Horse Racing is an Equestrian Sport, typically involving 2 or more horses ridden or driven over a set course or distance for competition. With a long and distinguished history, horse racing is popular in civilizations across the world since ancient times, which have developed their own particular horse racing formats and traditions.
Both mounted and chariot horse racing events have been documented in the Greek Olympics by 648 BC. Flat track racing has existed in England since 1174, when 4-mile races took place at Smithfield in London, England.
The various forms of competition requiring specialized skills from both horse and rider, resulted in the development of specialized breeds and equipment for each sport.
These variations include races running over different distances, on different track surfaces, over obstacles and running in different gaits, with different breeds of horses that have developed to excel in each of the specific disciplines.

“The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans"
In 1940, they started the tradition to drape the winning horse in a garland of the state flower of Maryland - the Black-eye Susans. The problem was, the race is run nearly 2 months before these flowers bloom in late June or July.At first, workers painted yellow daisies to resemble Black-eyed Susans and later switched to Chrysanthemums. Although referred to "the race for the Black-eyed Susans", no Black-eyed Susan are ever used.

Games of Chance
The deal is practically random, so I do not have any control over that. When I do get to cut the deck, I always cut the cards as equal as possible.
I know wich cards I have. I know which cards they do not have and I control what the others don't have. I control what to do with my hand, such as folding or playing.
