One of the oldest spectator sports of all time, Horse Racing has been around since the olden Greek times dating back 648 BC, when chariot, famous horse racing tracks, and horse races formed an important aspect of the Olympics. This sense of antiquity is one of the most important factors in giving the races the kind of regal aura they now possess.
It is truly a worthy experience to feel the collective gasp of an audience around you as a leading horse falls short or stumbles, to experience the collective adrenalin surging all around you as people edge closer to the seat, lean in closer to follow the charge of the thoroughbreds as they barrel on towards the finish line. The only way to understand that sense of grandeur and excitement is getting seated at the horse racing tracks.
