    But that isn’t the reason why horse racing with William Hill is so highly thought of today. In such a competitive market, we’re talking hundreds (if not thousands) of horse racing betting sites available – all aiming to be the best in the business – so history isn’t enough.

William Hill Horse Racing Betting on Big Events

Although William Hill horse racing is always at a high standard, we really think they are at their absolute best when it comes to the big events.

Because there is so much so much competition during the likes of the Grand National or Cheltenham, bookies are pushed to give you the best of everything.

We’re talking special coverage on William Hill horse racing radio, brilliantly competitive odds, and an awesome assortment of special markets.

Perhaps best of all are the promotional offers for these events. At the most recent Grand National, for instance, you could get a £10 free bet for the same stake – and that’s just one example. If you are new to betting on horse racing and want to give it a try, and such an event happens to be coming up, we’d say these events are pretty much an ideal time to do so.

Here's a quick list of upcoming horse racing events we think are perfect opportunities to experience betting on the horses at William:
