Christmas Gifts For Horse Racing Fans
Published on 05/11/19
If one of your loved ones is a big horse racing fan you might think they’re a hard person to buy Christmas gifts for – but there are loads of horse racing-themed Christmas gifts that will put a smile on their face. Below you find a list of some great Christmas gifts for Horse Racing fans.
A Share In A Racehorse
Racehorse ownership can be very expensive, but many horse racing organizations or stables run syndicates that allow you to own a small share of a racehorse. This will give your horse racing fan a chance to experience the thrill of owning a winner and potentially pick up some prize money.
Being part of a syndicate also means you get the enjoyment of being a racehorse owner for a fraction of the cost of owning a horse by yourself. Many syndicates also take it in turns to give owners the chance to see their horse run at the races, whilst regular newsletters and updates are always something to look forward to.
Luxury Christmas Gifts For Horse Racing Fans
If you want to buy a gift for special horse racing fan in your life, how about treating them to a luxury race day experience.
Examples of these include the British Pullman to Glorious Goodwood Experience, in which you’ll travel to and from Glorious Goodwood in style on the British Pullman train and enjoy fine dining whilst on board.
Other similar trips include the Belmond British Pullman Grand National Luxury Train Journey to the Grand National Meeting at Aintree in April.
A Day At The Races
Most horse racing fans love a day at the races, where they’ll get the chance to peruse the horses in the parade ring, see their favourite jockeys up close and personal, and do battle with the bookies in the betting ring.
You can book tickets for two or more people in one of the fantastic restaurants or hospitality tents that many racecourses offer. You can enjoy fine dining and a few drinks in between races, making your day at the races a day to remember.
You might want to sneakily ask a couple of questions first, such as what is your horse racing fan’s favourite racecourse of whether they prefer flat racing or jumps racing. Then simply search for the racecourse’s official website online where you’ll be able to book the kind of day at the races you’re looking for.
Support the Injured Jockeys Fund
If you’re just looking for Christmas stocking fillers for the horse racing fan in your life, check out the shop on the Injured Jockey’s fund website. You’ll find all sorts of gifts for horse racing fans such as calendars and diaries, food and confectionery, and clothes and accessories. There are also fun games such as Injured Jockey’s Fund Monopoly, as well as many books and puzzles.
If your horse racing fan also has an appreciation of art, you might want to consider buying them one of the Injured Jockey Fund’s limited edition prints of some of the most popular horses ever to have raced.
Horse Racing Books
Horse racing is a world full of interesting stories that have been made into books, from professionals pulling off big gambles to amazing autobiographies of some of the biggest characters in the game.
Horse racing books that look sure to be popular gifts for horse racing fans this Christmas include The Triumph of Henry Cecil, The Complete Encyclopedia of Horse Racing, and Sixty Years of Jump Racing. You’ll also find loads of books about betting strategies and loads more interesting ideas to fill your Horse racing fan’s Christmas stocking.
A Subscription to a Horse Racing Publication
Many horse racing fans read horse racing publications such as the Racing Post, the Racing Post Weekender, or Racing Ahead and a subscription to these could be a nice present for someone you love.
It just depends how much you want to spend. Racing Ahead is a monthly publication, so that won’t cost you too much.
The Racing Post Weekender is a weekly publication, so that will cost you a bit more. Meanwhile, the Racing Post is a daily publication, so that will set you back a bit.
Most of these publications are available in newspaper form or as an online subscription, with the latter normally being a cheaper alternative.
A Subscription to a Top Betting Tipster Service
If your horse racing fan loves a bet but isn’t good at picking winners, a subscription to a professional horse racing betting tipster service can be a great gift. Not only will they receive tips regularly, but they’ll also learn valuable betting lessons such as how to operate a betting bank and staking plan.
Subscriptions to betting tipster sites are normally monthly, so you only need to pay one installment upfront. The best run betting tipster services also allow you to cancel your subscription at any time and will even offer you a refund if you or your horse racing fan change your mind.
If you subscribe to the best horse racing tipsters, there’s also a great chance your horse racing fan will start winning rather than losing – so just imagine the Christmas present you might get next year!
