Trainer — The trainer of the horse can often be a useful guide, with some trainers having better records with younger horses, horses at different tracks and horses from a certain family. Horses from powerful trainers such as Willie Mullins or John Gosden are likely to be well supported.
Jockey — A star jockey like Frankie Dettori will always attract attention on the racecard and sometimes it pays to follow a top jockey who has travelled a long way to a meeting just for one ride. New jockeys receive a 7lb claim, but as they register more winners it drops to 5lb and then 3lb before they lose that benefit altogether. This can indicate whether a horse is in-form and can be used as a guide to help pick the winner.
Draw Flat only — Knowing what position in the stalls the horse is in is a useful tool. The layout of some tracks favours different positions in the stalls — a key example would be the Kentucky Derby, where the higher the draw number the further you are from the rail. Breeding — For many, the breeding is an integral part of the racecard as you can, in theory, work out how good a horse might be by looking at the form of its parents and siblings.
C — C stands for Course and will appear next to the name of horses who have achieved a win at the track. Some tracks are quite unusual and knowing your horse is able to handle the track is a positive sign. D — D stands for Distance and will appear if a horse has won over the distance of the race under consideration.
This is important, because if a horse has won over the trip before it could do so again and may have an advantage over opponents who lack that proven ability. BF — stands for Beaten Favourite. If they were favourite for their last race, the expectation might have been for them to win and it could be a sign that they have the ability to do better this time. If the horse has been out for a while it could be lacking race fitness. It is important to read this before betting.
Betting forecast — The betting forecast is not the odds of the horse but a prediction of what they will be. This tool is a guide to how the betting market is expected to shape up. There are many betting types to choose from when placing a wager. From singles to multiples, we have a list of some of the most popular types of bet. A single bet on two outcomes in different events.
Both selections must win to guarantee a return. A single bet on three outcomes in different events. All three selections must win to guarantee a return. An accumulator comprises of four or more selections in one bet. All of the selections must win to guarantee a return. A bet comprising three selections and four bets — three doubles and a treble. A minimum of two selections must win to guarantee a return.
A bet involving three selections and seven bets — three singles, three doubles and one treble. It is the equivalent of a Trixie but with the addition of three singles. A bet consisting of four selections and 11 bets — six doubles, four trebles and a fourfold.
A minimum of two selections must win to guarantee you a return. A popular betting type among punters, it consists of four selections and 15 bets hence the name — four singles, six doubles, four trebles and a fourfold. Equivalent to a Yankee but with four singles, and only one selection must win to guarantee you a return. A wager consisting of five selections and 31 bets — five singles, ten doubles, ten trebles, five fourfolds, and one fivefold.
Only one selection must win to guarantee you a return. Also known as a Canadian, a Super Yankee is a bet on five selections consisting of 26 bets — ten doubles, ten trebles, five fourfolds and a fivefold accumulator. The Heinz bet is a six-selection bet consisting of 57 bets: 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 fourfolds, six fivefolds and a one sixfold accumulator.
A Lucky 63 is a bet featuring six selections and 63 bets, including: six singles, 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 fourfolds, six fivefolds and one sixfold. The Super Heinz is a bet on seven selections taking part in various events consisting of 21 doubles, 35 trebles, 35 fourfolds, 21 fivefolds, seven sixfolds, and a sevenfold accumulator which totals a huge bets. Two selections must win to ensure any returns. A Goliath is a bet on eight selections taking part in various events consisting of 28 doubles, 56 trebles, 70 fourfolds, 56 fivefolds, 28 sixfolds, eight sevenfolds and an eightfold accumulator totalling bets.
This is a bet on six selections composed of 26 bets: two patents 14 bets , one yankee 11 bets and a sixfold accumulator one bet. A Single Stakes About is an Any To Come bet consisting of two selections from events, these are then compiled to produce two bets derived from two singles.
Any return on each single up to the original stake amount is used to fund a further single on the other selection. A Double Stakes About is an Any To Come bet consisting of two selections partaking in different events, which are compiled to produce two bets derived from two singles.
Any return on each single, up to double the original stake amount, is used to fund a another single on the other selection. The Round Robin is a three selection wager compiled of ten bets: three doubles, one treble and three up-and-down single stakes about pairs. This forms three horizontal trebles, three vertical trebles and two diagonal trebles.
