Five-words:

My first is a kind of cattle from Asia (more than one).
My second is what a horse did to its victory if it just won a race on its own merit.
My third is found together with a groom.
My fourth is the kind of praise a jockey gets if they just won a race by cheating.
My fifth is a horse, or any animal that can be ridden.

(Inspired by Prem's Four-words (----||||).)

Cool puzzle!

The answers to the clues are:

1) Zebus (an Asian cow thing)
2) The horse earnt its victory
3) Bride, of course
4) He cheated, so his praise is undue
5) An animal that can be ridden is generally called a steed

Arranged:

ZEBUS
EARNT
BRIDE
UNDUE
STEED
