Guess I would have to ask with a question - which God. Not every religion believes in the same God - even though we all say there is only one. Someone will have something to say about that statement - but the bible states "what you hold to be true on earth I will hold you to in heaven". Thus we cannot judge anothers statement - but I am sure the Muslims believe him to be different from the Buddists who beleive him different that Eastern Orthadox etc.
Now on a different point - we are all of the HUMAN race and were created in HIS image. s a spirit a race?
God is a spirit, he created all races but he himself is not of any race at all dear heart.==============God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (John 4:24 KJV)
Any inquiry about God, I find in the book of life. It says, those who wrote in it were inspired directly by God himself and is good for correction, inspiration, wisdom, that he whom He created may be complete in His love and faithfulness. The very beginning of the book says, He created man in His image. So, this may mean that all men are one in Him regardless of our particular race. Meaning we are one in God without distinction and He is raceless.

Your question is apt but you've got the details wrong. It wasn't God who was racing -- he was the trainer of the champion three-year-old, Good Intentions, who was favourite for the Lexington Stakes..
It happened like this.
Moses was the jockey but the fix was in and God wanted to make a killing. The idea was to give the horse a good workout but to finish just out of the money, so he would get better odds when he backed him at Churchill Downs.
And why was that important? Because the bookie was none other than Lucifer. God knew that if they cleaned him out he wouldn't be able to pay his demons and the Tempters' Union would shut down Hell.
So God said to Moses, "Come fourth", but Moses was a bit thick and thought he said, "Come forth," so he did. He won the race, God lost his bet, and there's much joy in Mudtown ... er, Hell, tonight.
At John 4:25 it states, "God is a Spirit, and those worshiping him must worship with spirit and truth." He is not fleshly like you or I. Despite that at Acts 10:34,35 it says, "God is not partial, but in every nation the man that fears him and works righteousness is acceptable to him." Hope this helps!
