Risk factors for equine fractures in Thoroughbred flat racing in North America

Article English OPEN
Georgopoulos, Stamatis Panagiotis; Parkin, Tim D.H.;

The aim of this paper is to identify risk factors associated with equine fractures in flat horse racing of Thoroughbreds in North America. Equine fractures were defined as any fracture sustained by a horse during a race. This was a cohort study that made use of all star... View more
