Keeping tracks with horse racing news and updates in the UK is an essential part of being a horse racing fan or a serious horse racing bettor who regularly attend the racebook, since nothing goes around in these, without awareness of what goes in and outside the tracks.

News Feeds Sources

Though the desire is to attend as much as races and special events as possible, this is an unrealistic approach. Luckily, each fan or bettor follows specific courses and races that suit in terms of popularity, geographic location and familiarity with the horses, jockeys and trainers so the amount of is significantly reduced. There is a limit to how much races a person can attend and it is here where news and updates emerge to take place and cover the remainder of events that otherwise would have been missed.

There are several types of sources from which relevant information regarding UK horse courses can be obtained.


There are two Major TV channels in the UK that broadcast horse racing news in the UK. One is RUK (Racing UK – Sky 432) and the other is ATR (At the Races – Sky 415), both covering an almost equal number of racecourses. These TV channels are exclusively horse racing news channels and provide not only live race broadcasting but also offer interpretations made by commentators, reviews and race cards.

Online News

Online news for British horse racing news is probably the most convenient way to stay ahead in this high pace sport. Apart from live race broadcasting, online horse betting and horse racing news websites provide comprehensive information for upcoming races, race cards, race results, interpretation and betting tips. In addition, these sites also provide general information about race courses locations, going reports, personal blogs and more.

Newspaper’s Sport Section

Much like horse racing news websites, papers also provide valuable information about races, results and going reports but they lack availability and constant reports given by websites and TV channels. Nevertheless, newspapers still make a rich and reliable source of information regarding horse racing news.
