I'm not going to tell ya...……. Oh Alright then, horsepower is defined as work done over time. The exact definition of one horsepower is 33,000 lb.ft./minute. Put another way, if you were to lift 33,000 pounds one foot over a period of one minute, you would have been working at the rate of one horsepower.

Well the obvious answer is 1.

However I would suggest a pedigree race horse has more power than the nags in the field near where I live.

I have never understood horsepower when it comes to cars.

If a car could do 150 mph. The speed of the fasted race horses is only around 40 MPH.

If you tied 4 together and made them run they are only going to run at the slowest horses speed.

They are not going to turn into super horses and achieve an actual speed of 160 mph because of their individual capability.
