Horses are magnificent runners, but have you ever wondered what would happen if one raced against other animals?

Welcome to the Betway Animal Kingdom Cup, a fantasy flat race that pits the humble thoroughbred race horse against nine of the world’s fastest land mammals over a two-mile, four-furlong track.

Using reliable speed and endurance data from sources such as National Geographic, WWF and Guinness World Records, Betway’s brilliant animated video (top) simulates how a race between these renowned speed demons – including stellar names like the cheetah, lion and brown bear – would likely play out… if it ever got the green light to run at Royal Ascot.
