Horse Racing Festivals
Throughout the year, races course up and down the country host their own Festivals of Racing. These up to a weeklong festivals features big race after big race, the best horses, jockeys and trainers and massive crowds.
As well as been fantastic events for those in attendance, with tracks offering lots of course activities and attractions, they are always popular for those wanting to bet on the horses and that is where GGTV comes into it’s own as we bring you all you need to know on where to bet and watch the very best Horse Racing Festivals throughout the year.
There is nothing quite like cheering on the horse you have backed as it gallops down the home straight towards the line. Whilst you can of course bet each way and give yourself the chance to win by just coming up short, seeing your horse stay out in front or come from behind the take the win on the line is right up there with the most jubilant sporting moments.
The beauty of horse races is that whilst in most sports those big moments happen just a few times a year, in racing those movements happen multiple times a week thanks to not just the sheer volume of racing around the world but also thanks to the handicap system keeping racing so close.
Next Best Thing
To enjoy those moments the most, you really need to be at the racecourse itself where the atmosphere allows you to enjoy that winning feeling the most but that isn’t always an option. The next best thing is to watch the action live and with just about every race filmed, it has never been simpler watching horse racing live via GGTV and our live streaming partners.
Horse Racing is almost unique amongst sports as the majority of those watching don’t have a team to follow, a favourite player or even a ‘home ground’ to watch the action in but there are certainly a number of similarities with popular sports such as football and rugby league.
Instead of having a team to follow many horse racing fans follow horses from certain trainers or stables, instead of a favourite team many horse racing fans have favourite horses. Instead of favourites players many horse racing fans have favourite jockeys and many horse racing fans have favourite race tracks.
Horse racing also offers a great sporting spectacle in each and every race as despite there always been a favourite you can never be sure of who will win. The roar of the crowd as the horse enter the home straight is always a heart racing experience and there is always something exciting about the atmosphere at a horse racing meeting, especially on big race days and during festivals.

Stream Horse Racing Live
Here in the United Kingdom and Ireland, we are in the fortunate position to have many of the world great racing horses, horse trainers, jockeys, and racecourses right on our doorstep, with the vast majority of us only a relatively short drive from our nearest racecourse but that in many ways makes it harder to see all of the great action available to us as if we go to the track live, we miss out on racing elsewhere.
That does not even take into account the incredible action available to watch from courses that we cannot get to easily or racing from across Europe, Asia, Australia, and the rest of the world.
The sport is one that draws eyes from across the globe and with lots of the action taking place during working hours, it is also a sport that is made for tv but unfortunately, it can be a hugely frustrating experience for fans to watch along live as whilst some races are selected for free-to-air coverage, the majority of racing is either on dedicated tv channels that need an expensive and ongoing subscription to pay tv channels that bring you the footage live but if you love to watch racing from many different racecourse and different types of racing, then you will also likely need a number of those ongoing and expensive subscriptions.
Thankfully, there is now an incredibly easy and safe way to watch the action that you want to watch from the world of Horse Racing and that is by using one of the incredible Horse Racing live stream services that are featured on this very page.
All of the online streaming services of the online bookmakers that we feature allow you to live stream horse Racing not just from across England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland but from across the globe.
To be able to watch racing live you do need to have a funded account, be aged 18 or over and you also need to have met the minimum stake requirement but the chances are that if you are looking to watch Horse Racing live online, you are also wanting to bet on the action that you watch, so why not simply choose one of the top rated bookies that we feature that allow you to watch along live with the races that you have bet on?
If you have already placed a bet on a horse running today and are now trying to find somewhere to watch that race with a bookie that does not allow you to watch along, make sure your next bet is with a great bookie that does allow you stream races live online.
The sport of Horse Racing is one of the most historic sports in the world and what make sit even more special is that in many ways, it has remained incredibly similar throughout its history and its basic premise of racing over a set distance with the fastest horse winning been constant since at least classical antiquity.
When you watch racing live from ultra-modern racecourses it may not feel like you are watching history in front of your own eyes but with links back to the Roman Empire and even to Ancient Greece and in many ways, the sport is an incredible link to the past and perhaps one of the few things that people from the era of BCE would recognise if they were to somehow time travel to today.
There are not many sports out there that need to rely upon archaeological evidence to understand its past history but is the case for the ‘Sport of Kings’ as it has been discovered that the sport occurred in Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Babylon, Syria and Egypt and of course chariot racing can be dated back further.
Horse Racing was even an event in the original Olympic Games in 648 BCE and it was also an important aspect of the Panhellenic Games, a major competition of its era.
The sport continued to be run, using with Chariots, for centuries and was a huge part of the Roman Empire and those traditions continued in Italy for a long time as from the mid-fifteenth century through to 1882, horses from Africa were let loose on the Via del Corso, a long straight street, with people cheering them on.
From there, it was thoroughbred racing that became the standard for the sport and still remains to this very day, but it was in the 1600-1700’s when it became a huge part of British society and popular with the rich, famous and powerful and it is form that era when it became known s the ‘Sport of the Kings’.
Many of the races and race courses that we all love to watch and visit to this very day were established during this golden heyday and helped to establish Britain as one of the key centres for Horse Racing but over the past few decades, the sport has continued to become more and more global with many top courses, jockeys and horses been based around the world and thankfully with so much quality action out there, it has never been easier to watch racing online.
