INSIDE NATURE'S GIANTS: THE THOROUGHBRED RACEHORSE
The team explore how this animal has been biologically engineered for speed. They dissect an elite racehorse to reveal the extraordinary spring system that propels it to 45 mph, its super-sized organs and built-in turbo-booster.
Simon Watt visits the top breeding centre in Europe to find out how to produce a champion; and Mark Evans investigates the science behind their phenomenal performance and their vulnerability to injury.
This is the award-winning series that gets under the skin of the largest animals on the planet. Most wildlife documentaries show how animals behave, but by exploring their anatomy, it is revealed how these creatures really work.
You'll have a greater appreciation and be in even more awe of the complex biomechanics and physiology of the running Thoroughbred athlete after watching this feature. We all love the speed, athleticism and gracefulness of racehorses and this documentary gives a great insight into the modern Thoroughbred.
One very big warning though - this is a very graphic video definitely not suited to anyone who is squeamish in any way. They literally dissect a racehorse so do not watch if you don't want to see muscles, tendons, lungs, hearts and more.
