Horse racing and its tradition have always caught my imagination. No other event than these group 1 horse racing fests like the Kentucky derby and Royal Ascot have such an attraction on me. Not all horse racing is easy to predict though and as a somewhat aspiring amateur you want to know all ins and outs to make a choice based on solid arguments.
