Horse Race Permutations

Probability Level 2

At the start of a horse race, there are 12 distinct horses in the field. 3 horses can place at the end of the race, and it matters what order the horses placed in. For example, if horses A,\text{A}, B,\text{B}, and C\text{C} placed, then it would matter which horse came in 1st,2nd,1^\text{st}, 2^\text{nd}, and 3rd.3^\text{rd}. The order ABC\text{ABC} would be different than ACB.\text{ACB}.

How many possible fields of placed horses are there?
