Wait, so thoroughbreds can run in QH and TB races?
Yes, the races are usually 870 yards. Los Alamitos cards them quite often and has for years. One of my OTTB’s, Anniversary Year, ran in a couple of them in the early 2000’s.

TBs can do quite well against QHs in those 870s (basically four furlongs). Some TBs just love to run flat out for that distance and very often catch the QHs (who usually win the break and the first two furlongs) in the stretch. 8-)

Turf Paradise occasionally cards races at 1,000 yards for "thoroughbreds, quarter horses, Appaloosas and paints." I don't think I've ever seen an Appy in any of them, though. I remember the California fairs running Appy races until about 20 years ago, when they suddenly were dropped, i'd imagine due to a lack of Appys being used for racing.

Second part of a DRF article:

Soi Phet’s future unclear
The 11-year-old stakes winner Soi Phet resumed racetrack activity with trainer Leonard Powell at Santa Anita earlier this month.

A winner of 15 of 61 starts and $1,022,864, Soi Phet has not raced since a sixth-place finish in the E.B. Johnston Stakes for California-bred milers at Los Alamitos last September. Earlier in 2018, the popular gelding won consecutive starts against Cal-breds in the Crystal Water Stakes on turf at Santa Anita at 47-1, and the Bertrando Stakes on dirt at Los Alamitos.

Powell said Soi Phet has been galloping for a week. He said Soi Phet will have a limited campaign this year or will be retired.

Owned by a partnership that includes Powell’s family, Soi Phet had five starts as a 9-year-old in 2017 and six starts last year.
