Upcoming 2021 Horse Racing events, fixtures, and Schedule Results

Did you know that any activity involving the Equus species or horses is known as an equestrian? And that means that horse racing is an equestrian performance sport. Horse races vary in different countries as each country develops its traditions around the sport. 

Some of the variations include running over obstacles, different distances, or restricting races to specific breeds. In some cases, horses carry different weights to determine their abilities which are known as handicapping. Although sometimes horses are purely there for sport, the primary interest is the gambling aspect. So, here are the significant events, fixtures, and results.
