Welcome to Horseracing – International . COM – a project established in 2010.
What’s this site about? All about the global aspect of horse racing. I want to celebrate the diversity of this wonderful sport. A mix of news, opinions, photos, big race previews and a bit of betting.
Who am I? A German horse racing enthusiast, writer & photographer, who lives in the land of the horse – Ireland.
What do I love about horses and racing? Everything! – though I’ve got a slight preference for the global game of flat racing. I love the speed and admire fast horses. However let’s be clear on that, there isn’t much that beats opening Tuesday of the Cheltenham Festival – which arguably is the finest day of horse racing.
What makes horses and racing so special? For me it really is the pure visual impression of raw power, evident in every move of these wonderful creatures. There isn’t anything more elegant yet more raw and more stunningly beautiful than a top class thoroughbred approaching the final furlong, hard held on the bridle, cruising past his rivals while showing class, authority, speed and natural beauty.
Betting? Yes. I don’t claim to be the best punter in the world but I know one or two things about horses and betting. I’m confident enough to say my selections yield in a profit at the end of the year. Though I have evolved over the years and have adopted a more statistic led approach these days.
I sincerely hope you enjoy this site. If you’ve got any feedback, please feel encouraged to get in touch. Your opinions are certainly valued.
All the best,
