    Thoroughbred breeding and racing is a global industry, as confirmed in 2003 with the establishment of the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA), an organization based in Paris. Amongst other activities, this organization operates the World Thoroughbred Racehorse Rankings, a system designed to compare the racing performance of thoroughbreds in different parts of the world.
    This book attempts a rigorous examination of the linked activities of thoroughbred breeding and racing, taking into consideration the economic scope of this activity, its cultural significance, its environmental impacts (often hidden) and ethical issues, and aims to address the following questions:

    - What is the importance of tradition and innovation in the thoroughbred breeding and racing industry?
    - What significant changes have occurred within this industry over time?
    - What economic changes are impacting on the structure and practices of this industry?
    - What scientific and technological changes are affecting the industry?
    - How are thoroughbred breeding and racing related in the industry?
    - When are their aims and practices aligned and when do they diverge or conflict?
    - How is “nature” or the site of breeding and farming constructed and used in this industry?
    - What current ethical issues is the industry facing?
    - What happens to thoroughbreds when they finish racing?
    - What is the likely future of this industry given economic changes,
    technological changes and ethical concerns?
