Although football seems to dominate the sports news for most of the year, horse racing has long been one of the most popular sports in this country and shouldn’t be overlooked when it comes to thinking of birthday gift ideas for a sports fan. Not only are the races themselves exciting, but when you have a flutter on the outcome it takes the adrenaline rush to a whole new level, especially when you win.
A gift experience where the recipient can discover what happens behind the scenes in the world of horse racing is a fascinating and fun way to find out how the sport of kings works from the inside and makes an unusual and interesting birthday gift idea.
The day will start off with a tour of a trainer’s stable where the horses are kept in preparation for their big event and put through their paces to ensure that they have what it takes to be a winner. Then it’s off to the gallops, the appropriately named exercise yard where the horses get a chance to warm up, stretch their legs and prepare themselves for the race ahead.
The final destination is the members’ enclosure from where you can watch all the action close up, and because you will be with the experts, you can learn about form, how to place a bet and how to pick a winner. We can’t guarantee that you will make a fortune on the horses, but you will learn plenty about the sport, how the odds are worked out, how to judge which horse stands the best chance of romping home first leaving you with the winning ticket.
