 1st of August is celebrated as the Horse’s Birthday. The date was chosen as the official birth date of all horses in the southern hemisphere due to it falling on the beginning of the foaling season. This allows all foals born in that season to be considered the same age for racing purposes.
Wish Australian horses a happy birthday by liking this post on Facebook or Tweeting it to your friends. Without horses we wouldn’t have racing, they deserve a day in which the viewers of the sport and those in the industry celebrate their involvement.
