Great Yarmouth Racecourse (Great Yarmouth, Suffolk)
Tasha from Sales, August 2018
My friend and I travelled from quite far away to be at the races and we truly enjoyed it.
When we arrived we went to the bar/restaurant to have a drink before the next race started and we got talking to the couple at the table next to us, who happened to be regulars at the races. They were full of great tips and helped us place our very first bet. They even had a horse called Lady Mayfair who was competing that day. The couple advised us not to bet on their horse though as she had only been recently introduced to the races and she hadn’t participated in many, however if she did beat all odds and win then we would be invited to join them for a glass of champagne after the race.
The race began and it was ever so close, the horses we bet on were called Lucky Fox and Choco Box, unfortunately they didn’t win but to our surprise Lady Mayfair had a very impressive run and came second!
After the race we went to the pen where the horses were being cooled down after the race and I was very happy to see Lady Mayfair’s owners stroking and praising their horse. This was really nice to see, it was very clear to me that these people loved their horse. The races sometimes get bad reputation, with claims about it being unethical, however I believe this all falls down to the owner and I know Lady Mayfair is one happy horse! We congratulated the couple before walking back to the track to see the next race.
To conclude, our first time at the races was a really fun and exciting day.
Although it isn’t essential, I would recommend trying to learn a little bit about the races before going if this is your first time as there is a lot to learn.
