WHAT ARE THE BEST UPCOMING RACES IN 2022?

By HRI Foreign Staff — There is no doubt that 2022 has already been another great year for horse racing and has seen some superb action take place. For example, who can forget Rich Strike coming out on top in the Kentucky Derby, or Mo Donegal coming first in the Belmont Stakes? Of course, we are not done with the action for 2022 just yet and there are still some awesome upcoming races to keep an eye out for. This is true not just in the US but also for top-class races around the world.

But why is it worth taking stock of the best upcoming races for the rest of 2022 now? It certainly makes sense if you like to bet online and bring more fun into horse racing by placing wagers on the sport. By knowing which top races are still to come, you can not only get ready to bet on them but also start to do your research on which bets to make. Even if you do not bet on races, knowing which top ones are still to come will mean that you do not miss catching them on TV or online!

But what are some of the most awesome horse races still to enjoy in 2022?

Cazoo St Leger Festival–September 2022

One of the most famous events still to come in 2022 is the Cazoo St Leger Festival at Doncaster racecourse in the UK. This event actually takes place over 4 days and culminates with the famous St Leger Stakes race on 10th September 2022.

As one of the highlights of the global flat racing season, it always attracts big crowds to the course and plenty of people also watch it on TV/via online streaming services. It is also an event that people like to bet on and there are plenty of top-class races to get involved with. Before the final St Leger Day on the 10th, each day of the festival has its own flavor. This includes Leger Legends Day on day one and Ladies Day on day two.

Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe–October 2022

Another major race to still keep an eye out for in 2022 is the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. This will take place at the Longchamp’s track in Paris, France, on the 1st and 2nd of October. Billed as ‘the world’s best horse race’, it is certainly one to tune in for on TV or stream via online racing platforms.

As you would expect for a race held in Paris, this event is known for its chic crowd and sense of style. It also attracts the very best horses, jockeys, and trainers to compete in the multiple races held across the two days. If you like catching the very best in global horse racing, this is a top event to enjoy.

Melbourne Cup–November 2022

Taking place on 1st November 2022, the Melbourne Cup is arguably the jewel in Australia’s horse racing crown. It is held at Flemington racecourse and has been won by some top horses in the past, such as Saintly and Makybe Diva.

With prize money totaling $5.6 million, it is also one of the richest events in global horse racing. With around 100,000 people expected to attend and many more watching from home, this is set to be another stunning spectacle in 2022.

Breeders Cup–November 2022

Next to the 3 Triple Crown races, the Breeders Cup is the top event in the US racing calendar. Indeed, it is the crème de la crème of US racing for many and horse racing’s World Cup. 2022’s edition takes place on the 4th and 5th of November at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky.

As usual, this high-profile event will include the best horses and jockeys around for racegoers to watch in action. The event itself consists of 14 races spread across the two days and is the pinnacle of racing for every trainer, jockey, and owner on the planet. With a lively crowd, celeb racegoers, and glamourous fashion to see, it really is a top event. It is also a race with lots of history and there are some interesting Breeders Cup stories to enjoy.

Horse Racing in 2022 Still has so Much to Offer

As the above shows, 2022 is a year that still has much to offer to fans of the sport. Although most of the major US races might have taken place now, there is still the Breeders Cup and some top-class overseas events to keep an eye out for. This means that the thrills, spills, and excitement that racing offers, are not done for the year yet!
