The sun has warmed the grass and fresh green shoots have sprung up. Crops come away and blossom lines the road sides. Nature is waking up and you wake up with it.
Spring is when the country and country racing really comes alive, with new young horses with food and with fashion as we shake off the winter. C'mon up to a style of racing that's more personal, less crowded and more relaxed. See the horses up close and personal.
Get an easy place at the mounting yard, mingle with the crowd at the bookies and place a bet without having to queue for what seems like forever. Relax, get a drink and settle back with a great vantage point to watch the racing.
The country is where champion horses are bred. It’s where they get their first starts and take their early steps to glory. That’s why serious country punters have them on their radar well before they run in the city and often do well when that time comes.
