More About Horse Racing - Ancient Greece to Aintree
As anyone with
even a vague knowledge of history will know, riding horses for sport is nothing new and was a key feature of life in ancient
Greece and Rome. However, the organised sport as we know it today has its roots in 17th century America, where the world's
oldest thoroughbred race was established on Long Island. Soon growing in popularity in almost all corners of the globe, it
was Britain, along with near neighbour Ireland, that became its most passionate proponents, establishing the Jockey Club in
1750 to solidify the Rules of Racing.
In the main, there are two types of horse racing on our shores - National Hunt
and Flat, with varying distances. Fans of the sport are never too far away from a course, with famous venues such as Ascot,
Newmarket and Doncaster welcoming millions of punters every year. Meanwhile, events such as The Grand National in Aintree
and the Cheltenham Gold Cup have become important dates on the social calendar.
With races attended by everyone from
modest fans to royals, it's little surprise that horse racing tickets are in perennial demand in the UK and beyond. Browse
