Horse racing has been revived in Cyprus since the late 19th century. According to archaeological finds found in the Cyprus Museum, the tradition of the sport in Cyprus is lost in the depths of Hellenistic times. There are horse racing descriptions in Omiros and other ancient writers. In the past horse racing was a "king's sport" that King's took part in. When the kings of ancient Salamis of Cyprus died their horses were buried with them.
