Britain’s leading free-to-air racing programme following the sport of kings – and the country’s second highest ranking spectator sport behind football. Watch on Channel 4.
With the BBC abandoning its rights to broadcast horse racing on terrestrial TV in the UK, the only source of coverage for fans of the sport without cable or satellite is Channel 4 Racing.
This popular programme is generally only broadcast on Saturdays but the team will work from the big meetings, such as Royal Ascot and the Grand National, since there is a lot of interest in these events.
The programme also provides coverage of some of international classics from places like the US, Australia, France and Ireland.
Main presenter is Claire Balding, aided by Nick Luck, handle live links and interviews between the races.
Jockey interviews are conducted by Emma Spencer and Rishi Persad.
Analysis and commentaries are provided by former jockeys Mick Fitzgerald and Alice Plunkett with Jim McGrath and Graham Cunningham.
When Channel 4 renewed its interest in horse race coverage, coupled with the BBC ending theirs, the broadcaster decided to switch programme makers.
The new producers then controversially offloaded some of the programme's well-known presenters such as Jim McCririck.
However, the show is as popular as ever and not only is it broadcast in HD but some of the new camera angles and positions have enhanced coverage of the sport.
The same firm also makes The Morning Line which is a studio-based discussion programme on Channel 4 looking at the day's upcoming racing action. The guests are also given some money to bet with for charity.
While Channel 4 Racing
is the only free-to-air source of horse racing coverage in the UK, there are two other channels – At The Races
and Racing UK
–on satellite and other TV platforms.
