Racing-Shot

Horse Racing events are significant in Her Majesty the Queens land. Since we are almost finishing off the first half of 2015, there are several horseracing events that have already come and passed. However, this doesn’t mean that there are no more events to look forward to. Below we look at three major events that will have bettors rummaging through race results from previous events to get an edge on the online competition.

Ebor Festival

Also known as the York Ebor Festival, this is a four-day horse racing event that commences every August at the York Racecourse in York. Ebor Festival is a flat handicap event that attracts runners that are three years and older.

Run at York and covering a length of two thousand, eight hundred and sixteen metres (1 mile and 6 furlongs), the event is breath-taking. The Ebor Festival is derived from Eboracum, which is York in Roman.

History serves us that Ebor Festival began in 1843 and then it was known as the Great Ebor Handicap. John Orton was the founder of the race and at that particular time he served as the Course at York Clerk. History also reminds us that the original course covered well over two miles. Later, however, the distance was shortened by two furlongs.

A famous horse racing event with bettors who start studying the previous race results months before the event goes underway. The York Ebor race takes place on the last day of the York’s Four-day meeting. It is currently the most valuable Flat Handicap event in all of Europe.

A three-day Cambridgeshire meeting is held annually from the 25th to the 27th of September. The horseracing event since its inception has always been the greatest Racing highlight in Autumn. The event is ever alive with a world-class “Course of Champions” Racing front.

Newmarket Racecourses are a part and parcel of the Jockey Club. The Club has been running in the British Horseracing society for more than two-hundred and sixty years. Active management and large spectator turnout since its inception have seen the Cambridgeshire Meeting remain a success.
