Here we take a look at the history of horse racing, delving right back into Norse mythology and also talking about the royal roots of the great sport in the UK and the formation of the British Horse Racing Authority.

You might think much of this is a bit pointless or even a bit geeky but equally we’re sure there’s lots of great information whether you’re new to the wonderful sport of horse racing or a seasoned pro with countless Cheltenham Festivals under your belt!

As well as the history of racing we’ve also got information on the biggest and best horse races about which is perfect for planning your betting calendar or even scheduling a few great days out, whilst if you don’t know your classes from your grades or your groups from your gallops our racing classifications feature will be perfect.

We’ll be adding to this section all the time so be sure to check back if there is ever any racing information you’re unsure of as we aim to cover just about every aspect of this marvellous, inspiring, entrancing sport, whilst our A-Z glossary is just perfect if there is a phrase or bit of racing jargon about which you’re unsure.
