Did anyone watch the Grand National? Thousands of people across the UK love going to this spectacular event and are thrilled to be a part of it. Every year, racing enthusiasts all over the North West hire a limo with us to the famous Aintree racecourse so they can have a drink on the way and really get in the mood.
But just because the excitement of the Grand National has come to a close doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a good horse race. After all, the Grand National merely kicks off racing season so you have months left to enjoy.
If you are planning to head down to York Racecourse or Aintree Racecourse for some racing action, don’t forget to hire a limo with us. It’s much easier letting a chauffeur do the driving so you don’t have to worry about having a drink. It’s also a great way to make the occasion much more fun and memorable.
Here are some reasons people love going to the races…
It’s the roar of the crowd when your horse turns into the straight as the jockey drives the horse to just push through the finish which is why people keep coming back for more.
If you’ve been fortunate enough to experience the thrill of horseracing, you’ll know what we are talking about.
Watching your horse run is an exhilarating experience, especially if you have travelled down in a limo to get yourself in the mood on the way down.
Most of the moments in life that leave you feeling confused and perplexed are not particularly pleasant. Horse racing, however, is a different type of confusion – bringing nine minutes of chaos for even the veterans who thought they knew how the race would pan out.
Thoughts go through your mind like ‘is my horse still going?’ or ‘Where’s the favourite, I can’t see him?’ But the beauty is the uncertainty – all things are possible. If the confusion dissipated, it would be no-where near as interesting.
The horses and the jockeys
There’s nothing more beautiful than a racehorse and everyone else involved makes it a bit like a soap. You get caught in the characters – like the jockeys and the trainers – and you just can’t wait to see which horse will beat another.
There are many reasons to go to the races, but nothing compares to the memories of the day itself – and also of those memorable racehorses. The horses that will get imprinted into your memory will be dictated by the results of an enjoyable race.
Have you ever watched an old race you went to on YouTube? It’s a great pleasure because it reunites you with your day at the races.
If you fancy a journey to the races, we’ll provide you with an exquisite limo to travel in. We can help make your memories even more potent. Hire one of our limos and you can have fun on the way and the way back as well as at the race itself.
