Horseracing is one of the most popular sports in the betting world, and, as such, is one of the most intimidating to get into. Our aim is to help you ease into the world of betting on horses and there is no better place to start than our Racecourses Section.
We have outlined many of the most popular courses in the UK – many of which are recognised world wide as top sporting venues. Find out the history of each course as well as some of the most notable races held throughout the year. You can also find some helpful information on the facilities and directions on how to reach the course by car or train.
Once you’re more familiar with the courses and races being run, move on to our helpful guides on Fixtures, Betting, and even Race Day Preparation to help you get right into the betting spirit. Or, read through the reviews of our recommended Bookmakers to familiarise yourself on the best places to put down a wager or two.
Find your way to the prime locations for the classic of British horse racing – the Flat Race. From the oldest established track in the country to simply the closest race course to your home, this directory will have you covered.
Sick of the flats? Then check out the places to go for an action-packed afternoon of jump races or National Hunt races. Discover the historic hurdles of Cheltenham or tremble before the famous fences at Aintree, we will tell you where.
Back in the good-old-days it was easy to find your way to a chariot race. You followed the crowd to the Colosseum or the dusty field where musicians and vendors were making such a racket you just couldn’t miss it. These days it isn’t quite so simple. Thankfully, we have comprised a list of venues that offer harness races to meet your chariot - or rather sulky - action needs.
No matter what takes your fancy - the flat races, the National Hunt races, or a flutter at the harness races - the top courses for all equine sport regardless of discipline are right at your fingertips. Let us direct you to your next big day out.
