Horses have been revered for millennia — and for good reason. Beauty aside, they are powerful animals that have supported humans in multiple ways throughout history.
That history goes way back, as does the sport of horse racing. It is one of the oldest sports and surprisingly hasn’t changed much since ancient times. In horse racing, two or more jockeys racehorses a set distance to determine the fastest. Horses may also race alone.
A day at the races isn’t just about the horses, though. It’s an exciting event for all. Get there early to grab some food or drinks, check out the grounds, and place a bet. There are multiple ways to place bets —appealing to the gambler in all of us. If fashion is more your thing, get an eyeful of the women in colorful dresses and elaborate hats. Don’t forget to scope out the best place to watch the races. The main event is a show of intense pride, strength, and competition.
You don’t want to miss it! And now you don’t have to. We’ve brought this equestrian sport into the comfort of your own home with the best horse racing board games. So grab your seat, place your bet, and get ready to play. We’re off to the races!
