There is a shift of attention from rural areas to the cities in folk culture studies. This shift is justified by the wide range of folk culture resources harboured by the cities. Legends are noteworthy among these cultural products originating in cities. Since translate the aspirations of the people and they become a part of everyday life, it is only natural that they are produced in the cities as well as rural areas. Mirhat is an ever winning legendary race horse which generated various beliefs after its unexpected death in 1998. There are people who do not believe that Mirhat actually died. Some others believe that this majestic Arabian breed, which was nicknamed as "The King of Veliefendi" died because of its resentment out of participating a race below its deserved category.
