Horse Racing Weekends


You don’t have to walk with a cane and wear a long hat to enjoy a trip to Royal Ascot nor do you need to know the tail end of a donkey to enjoy a horse-racing event.

A visit to a racecourse on a stag weekend comes highly recommended especially on ladies day, HELLOOOO.

What’s not to like; excitement from watching your horse win, a fully stocked bar, an immense atmosphere and all your mates together, enjoying themselves.

Now, I am not sure about other stag companies however, most Horse Racing weekends DesignaVenture offer include transport to and from your hotel to the racecourse, 2 nights in a 3 or 4 star hotel with breakfast and a horse racing package which generally includes drink and food vouchers, a racing guide and a tote bet.

One of the biggest events of the horse-racing calendar is Royal Ascot, and your stag party can be there. This event is fantastic and has an atmosphere so electric you can charge up your phone on it.

So if you don't fancy doing an activity but need something to do on the Saturday, horse racing is a great stag do event.

Here are few bits of Terminology, which may help:

The parade ring
Where you can go and see the horses before they race

Handicap
Where weight has been added to a horse to make the race more equal

Steeplechase
A race over ditches, fences and water jumps

Accumulator Bet
When you bet on a number of races (one horse per race), each winning bet goes towards the next race and if you win we are talking big money

Bookmaker
A person licensed to take bets

Each Way
Your money is spread so if your horse comes first, second or third you win (how much you win will depend on where your horse comes in).

A Guaranteed Winner
No such thing
