Re: Why does the horse on the outside win so much

It depends on if the inside horse was the pacesetter or not. Most pacemakers tire eventually. It's an emotional thing. It's because horses are hard animals. They emotionally need to be in the herd. In the wild, one will be in front and then another takes over, letting the other fall back into the g...

Why does the horse on the outside win so much
