RACES - LIVE AND REPLAY SERVICES: There are many options on the internet and cable services to watch horse racing.  HRTV (online or via television cable) runs most of the major races in England and Ireland, as well as the U.S.  Because of the time difference, the races can be viewed in the U.S. in the morning hours.  My favorite, and free, service is    You do have to set up an account but there is no pressure to bet, and you can choose tracks all over the world, including Australia, Japan, England, Ireland.  Give it a try.

Probably one of the easiest places to watch replays of races from all over the world is the Thoroughbred Daily News.  A free online publication, you do have to register to be able to watch the race replays.  They post them fairly quickly, so it requires very little expertise to check in after the big races to see when they are posted.  This is especially handy for races around the world, including Great Britain, Ireland, France, Australia.  Check it out:
