High in energy for young horses
HYGAIN® RACETORQUE® is a high energy, protein rich micronized sweet feed. Formulated to provide a nutritionally balanced diet to maximise the development, condition and performance of young horses in training and competition.

HYGAIN® RACETORQUE®is a blend of the following quality ingredients:
Micronized Maize, Micronized Lupins, Micronized Beans, Sunflower Seeds, Rice Bran Oil, Natural Vitamin E, Calcium Carbonate, Di-Calcium Phosphate, Potassium Chloride, Magnesium Oxide, Salt, Molasses, Prebiotic (MOS), Probiotic (live yeast), Bio-Available Selenium, Bio-Available Chromium, Lysine, Methionine, Biotin and HYGAIN® Vitamin and Chelated Mineral Premix.
Bio-Available Silicon – Research has shown that Bio-Available Silicon a digestible form of monosilic acid has a role in bone physiology and metabolism by increasing osteoblastic (bone building) activity and decreasing osteoclastic (bone demineralization) activity, promoting optimal skeletal growth, integrity and durability.
Natural Vitamin E – This unique and highly stable form of Natural Vitamin E known as RRR-a-tocopherol is up to 5 times more bio available and potent than regular synthetic sources of Vitamin E. Research has shown that this form of Natural Vitamin E provides higher retention levels in plasma further aiding antioxidant, immune, cardiovascular, circulatory and neuromuscular functions.
Bio-Available Selenium – Selenium acts as an antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Research has shown that an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms.
Bio-Available Chromium – The addition of chromium to performance horse diets has been shown to reduce the build up of lactic acid at the end of strenuous exercise or the closing stages of a race and to increase the horse’s ability to store glucose.
Prebiotic – Prebiotics incorporated in HYGAIN® RACETORQUE® have a defined mode of action, promoting a healthy gut and supporting natural defences essential for optimum health and performance.
Probiotics – Probiotics are good bacteria that stimulate the activity of other good bacteria in the horse’s digestive tract. The addition of probiotics (live yeast) to equine diets improves fibre, phosphorus and calcium digestibility and increases gross energy, total lipid and amino acid absorption.
HYGAIN® RBO® – RBO® Equine Performance Oil® is a blend of rice bran oil, omega essential 3,6 & 9 fatty acids and natural anti-oxidants known to improve the health and structural integrity of cell membranes. RBO® oil plays an important role in maximising energy efficiency due to its energy dense nature and is digested efficiently in the small intestine reducing the ‘sugar high’ associated with high grain diets. RBO® promotes growth and development of the muscular system, top line and a healthy skin and coat.
Biotin – Biotin, a water soluble vitamin is required by the enzymes responsible for protein synthesis and as a result is an essential vitamin for the healthy growth of hair and hooves. Research has shown that biotin improves skin and coat condition, increases hoof integrity and is widely recommended by farriers and veterinarians.
HYGAIN® RACETORQUE® has been formulated to meet the nutritional requirements of young performance horses in training and competition.
HYGAIN® RACETORQUE® should be introduced to your horse’s diet gradually. Feeding amount may be influenced by age, breed, exercise intensity, desired body condition and climate.
HYGAIN® RACETORQUE® is a highly palatable, digestible energy source. Care should be taken to match feed intake to workload. Reduce feed intake on rest days, if horses gain weight and/or training regime is interrupted.
HYGAIN® RACETORQUE® is a complete feed and as such the addition of other grains and supplements only serves to dilute the nutritional balance of the feed.
Horses in full work will on average require 5-7kg of HYGAIN® RACETORQUE® per day together with 3-5 kg of quality roughage such as chaff and/or hay.
During periods of heavy sweat loss additional supplementation with an electrolyte such as HYGAIN® REGAIN® is recommended.
Weight per HYGAIN dipper (2ltr)
- Introduce HYGAIN® RACETORQUE® to your horse’s diet gradually over a 7-14 day period.
- Feed by weight and not by volume.
- Feed a minimum of 1% of your horse’s body weight daily as roughage.
- Horses have a small stomach, so feed little and often.
- Ensure horses have access to clean water.
- Do not add additional vitamins or minerals unless directed by a veterinarian or nutritionist.