A straight forecast is correctly predicting the finishing order of the horses in first and second in a race. It costs double that of a traditional win bet and will yield some sort of return if the selection wins or is placed. The Placepot is another favourite for racegoers. Select a horse in each of the first six races at a specific racecourse on a single day, and if that horse finishes in the placings you win a share of the total pool.
One unplaced selection and the bet is off! Quite possibly the hardest bet to win. Correctly predict the first six winners at a specific racecourse on a single day to win a share of the pool. One wrong selection and the bet is off! If you want to work out your winnings from a multiple bet such as an accumulator, we recommend you use a betting calculator to do it for you. See our list of betting calculators here.
Many people choose to dress up for a day at the races and, although often not mandatory, it is considered to be part of the raceday experience. The Racing Post has compiled a list of everything you need to know when deciding what to wear at the races. Although far from compulsory in all enclosures, smart dress is the accepted dress code for racegoers. Trainers and shorts are widely regarded as unacceptable, although not forbidden in some enclosures or at some meetings. The classic Flat racing attire for men is a collared shirt with trousers and smart shoes.
Some choose to finish the look with a tie and blazer but this is personal preference, and to some extent determined by the weather. Jumps meetings tend to adopt a dress for the weather approach as opposed to a strict dress code, as most of the big meetings take place during the winter months. An old traditional among jumps fans is to wear tweed, but that is simply a personal preference.
Even when deciding what to wear to the Cheltenham Festival, it is best to dress for the weather, unless you are lucky enough to be a corporate guest, in which case a suit may be more appropriate. Many ladies attending Flat race meetings in the summer, associate a day at the races as a day to dress up in all their glitz and glamour, although this is not compulsory in many areas.
As with the gentlemen, it is a case of wearing weather-appropriate clothing in the winter, with heels not advisable in the likely wet conditions. Royal Ascot is a prestigious five-day meeting in June that is steeped in history, and one of its most traditional elements is the dress code. Strict standards of what to wear are set by the racecourse and failure to comply can result in entry being denied. For example, the Royal Enclosure demands all gentlemen wear a three-piece morning suit and top hat at all times.
Ladies must wear a hat or headpiece at all times, as well as conform to an extensive list of restrictions regarding their outfits. Ascot also recently introduced a rule that all gentlemen should be wearing socks. For full details of all dress codes, please refer to the individual racecourse websites, most of which provide great advice on what to wear for your day at the races.
There are two types of horse races, jumps and Flat, and each one incorporates different classes and types of races. The Classics are the most prestigious Flat races in Britain. They have been run for centuries and horses are bought and bred to try to win them. There are five Classics, all of which are contested only by three-year-olds:. A one mile race for 3-y-o colts. A one mile race for 3-y-o fillies.
Oaks — Run at Epsom racecourse in June. A one mile four furlong race for 3-y-o fillies. Derby — Run at Epsom racecourse in June. A one mile four furlong race for 3-y-o colts and fillies. St Leger — Run at Doncaster racecourse in September. A one mile six furlongs race for 3-y-o colts and fillies. All the Classics are classified as Group 1 races and top-class horses are campaigned towards them throughout their two-year-old and early three-year-old careers, when in the spring a number of them appear in Classic trial races.
Group races are the most well-known and the best races, divided into three categories — Group 1, 2 and 3. Many of them are restricted to certain age groups from two-year-olds to four-year-olds and older or to a specific gender eg fillies only and they are spread throughout the racing year to form a programme of races over different distances and at a range of racecourses. The highest level is a Group 1 race; these are the highlight events on the racing calendar.
Group 1 races are a test of class and all the horses run off level weights but allowances are given for three-year-old horses against older horses and for fillies and mares against colts and geldings. Group 2 and 3 races are still of high importance but are a step or two below the top tier in terms of quality.
In these races the weights are calculated in a similar manner to Group 1 contests, but there is also the addition of penalties to make the races more competitive. Penalties, in the form of extra weight carried by the horse, are given to horses who have won at an equal or higher grade within a certain timeframe. A Listed race is a further step down from Group level, that is just below Group 3, and the same weight penalties apply. The majority of horses end up competing in handicaps.
