    The UK is full of blokes who follow racing. Look at the comic strip Andy Capp. He tends to bet on "did not finish" horses, probably attracted by the long odds. HM is a racing fan, too, owning quite a number of them. Her horses seem to win fairly well.

    You bet, no pun intended - but mainly flat racing as I don't 'do' National Hunt racing as I hate seeing horses falling, often towards the end of a long race because they are just drop-dead tired.  The only plus is NH racing horses tend to be older.   Personally I wish Flat racehorses didn't start racing when they are still babies (just 2 years old).

    I'm a firm Frankie Dettori fan!!

    I also watch racing from America/Australia/Canada and other places around the world - whether or not there's a British involvement.

    No, that's difficult to do from here.

    I like to know what's going on with the Grand National, but other than that, I'm afraid I don't follow it.
