Live Horseracing at RacingUK - Paddy Power Gold CupThe Saturday RUK Feature

Racing UK is a subscription based Horse Racing Channel showing live racing from the UK throughout the year from 30 racecourses around the country. The channel launched in 2004 and it shows some of the highest quality racing from the top tracks on a regular basis with lover coverage of flag ship courses like Cheltenham, Aintree and Newmarket among many others. Along with At The Races, Racing UK is one of two dedicated racing channels on offer in the UK, they do differ though with Racing UK running on a subscription basis opposed to the advertising which brings revenue to At The Races.

There is no doubt that Racing UK falls down against At The Races when it comes to the quantity of racing it shows but it more than makes up for that with quailty as the majortiy of the flagship courses are covered by the Channel. The Channel is owned by Racecourse Media Group Ltd who themselves are the organisation in charge of the media rights for the 30 courses shown by Racing UK. It has to be said that bar Ascot the majority of the top class courses are covered by this deal making Racing UK a very attractive proposition for racing fans and punters, this is despite the fact that a subscription fee system is in place for the channel. Racing UK has coverage of the biggest meetings of the year including the Cheltenham Festival, the Grand National and the Guineas Festival at Newmarket on the flat among many others.

These big races and meetings on Racing UK are shared with terrestrial TV with the BBC and Channel 4 sharing coverage, this does dent the viewing figures of Racing UK but they can offer a service tailored to the hard course racing fan which the main stream channels cannot. Outside of any horse racing odds from Ascot punters can be sure that the large majority of the big races shown on terrestrial TV will be available at the same time on Racing UK in a more in depth and specialist style.

Racing UK has a raft of top quality presenters in their ranks with the likes of Nick Luck, Stewart Machin and Lydia Hislop all regulars on course for the channel for the big races and meetings. It has to be said that Racing UK is perhaps the more serious channel compared to is more colourful rival in At The Races, this is an approach that is likely to please the experienced racing enthusiast while hardly encouraging potential younger new punters to the sport.

A big bonus for Racing UK is their partnership with pubs and clubs across the country allowing the channel to be shown in various establishments to boost the awareness of the channel, there is no doubt that this sort of deal does succeed in taking the sport and their particular brand to a wider audience than the norm in racing.

Mark Your Card - Saturday Morning

Mark Your Card is a regular show on Racing UK each Saturday morning and is hown one hour before live racing starts, it is a popular show with punters as they look to make their bets on the big races. It is a show hosted from the studio by one of the main presenters and along with an expert they go through the days big races to see if they can pick out one or two winners. It is a reasonably informal show with the main contenders in a given big race being given positives and negatives with the hope of finding the potential winner.
