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 American Pharoah winner of Kentucky Derby 2015, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes making him the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years since Affirmed in 1978 and Seattle Slew in 1977. This is what it looks like from the jockey's point of view to "work out" a race horse at high speed. You might notice American Pharaoh is spelled wrong and that's because the idiot owner's son registered the horse with the spelling mistake.
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, like American Pharoah, 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 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah can gallop. It matters how fast the 2015 Kentucky Derby Winning horse can run and how far he can maintain this fast galloping pace.
GoPro Hero 3 Helmet Cam. Jockey cam shows what super fast galloping at 44 mph (workout ) looks like from rider POV. Please Subscribe, Like and Share. American Pharoah Kentucky Derby and Triple Crown Winner 2015
A champion Triple Crown winning race horse like, American Pharoah 2015, 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 like American Pharoah, 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.
