The Case of El Romiachi - 26 runs in 12 months

The case of El Romiachi. The 7 yo gelding has had the following race record of runs in his career.

18/19 1 run debut in July that year
19/20 17 times run
20/21 21 times run
21/22 14 times run
22/23 26 times run
23/24 1 month in and he's run twice already.

It was recently highlighted at the Equus Awards that he had run 26 times in the 22/23 which was the most any horse had run in that year. That's the equivalent of racing a horse twice a month for 12 months straight.

2023 runs, month and total for that month.

It's true that some horse can take a lot of races

The question is, is it something we as an industry should be highlighting considering the view taken on racing welfare, which is more prevalent than ever before and our attempts to bring in a newer audience?
