    I love horse racing, and I believe that this sport is one of the most interesting for betting right now. So I am not suprised with the fact that Betfair bought tv rights for this races, and this will benefit their horse racing offer that is for sure. It would be nice ito see would they post races on the site to watch

    The Horse racing is an exiting and traditional sport and a fun way to gamble, unfortunately in my country it is not very popular and you can't see any live races. I enjoy to risk a few euros from time to time and with the popularity that Betfair has all across the world this could make this sport more popular.
