Miss Bolwell’s research investigated the effect of early exercise in young Thoroughbred horses on subsequent racing performance. Miss Bolwell used epidemiological studies to collect information from studmasters and trainers over a two year period. Miss Bolwell found that the exercise accumulated at a young age and during race training was associated with reaching important training and racing milestones. Miss Bolwell’s findings indicate that current exercise regimens in young horses could be modified in order to reduce losses within the racing industry and allow more horses to have successful training and racing careers.
