Any time is suitable for a visit to the romantic and inspiring climes of Scotland, but June is really the best month as far as horse racing enthusiasts are concerned. No other place can match Scotland’s heart warming efforts to bring entire families together at scenic race tracks. Horse racing blends seamlessly with other forms of recreation in this historic and beguiling land.
Musselburgh leads the June horse racing calendar with an event to celebrate a local soccer team’s recent successes. Team stars will grace horse racing with their presence on the 3rd of the month. Punters can add to their winnings by collecting autographs! Children can get some helpful coaching tips, and race track authorities have thoughtfully planned a separate enclosure for young people. It is a wonderful outing opportunity for people of all ages.
The following weekend will witness special events for women at the Lothian race track apart from Musselburgh. Horse racing is always an occasion for people to look their best, but only the Scottish are gallant enough to offer a handsome cash prize for the best dressed lady! An exciting Steeplechase with family entertainment in tow, also feature for this weekend.
All race tracks can emulate the excellent Scottish example of combining horse racing with fashion events for women and entertainment for children. It certainly adds value for the family, and increases the vacation attraction for visitors to the fabled countryside.
