The thoroughbred (TB) horse breed has exceptional physiological traits and is well-known in horse racing. It has been bred for endurance, strength, and speed for 300 years. Recently, there have been many studies on the molecular characteristics or mechanisms associated with elite athletic performance of the TB breed, and sequence variants in exercise-related genes have also been reported. Here, using 12 microsatellite markers, we assessed genetic diversity and relationships among two groups of… CONTINUE READING
