Guide to Race-Going
Publisher: J.A. Allen
Horseracing is the second-biggest spectator sport in Britain but, while it is widely viewed as 'a good day out', many people who enjoy the experience also admit to being rather baffled by much of what goes on. A Guide to Race-Going offers a wealth of guidance for newcomers to racing, but also contains much that will be of interest to regular race-goers. Topics covered include: how racing developed; the types of races; the people involved; picking and enjoying a suitable day out; understanding racecards; the basics of betting; how to get the best from watching a race.
