Horseracing is a global sport often spanning three diverse sectors - sport, betting and the rural economy. More than 200 million racing fans worldwide attend events and over $100 billion is gambled on races each year.
The UK Racing industry is one of the largest and most sophisticated in the world, and among UK sports is second only to football in terms of attendances, jobs supported, tax contribution and capital investment.

We have advised parties involved in over £300 million of capital investment in the sport over the last five years, and we carried out the most extensive study of the racing industry through the Economic Impact of British Racing report.