In a handicap race, each horse is allotted a weight based on its rating — each point represents 1lb. For instance, if a horse rated 90 carries 9st 8lb, a horse rated 88 will carry 9st 6lb. Handicap races are often restricted to a specified ratings band, for example The highest rating a horse can have in a Flat handicap is ; beyond that, they would have to compete in Group and Listed races. Some of the handicaps are highly valuable and historic races such as the Wokingham, Cesarewitch and Ebor regularly attract fields of 20 runners or more, if safety limits allow.
These top-level handicaps are rated as Class 2 handicaps; the lower the ratings band of horses who can compete, the lower the grade of handicap, the lowest being Class 7. Jumps horses compete from the age of three, with many starting later than that. Jump racing also known as National Hunt racing can be easily separated into five divisions:. National Hunt Flat races — commonly known as bumpers, these are for horses bred for jump racing.
No obstacles are jumped and the races are seen as a building block to a future career over hurdles or fences. Novice hurdling — Horses who begin the season having not won a hurdles race can compete in novice hurdles until the end of the season where they pick up their first hurdles win.
Hurdling — Horses can compete over hurdles in open company, racing in either Graded, handicap or selling company. Novice chasing — Similar to the novice hurdle division, the novice chasing division is for horses who begin the season without a win specifically over fences. They can run in novice chases until the end of the season of their first win over fences, or until another specified date.
Chasing — A division for horses running over fences in open company, again competing in either Graded, handicap or selling company. The grading system for jump racing follows the same rules as the Flat races, but races are called Graded races instead of Group races.
The highest level is Grade 1, where horses compete off the same weight but with allowances for age or gender , and this includes illustrious races such as the Cheltenham Gold Cup and the Champion Hurdle. One of the other key differences is that over jumps the handicap ratings are much higher than they are on the Flat. There are also Grade 3 handicaps over jumps, which are often highly prestigious prizes such as the Grand National and the Ladbrokes Trophy formerly the Hennessy Gold Cup.
Yet it was first staged only in Champions Day was not built from scratch, however. Up until , two of the biggest late-season fixtures in Britain were staged at Ascot and Newmarket. By combining and reshaping these meetings — and providing a massive prize-money boost — organisers created Qipco British Champions Day. The Champion Stakes was switched from Newmarket, where it had been run since These two races formed the foundation of Qipco British Champions Day but there were three other championship finals created by alterations to the racing programme.
In its short lifespan, Qipco British Champions Day has been graced by many stars of the turf but there is one who towers above them all. Organisers could not have chosen a better season to launch the championship raceday, as years one and two coincided with the rise of the greatest racehorse of all time. He signed off his three-year-old season at Ascot with a typically dominant success against the top milers Europe had to offer — but it was a year later that Qipco British Champions Day played host to one of the most celebrated days in the history of horseracing.
By now unbeaten in 13 races and recognised as the best of all time, Frankel returned to Qipco British Champions Day in for the final run of his career in the Champion Stakes. A sellout crowd of 32, packed the four-storey Ascot grandstand to bid their hero farewell. Amid the euphoria, his trainer Sir Henry Cecil was composed as he faced the media. Having been previously reluctant to measure Frankel against the greats, preferring to leave that judgement to others, Cecil could not help but let his guard slip this time.
The journey was over. The horse who so gloriously surpassed all those who went before him would race no more. And, eight months later, the trainer whose quiet defiance in the face of terminal illness had been a subplot throughout the Frankel story finally lost his battle with cancer. But that Champions Day will never be forgotten. The British Horseracing Authority had introduced strict new whip rules five days before Qipco British Champions Day which were fiercely opposed by jockeys and would ultimately trigger a PR disaster for British racing at the big meeting.
The new rules for the first time placed limits on the number of times riders were allowed to use their whip and stipulated that offending jockeys would lose their winning percentage of prize-money. It is amazing, I have never seen anything like it in my life. I think the jockeys should get together because it is impossible to work this way. The jockeys did indeed get together and 48 hours later their representatives were around a table with the BHA for crisis talks amid strike threats from the riders.
Despite a raft of changes to the rules, the acrimony continued for several months, with high-profile Irish jockeys Ruby Walsh and Johnny Murtagh threatening to boycott racing in Britain. It was not until the following March, one week before the start of the Cheltenham Festival, that the BHA and jockeys reached agreement on a final revision of the rules that returned greater powers of discretion to the stewards and significantly reduced the fines offending jockey would face.
