Shahzada (horse race)

The Shahzada is a long-running horse race held in Australia every year. It is an endurance race, where competitors must complete a four hundred kilometer cross-country route.[1] The race is described as the longest endurance race in the world.

The race is named after a purebred Arabian stallion imported from England in 1925.[1]
