Most of us associate thoroughbred racing - the Sport of Kings - with British sporting culture. This seems reasonable considering the United Kingdom is hosting more thoroughbred races on a regular basis and on a grander scale than most other nations. However, there are a plethora of international thoroughbred races which are just as thrilling as the events in the United Kingdom. And if you would like to learn more about these exciting international meetings and feature races, you have come to the right place.
Whether you would like to indulge yourself in the French racing scene with the marvellous Prix De L'Arc De Triomphe; or rather get down with the gritty action of the North American Breeders' Cup - there is an international race for every taste. Check out the races rooted deeply within the culture of their home countries and be amazed at how much thoroughbred racing has truly become a sport of the world.
