When it comes to sports gambling in Ireland there can be no doubt that gambling on horse racing is the overwhelmingly favourite sports gambling activity. The Irish love of horses and horse race gambling has become part of our culture and it is difficult to see that any other form of sports gambling will ever come close to competing for the top spot. Irish trainers produce winners year after year in races all over the world, and our jockeys are equally successful. In fact we are so addicted to gambling on horse racing that many of us specifically arrange our holidays so that we can travel to big horse racing meetings such as Cheltenham, where Irish punters are regularly a large percentage of the crowd. With winter approaching all too rapidly horse race gambling fans will soon be contemplating the end of the flat racing season and the start of jump racing, but we still have some big races to come. Today at the Curragh we have the Irish Cambridgeshire to consider and horse race gambling fans will note that the race is very close to call, leading to some fairly big quoted odds. Next up is the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown on the 11th September, followed by the St. Leger at Doncaster on Saturday the 12th and the Ayr Gold Cup a week later. There are still plenty of opportunities for fans of gambling on flat racing to enjoy their horse race gambling before the end of the season, although for most Irish horse race gambling enthusiasts gambling on horse racing is an all year round activity irrespective of whether it is flat racing or over the jumps.
