8 Countries With Top Class Racing You Need To See!

A real around the World feel to the article this week as we look at all those far flung places you can get a bet on with Racebets – after all, a winner is a winner whatever way you look at it, though you can still find our other daily horse racing tips here.

Racing Around The Globe

Despite our natural focus on all things local there are plenty of up and coming jurisdictions as well as others better established whose racing is getting better year on year, with Japan the obvious example.

We may not know too much about their trainers and jockeys (yet) but Almond Eye showed just how good their best can be with an easy win on Dubai World Cup night, and she seems sure to remain a force to reckon with wherever connections send her.

This week they have a pair of group two’s to look at with the Sankeo Sports Sho from Tokyo the one we will look at.

Nothing really stands out as the proverbial good thing, but it seems fair to suggest that MOZU ASCOT has solid looking chances, and if he can reproduce the sort of effort that saw him take the Yasuda Kinen last season then this is the son of Frankel’s for the taking.

South Africa is a huge racing nation with meetings every day of the week from such exotic sounding tracks as Vaal and Flamingo Park. This Saturday they race at Durbanville and Turffontein, though the majority of contests this weekend are maidens and are perhaps best watched for future reference.

In Italy, they have some decent racing on a regular basis which are well worth a look as are Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, and India, with a total of forty (yes 40!), countries covered in detail by Racebets, there really is something for everyone.

United States Racing and Tips

To round off our article this week, the United States have to be added to any list and this weekend sees a pair of Group Two’s with the Charles Town Classic and the Dixiana Elkhorn Classic, the first from Charles Town and the second from Keeneland.

With $1,000,000 up for grabs the Charlestown Classic over a mile and a furlong has attracted a high-class field and I have it down to a match between two if I am reading the form correctly.

War Story is reported to have put in some pretty serious trackwork before he returns from a well-deserved (and some would say overdue) break and looks a major player, but preference is for DIAMOND KING who looked as if he has improved considerably from three to four when winning at Gulfstream Park on his return.

He has plenty of early speed which is a plus at this track and looks the one they all have to beat on Saturday evening at 10.37pm UK time.

On to our final race and the Dixiana Elkhorn Classic looks an interesting race down in Kentucky and due off at 10.30pm UK time.

It’s not the easiest race to call but it may be worth giving another chance to TIZ A SLAM (Each Way) who has some solid Woodbine form to his name from last season and he could upset them all with a clear run if coming on for his last outing as expected.
