Horse working with jockey helmet camera. How Fast is a thoroughbred race horse galloping? Clocked with HR/GPS onboard at 44mph for a few seconds. GoPro Hero 3 action camera/video camera. This is not California Chrome winner of Kentucky Derby 2014 and Preakness Stakes, but this is what it looks like from the jockey's point of view to "work out" a race horse at high speed.
Make sure you click the link in the video to the heart rate monitor chart on this horse. You may find it very interesting. Many thoroughbreds can reach these burst of fast galloping speeds, but it does nothing more than give you an indication of the horse's max galloping speed. A horse will almost never win a race over a half mile if he reaches his absolute top speed in the race. A thoroughbred race horse galloping at a 44 mph pace will quickly tire and falter, allowing his rivals to pass him in the stretch. It really doesn't matter how fast your horse can gallop. It matters how fast your horse can run and how far he can maintain this fast galloping pace.

A champion race horse needs to have a large efficient heart and a high ration of fast twitch muscle fibers. Both these traits can be measured. The muscle tissue can be biopsied and the heart measured with an ultrasound machine. The heart can also be measured with a heart rate monitor which tells you how hard a horse is working at a specific speed or workload. The GoPro Hero 3 Jockey Cam and HR monitors make a great pair. If a horse can maintain a high cruising speed and continue work out near the aerobic threshold then he would be an exceptional animal. All this said, the horse will still need proper conditioning and be mentally sound to be considered a great thoroughbred race horse like California Chrome, 2014 winner, and other Kentucky Derby Winners.
If you have never had the opportunity and wondered what it would be like to open up on a thoroughbred race horse then maybe this helmet camera video will give you a little taste of the thrill. Enjoy riding along with a GoPro Hero 3 mounted to the jockey's helmet. How Fast Can A Horse Run? Gallop? Check out the new GoPro Hero 4 in 2014!
