The season opener at Taunton Racecourse is a great way to kick off the start of a new racing season. It usually takes place towards the end of October and is always going to attract large crowds. There is usually a spooky air in the fleeing around Halloween time and there are usually seven races as part of this meeting.
The longest race of the meeting is the Taunton Racecourse Owners Club Handicap Hurdle Race that takes place across three miles. The standout race of the day is the Thatchers Cider Novices’ Handicap Steeplechase that carries a prize fund of £11,800.
The conditions at this time of year can be very testing, so stamina is a must over the longer races rather than speed. To find a good racing betting site, you can check out Roger.com which has a ton of reviews of the leading options on the market today.
