Dear Pawan
 
 
In total there are 5 horses. out of these Mr A selects two horses. This can be done in \binom{5}{2}(5C2)=10 ways.
Out of the five horses only one horse wins. Let us say Mr A has selected the horse. He has to select one more horse so that his set of two has the winning horse. out of remaining 4 one can be selected in \binom{4}{1}ways.Thus 
n(E)=\binom{4}{1}=4
n(S)=\binom{5}{2}=10
\Rightarrow P(E)=\frac{n(E)}{n(S)}=\frac{4}{10}=\frac{2}{5}
