Group 3 Horse Races

What does Group 3 mean in horse racing?

The term Group 3 in horse racing is used for the third-highest tier of horse races in the world.

While they are not considered as important as the Group 1 or Group 2 races, Group 3 races are also rated as top-class events.

The best horse racing thoroughbreds need to achieve an official rating of 105 plus to compete in the quality group three races.

International contenders compete in the competitive UK group three races to try and get their black-type status.
