Horse Racing Meetings


There are a few days on the horse racing calendar that stand out because the meeting in question is loaded with top class horse races - one group 1 race after another, the world's best racehorses, jockeys, and trainers all competing for huge purses and the glory of capturing a Grade 1 horse race. Horses that win these races generally increase their breeding value exponentially and millions of dollars thus hangs in the balance with each lunge to the post.

These horse racing meetings are spread across the globe and thanks to online racebooks you can now bet on all of them. From Nad Al Sheba to Ascot, or Monmouth Park (host of the 2007 Breeders' Cup meeting) to Melbourne there are now worldwide horse racing betting opportunities for those of us who love to bet on the ponies regardless of where they race.

The majority of horse races that are featured at these meetings, be it the Dubai World Cup day or the five day Royal Ascot festival, tend to consist of extremely competitive fields that are usually large in size and weighted to give many horses a winning chance (the Melbourne Cup comes to mind as a literal cavalry charge handicap). This means that there are frequently large payouts for punters and winning an exotics bet such as the Pick Six or the Placepot on one of these championship days can mean that a small fortune is coming your way.

We have compiled a list of the greatest horse racing meetings in the world and you can rest assured that all the online bookmakers that are recommended on our website are reputable and safe. Many of them offer promotions and bonuses that tie in to these meetings so be sure to check back here for those offers.
