Appaloosa Racing Roots

The Nez Perce of the Northwest bred spotted horses, and these animals became an integral part of their lives. The Appaloosa was well known for its intelligence, stamina and unique color patterns.

Racing was as much a sport to the Nez Perce as it is to us today. It also gave the American Indian tribe a measuring stick by which to select the best horses for the hunt. Race distances were set from a few hundred yards to 12 miles.

As the number of races increased, so did the colorful breed's popularity. Appaloosa racing is now conducted at more than 40 tracks throughout the United States and Canada, year-round. Appaloosas have earned their place in the racing industry with style, grace and most importantly, speed.

Appaloosas today have attained the status of the middle-distance runner, racing at distances from 220 yards to 8 furlongs.
 

Racing with the Appaloosa Horse Club  

The ApHC Racing Department oversees Appaloosa racing activities, collecting results and maintaining permanent records of all recognized Appaloosa races.

The ApHC recognizes horses that have proven their superiority in racing by awarding medallions, registers of merit, year-end champion and regional high-point champion awards.

The ApHC also offers $1,000 to the breeder of the Strike It Rich Futurity winner, promoting the breeding of Appaloosas and rewarding those who have bred exceptional horses from Appaloosa stallions.
