How much does a racehorse cost?


Answer by  martin (522)

The price of a racehorse depends on several factors, including its potential based on parents' reputation, its age, and its history of winning races. A young horse that has not raced, with undistinguished parents, could cost as little as $2000. An horse that has won many races can cost millions.

A thouroughbreed for the Triple Crown can cost millions of dollars, but horses for the local racecourses can be bought for much less. Horses bought at claiming races (ie races where all the horses are for sale) can cost as little as 3,000 dollars.

It varies. There are horses that have won the Kentucky Derby who were bought for $50,000 dollars, and other horses who were bought for millions and never won a single race. Many times, to make it affordable, several people pool their money together and let their trainer pick the horse. With that, you can look at spending about 10,000 dollars.
