Newbury Racecourse | Al Shaqab Lockinge Day
Newbury Racecourse is a flat racing event, the group 1 Al Shaqab Lockinge stakes is one of the best races of its kind and a great day out with live music after racing. I was invited to attend the sporting event to experience the best racing events around.
When I arrived at the event, you walk through the open grounds and by 11 am it’s already flooded with people, everyone excited to get betting and have a great day.
I walked upstairs to find my box, I was one of the first to arrive, and I was glad I was, I walked through this amazing box with food, drink and a beautifully designed room ready to get started.
I’m not going to lie, my knowledge of racing and betting was very limited, but I wasn’t too bothered as everyone there was friendly and helped me picked the right horses and showed me how to do it.
Before you know it I knew the ins and outs, and I was betting like a real professional, okay yes I didn’t win anything, but I wasn’t actually that bothered, it’s that thrill of seeing your horse come round and everyone cheering on holding onto their betting sheets keeping their fingers crossed.
The food served was lovely, Newbury Racecourse know how to treat you right, from curry to chicken and snacks in between I was very well fed as they were also small bowls you can pick and choose what you like!
It was such a lovely event, in such a great place. I couldn’t have asked for a better day; I recommend it to anyone that wants to try something new.
