Horse Racing

Horse racing is very much an international sport, and it has been around for thousands of years. In recent years the sport has come to consist of flat racing, steeplechase and harness racing. On the UK betting market the main focus tend to be on flat racing and steeplechase.

On the British Isles there are plenty of markets for anyone looking to place a bet, particularly for flat racing and steeplechase, with flat racing being the most popular one. There are also plenty of odds on the Australian and North American market. In addition to betting on placement-and winner it is popular to place bets on big events like Triple Crown during the Cheltenham Festival.

When talking about horse racing, there are a few horses that really deserve to be mentioned. Seabiscuit is a name that many will recognise, and a film with the same name was made in memory of this fine race horse. When it comes to harness racing, then horses like Ready Cash and Varenne are names that comes to mind. The biggest international race is Prix d’Amérique.
