The majority of the big races take place over the weekend in the UK and Ireland with Saturday the most popular day with punters.

UK/Ireland TV Racing Providers
There are two main Horse Racing dedicated TV channels in the UK with At The Races and Racing UK sharing the 60 tracks across the country between them, they both show live racing throughout the year but offer very different styles of presentation to leave punters with a choice. At the Races has the advanatge in the fact that they show more live racing with their contract with the Irish Racing but Racing UK clearly has the edge in terms of the quality of the action from the UK.
As well as the two Racing channels there is always a good amount of Horse Racing Coverage on terrestrial TV in the UK with Channel 4 in particular the home to of plenty of top racing each Saturday. The BBC also has its fair share of the very best racing and they continue to support events like the Grand National, the Epsom Derby and Royal Ascot alongside the specialist channels. In Ireland we see RTE play host to the majority of the major races across the country and as a public free-to-air broadcaster it plays a big part in taking the sport to a wider audience.
