“They used to have an engine, and now all the horses are electric,” says Michael McAlpine, who runs a local horse farm. “In the past you had to leave the stall or pull up on a horse that ran at 12 to 15 mph to get off.”
There were about 100 horses in the village at the time the study was done, but McAlpine estimates that the number of speed mules has gone up to 20.
The findings could suggest that the adoption of electric racing has brought about a boom in horse speed and training, and this could be good news for the racing industry. But the speed mules appear to be less popular, with only 12 horses going to the top of the World Cup circuit last year.

A Democratic assemblyman and a Democratic state assemblyman will join Mayor Bill de Blasio and President Barack Obama at a “sneak meeting” on Saturday, according to a spokesman for the pair.
New York governor Andrew Cuomo’s announcement yesterday that he will hold a bilateral meeting with New York City Council member John DeStefano at 9:40 a.m. on Saturday at the U.N. headquarters in New York is “a move that the governor is taking in response to his goal of reaching out to his colleagues in both parties on behalf of the American people,” said de Blasio spokesman Russell Arbeiter.
A source told the New York Daily News that Senate Democrats Jim Gordon and Mark Grisanti met with de Blasio, who made no mention of his meetings as governor. Both are New York assemblymen.
A spokesman for de Blasio told NBC News that de Blasio made the announcement at 6:30 p.m. last night after the two met in their offices with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
“The governor wanted to get to know them before coming to the United Nations,” the spokesman said. “There’s a big bipartisan effort here to raise taxes and cut other programs and not have to raise taxes.
“For that reason, the mayor is excited to meet with him this weekend at the U.N.”
Cuomo had met with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on Friday night. (Christie met with the Democratic governor on Thursday night.)
