we haven't started the thread anywhere through which our run() method will run(i.e "new Thread(horse.get(index)).start()"). Then how we will reach the code inside the run() method. Help out please!!

but as per i have learned yet. we first create a Thread Object and pass the class object as argument to it and then start the thread.

ok wait....since our Horse class extends the Thread class...so there's no problem with the start method. but for what purpose start() method is implemented for.

When you call the start(); method on an object that extends Thread or implements the Runnable interface you tell the JVM to create a new thread and start running from the objects run() method. But if you simply call the run(); method then your existing main thread simply executes the code in the run method, no new thread is created.
