Horse Racing Sports Holidays and Tours

As with ITC Sports Travel, our sister company Horse Racing Abroad (HRA) is a long-established, independent tour operator, renowned for its horse racing holidays, industry connections and insight into the racing world, allowing us to take you closer to the action than other companies can even dream about! The relationships that ensure we deliver such experiences have been nurtured by its owner and founder Ian Fry, who remains an integral part of the operation today.

A year-round tour programme takes in the best flat and National Hunt meetings from around the world, the undoubted highlight being the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Horse Racing Abroad’s private Pavilion Grandstand at Longchamp is the envy of all; nobody else can offer reserved seating from such a prime position, the best racecourse catering, special betting facilities and English race commentaries. It’s no wonder that many famous faces from within the British and Irish racing fraternities are to be seen enjoying the facilities – it really is the only place to be!

Other highlights for 2017 include the popular Coolmore & The Irish Guineas, the Irish Champions Weekend, and our exclusive Dubai World Cup tour.
