Most horses that I have seen in horse racing are of a darker color or have a deep shade of red-brown (like Secretariat). Is there any specific reason for this? Have there ever been any light colored champions?
As the others have said, the color of a horse plays no part in determining. One of the greatest horses of all time, Man o' War was a chestnut colt and they are far lighter than bay colts like Zenyatta.
