The Ban-ei race horse originated in Japan. Its main use is for racing. It is a heavy, draft type bred for Ban-ei Keiba race in which the horse pulls a heavy sledge. It originated from the Percheron and Breton. It stands 14.3 to 16.1 hands. Once a Ban-ei racehorse is retired, they use it for meat instead of letting it graze in pastures.
