It’s a little curious to me that in the last 200 years the average thoroughbred heart size has increased 42% but the average speed of the horses has varied within a range of less than 15% in the last hundred years ( I could not find 200 years worth of time and speed statistics).
Horses who have stood out dramatically from their fellows – who run not only faster, but harder, who never give up until the finish line. Interesting article! Jim Fixx died of heart failure, just like males in his bloodline before him, in spite of being a big time runner (and author about running), so genetics must play an important part of endurance and lots of aspects of athleticism.
Thoroughbreds have a much shorter life span than most horses, and physiologically they’re very different. Tony, your ego is, literally, costing us too much.
The way a thoroughbred is engineered IS very different. Yet in an exemplary display of massive ego-enhancement, he is totally unrepentant about taking the taxpayer for a ride. I would think that having a larger-than-normal heart would cause health problems for the horse.
Obviously, given Secretariat, it’s not exactly a good measure. In the bell curve distribution of heart size in the thoroughbred population, those individuals with an elite athletes cardiovascular system are at the outer edges of the curve, aand are not represented by the average thoroughbred. He is the man who in 2012, when he was Leader of the Opposition, charged taxpayers $8800 to take one of his daughters to the Tamworth Country Music Festival and more than $10,000 so his family could attend Derby Day and the AFL grand final. That said, the judicious use of either can be benificial in some instances. Of course the folk-lore was contradictory, depending on who was doing the telling.

Is heart size posted anywhere before a race?…would be interesting to know how much this article could impact the horse racing scene.

But GH does increase heart size, so part of the 42% increase might come from GH use rather than selection forces. Rather, he's in our faces more than ever, with views on everything and an insatiable media ready to broadcast his every thought bubble. I’ve heard Armstrong has a resting heart rate in the 30s. Phar Lap’s remains are today found in three significant cultural institutions.
During my teenage years though i was certainly the faster, better, stronger one of my friends and family and was able to achieve moderate success in the sporting field. researchers can determine with some degree of certainty whether a living horse has a small, normal, or large heart. Two hundred years later when the Triple Crown winner Secretariat was autopsied, his heart was estimated at an astonishing twenty-two pounds. They evidently think they can reprise their defeat of the 1999 republican referendum but chances are their double-act will be as pathetic as the Chopper Read and Roger Rogerson stand-up shows – and only marginally less offensive.

Those daughters and their descendants were shipped all over the world, spreading the large hearted X-chromosome throughout the Thoroughbred world. Much speculation ensued, and when an autopsy revealed that the horse’s stomach and intestines were inflamed, many believed the horse had been deliberately poisoned.
That’s flat out disgusting in evolutionary terms. Here’s how you can help – everyone needs to contact their senators and indicate they don’t want our horses dying to feed other countries.
In the three races which he did not win, he ran 2nd on two occasions, beaten by a short head and a neck, and in the 1931 Melbourne Cup he finished 8th when carrying 10 stone 10 pounds (68 kilograms).

Sounds to me like this spells the end to Stud Farms upon retirement…another dream busted!!!!
I’d like to add that the November 2004 issue (# 325) of Equus magazine contains an article on this, and a lot more detail. It's hard to believe that he's still there, brazen and bald-faced, badgering us with his weird ideas, occupying too much political space. If they were born with them, I would assume they would be of normal blood capacity or greater which would mean it would be pumping larger quantities of blood throughout the body which in turn means more oxygen getting into the animals system. It was his devious avoidance strategy as prime minister that gave the country the plebiscite mess that has made us a political joke. Sounds to me like this spells the end to Stud Farms upon retirement…another dream busted!!!!”. The damn interesting thing is that the horses in the pictures have one leg of a different color.

Anyway, I find it peculiar that there should not be a way to tell a horse’s heart size pre-mortem. Pity about the passing out but, hey, it was eight years ago and the government had the numbers anyway.

Steroids and GH speed up recovery rates and can heal microinjuries that would otherwise result in serious problems. And funnily enough, if you put your ego where it belongs, beside those other Aussie icons in a museum, chances are people might eventually start to see you as the loveable larrikin you think you are.
A life-sized bronze memorial was erected in 2009 near his birthplace in Timaru. This provides a simple, reasonable explanation. I wonder if this works the same for humans….
Perhaps it only applies to him since none of the other former prime ministers make similar claims.
:-) Thanks!!! That doesn’t change the fact that the rate of change in thoroughbreds is astonishingly fast. Warren Brown visits Melbourne Museum where the legendary Phar Lap – or at least his preserved hide – stands in a glass case.

With all the new information on the advantages of the large heart, and the new pedigree and inheritance information, the discussions of racehorses with great heart is likely to take on a whole new meaning.
