welcome to watch UK Horse vs USA Horse Racing Live. You have total amnesia. All you are told is your name and that you loved Thoroughbred racing, but you don't know why and cannot recall actually following the sport. You don't even know if you live in the United States or Europe. You have to start taking baby steps and learn to love racing all over again. You decide to spend a year in the States and a year in Europe and then decide which racing you like best and where you want to live.
BEAUTY - A big advantage to Europe to start off. The beautiful, lush grass courses, the maze of white railing, uphill and downhill runs, and horses, without lead ponies, turned out in impeccable condition, escorted by well-dressed lads (grooms).
Whether at Royal Ascot, Epsom on Derby Day, Glorious Goodwood, or small tracks like Salisbury and Bath, racing in England is a canvas of gorgeous colors and images. And there is nothing as dazzling to the eye as the Longchamp's magnificent grass course or the vast expanse of the Curragh.
Several of the American tracks do present spectacular backdrops, such as the San Gabriel Mountains beyond Santa Anita and the miles of gentle rolling hills beyond Keeneland, and those tracks with scenic infields, adorned by lakes, flowers, and a variety of greenery and birdlife. But the racetracks themselves cannot compare with those in Europe.
And the American horses, leaning on their lead ponies as if they were security blankets, are not as pleasing to the eye as the Europeans as they ramble down the stretch after being let go by their lads, striding out magnificently on their way to the starting gate.
