Horse Racing Events in Scandinavia

Horse racing is a popular spectator sport in the UK, and gambling on horseraces is the cornerstone of the British betting industry.

The two main forms of horse racing in the UK are unobstructed distances races, known as flat racing, and races over fences or over hurdles, known as National Hunt racing. Additionally there is another form of racing which is run on an altogether more informal and ad hoc basis, known as point to point racing.

Point to point is a form of steeplechasing for amateur riders. Like professional racing, it is run under the auspices of the governing and regulatory body for horse-racing in Great Britain, the British Horseracing Authority.

The UK has produced some of the greatest jockeys, including Sir Gordon Richards, usually considered the greatest jockey ever. There are between four and five hundred professional jockeys based in the UK.

Here's a list of notable horse racing events which take place annually in the UK, under the jurisdiction of the British Horseracing Authority.
