{jcomments off}Horseracing has been at the heart of British popular and sporting culture for centuries and, for many, ‘having a flutter’ is key to the enjoyment of the raceday.

 

WHY BET?

Since horseracing’s beginnings, when horse owners challenged each other as to whose horse was better, people have speculated (had a punt) on the outcome of the race. A number of variables influence the result of a race. Some horses are simply better than others, but other factors play a part in the final result – the state of the ground (going), the skill of the jockey, the distance of the race. For most visitors, part of the magic of the day is the excitement of placing a bet – beating the bookmaker and walking away with a win, however modest.

To help you get the most from your day at the races Racing For Change has created a new guide: GO BET! THE EASY  BETTING GUIDE
