Despite the huge range of gambling options now available online the favourite sports gambling activity in Ireland is still gambling on horse racing. The opportunity for sports gambling fans to follow a huge range of different sports through online sports gambling sites does not appear to have dampened our enthusiasm for horse race gambling in the slightest. In fact we can now indulge our passion for gambling on horse racing even more because we have instant access to information on horse race meetings being held all over the world and can now gamble on almost any race, anywhere from the comfort of our own home. As far as horse race gambling fans in Ireland and the UK are concerned we are now well into the national hunt racing season, and with Christmas just around the corner many fans of gambling on horse racing will be looking forward to the traditional Boxing Day meeting at Kempton, which of course features the King George V1 Chase as the main event. For those horse race gambling enthusiasts who always follow the classic races, the following day also sees the Coral Welsh National being run at Chepstow. These two classic races traditionally make up the feature race calendar over the Christmas period and are both always well supported by horse race gambling fans both at the course and through online sports gambling sites and betting shops. This year the Welsh National in particular looks like a hard race to call and the ante post betting odds with all the major online sports gambling sites are very close indeed. Many Irish fans of gambling on horse racing prefer the national hunt season and will already be preparing for the Cheltenham Festival in March, but in the meantime we wish them good luck over the Christmas period.
