Last year, Twin Spires was, in fact, the scene of a very special horse race, which just so happened to be televised around the world. On that glorious November Sunday, the 148th running of the Grand National steeplechase coincided with the 41st running of the British Classic, the Derby. While the world was focused on watching the drama unfold on the racecourse, punters from all over the UK had their eyes glued to their screens, following the action between the rails. The combination of these two legendary events made it a day that British horse-racing fans will never forget. It was an incredible day for horse racing in the UK. However, the big question is, “When does the next big race take place on Twin Spires?”
The answer is, quite easily, the 2018 Cheltenham Festival. The five-star attraction that is the Cheltenham Festival offers punters the perfect combination of a classic English festival and a sporting event. The festival is renowned for its steeplechase, its jumps championship (the Festival Cup), and its National Hunt racing. In fact, the whole week is filled with exciting horse racing. This year’s Festival is scheduled to take place from March 18 to March 24. That puts the 2018 Cheltenham Festival at the pinnacle of the UK horse-racing calendar.
Another big race that takes place every year is the Punchestown Festival. This year’s edition of the festival, which takes place in Ireland, will be on August 29 and 30. It is probably the second-largest horse-racing festival in Europe, attracting fans from across the globe. The main races at the festival are the Irish Derby and the Irish St. Leger, which are contested over the two days of the festival. The whole week is filled with excitement as the horses prepare for these two races. This year’s festival is also expected to be a stellar event. Ireland is one of the most successful horse-breeding countries in the world. Its thriving horse-racing scene is a reflection of that success. The Irish Derby is considered by many to be the equivalent of the Derby in England. The Irish are very proud of their steeds and the sport. The combination of all these factors makes the Punchestown Festival one of the most anticipated events every year. This year’s edition of the festival will be special because it marks the 125th anniversary of one of Ireland’s most famous horse-racing trainers, Frank McGrath. The whole country will be celebrating the occasion with lots of special races and events.
All About The Countryside
The UK has, unquestionably, one of the most beautiful, stunning countryside. It is full of historic villages, castles, cobbled lanes, and pretty, little rural pubs. That is the reason why horse racing, and other hunting sports, have been so popular in the country. People love being out in nature, getting away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday world. It is no surprise that the UK is considered to be the home of horse racing. There is so much to do in the country. It is easy to spend a day walking the scenic country lanes or going on a ride with the family. Alternatively, visitors can head to the nearest big city to buy themselves a pint in one of the many watering holes scattered around the towns and countryside. It is an idyllic and romantic concept, and one that appeals to many people. Whether you are travelling abroad or staying in Ireland for a few days, you will certainly want to fit in as many horse-racing related activities as you can. In addition, you should visit some of England’s most iconic locations, either on foot or by bus or train. These places are museums in themselves. The famous London Bridge, for example, is a Unesco World Heritage Site. It is filled with history and is an absolute must for any tourist visiting the city.
What About The Sports Books?
Aside from the wonderful festivals and big races, it is also possible to follow the action through the sports books. These are the directories that tell you which betting companies are authorised to trade in the different sports. The advantage of following the action through a sports book is that, in addition to placing bets on the horses, you can also access all the form information, analysis, and odds for every event. It is a great place to discover new betting companies and compare their offerings. You can also find a list of the latest news stories, blogs, and other material about the sport you follow.
