Resumen

El objetivo de este estudio fue determinar la prevalencia de estereotipias clásicas en caballos fina sangre de carrera del Hipódromo Chile, Chile, y la influencia del género y la edad. Se estudió la totalidad de los caballos fina sangre de carrera residentes en el Hipódromo Chile (n = 565). Por observación directa se determinó la presencia o ausencia de aerofagia, paseo circular en pesebrera o balanceo en cada caballo. Los resultados son expresados como porcentajes simples. Para el análisis estadístico se utilizó la prueba exacta de Fisher con un nivel de significancia de p < 0,05. La prevalencia total de estereotipias clásicas fue 6,19 % (2,68 % aerofagia, 2,33 % paseo circular en pesebrera y 1,79 % balanceo). No se encontró asociación entre las estereotipias y el género. Solo se encontró asociación entre la presencia de paseo circular en pesebrera y los caballos de 2 a 3 años de edad (p = 0,022). Los resultados sugieren que los caballos fina sangre de carrera del Hipódromo Chile presentan una prevalencia de estereotipias clásicas dentro del rango registrado previamente y que la edad es un factor de riesgo para el paseo circular en pesebrera.
