Top International Horse Races

LONDON, April 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

April 6th will see more Brits heading to the bookies than any other day of the year. No, it's not the X-Factor final, but John Smith Grand National weekend at Aintree. The John Smith Grand National is one of the highlights of the British horseracing calendar, on which over a quarter of the UK's population are estimated to enjoy a flutter. And it's easy to see why, as horseracing can offer an adrenaline rush like no other, as these majestic animals beat their way around the tracks at record speed.

Below are the crème de la crème of horse races from around the world:

The Melbourne Cup, Australia

The first Tuesday in November is one of the most celebrated events in the Australian calendar, when the Aussies don their glad rags and host massive parties to celebrate Melbourne Cup Day. With more pomp and ceremony than is usually expected of our cousins Down Under - and over AUS$6 million in prize money - this race is truly something worth getting excited about.

The Kentucky Derby, USA

The premier event in the USA's horseracing circuit, the Kentucky Derby has perhaps the biggest build-up in the racing world, with the two-minute race celebrated with over a week of parades, fireworks, parties and more. The Kentucky Derby is truly an experience that's well worth the journey stateside.

The Dubai World Cup, UAE

Although this is one of the younger international races - the first event was held in 1996 - the Dubai World Cup is certainly one of the most grown-up in the glamour stakes. Fashion is almost as much of an event as the race itself, with some of the most exciting and bizarre hats and outfits on show as are likely to be seen anywhere. As the birthplace of thoroughbred horses, Dubai is the ultimate destination for a race.
