Make A Way for Ireland’s Premier Mid-summer Festival – Galway Races
High summer is simply majestic in Britain and Ireland. The unfamiliar sight of the sun and the long languid evenings lend themselves to festivals and frolics. Nowhere more so than the fabulous and world renowned Galway Races which this year are being staged from Monday July 29th to Sunday August 4th.
For seven enthralling days the capital of the West of Ireland becomes the beating heart of world horse racing. Galway Race Week has inspired balladeers, singers and poets, even prompting Ireland’s national poet W.B Yates to declare that ‘Delight makes all of the one mind, The riders upon the galloping horses, The crowd that closes in behind’.
As thousands descend on the ‘City of the Tribes’, the world horse racing community from Brisbane to Boston will be rubbing their hands in anticipation at the annual spectacle of top class racing that shows off the unrivalled passion of Irish horse racing in all its glory. This magical occasion runs late in to the evening – just leaving enough time for the thousands of thirsty punters that pour in to the city centre after the last race to watch the proverbial ‘sun go down on Galway Bay’.
If it’s too late to change your holiday plans, no need to despair. It’s still possible to follow all the week’s action from Galway. A minimum stake of just £1 gains you access to WHTV, William Hill’s exclusive in-house TV station. It streams every UK and Irish horse race live. You can follow all the races at your desktop, with your laptop or on your mobile handset for free with online horse betting at William Hill. Daily informative podcasts by top racing insiders and professionals helpfully explain the form and the going. There’s even an option to listen to the races live with William Hill Radio which broadcasts not to be missed daily race previews, gives expert tips and generally captures the trackside atmosphere. Betting through William Hill online also means that you get the best horse racing odds guaranteed on early prices or board prices which later lengthen.
As well as being able to follow Ireland’s premier mid-summer festival, another great incentive for signing up for online horse betting at William Hill is the bonuses and promotions listed on site. But for all those punting on a UK or Irish race, nothing can beat the William Hill Best Odds Guarantee. That’s a nice feature to bring to THE race meeting of the year!
