any of you watching the racing this week. Yesterday was good but today was great from an Irish perspective. Its 7 Irish trained winners from 12 races. The racing has been excellent hopefully it will continue. Has anyone else an interest in National Hunt Racing.

I've never even been to the races, which is quite unbelievable considering where I come from and where I currently live - they both have prestigious race courses. It's not something I would watch on TV...but one of these days I most definately will go to an event.

I have no interest in watching TV horse racing or gambling but I did go once to Chepstow races for the Welsh Grand National a while back and it was an amazing atmosphere, no comparison to watching it on TV.

To see horses racing close up was majestic and exciting, I've not had the opportunity to go again but I would recommend anyone to experience it if only just once.
