I have a suggestion for a new forum Brian...

Horse racing forum..... Ok, not many members here may be excited by this prospect but this Is my delemma.

In the UK, Horse Racing Is the 2nd biggest sport. Top race horses even have their own twitter accounts and fan bases.
Serious race goers like myself have few forums here so must of us use facebook.
We'd like a nice friendly forum where we can discuss up and coming races etc but I just dare not Introduce my racing friends to the forum I have been on for the personal attacks on members.
There are members there who would relish In apart the newbie's If I they joined.... some get off on It I'm sure.

It's just a suggestion. We can also Include US racing. I would certainly reccomend 24 to people I know In racing circles.

I think horse racing is a good idea. :) I think we'd just have to be careful to steer the conversation away from wagers and such. I'm not sure what the implications of that would be. Does anyone know?

placing and talking about bets on the forum is a very bad idea to start with could open the door for all sorts of legal issues, so if we do have a racing forum make sure the rule states no placing or talking about who they bet on

The only time a horse racing forum Is Illegal Is when tips and Information are being sold. Otherwise people are free to discuss what they are betting on.

There are a few In the UK but they tend to be rather formal with too many experts that frighten off the amateurs.

To give you an Idea, this Is the most popular horse racing forum In the UK....... As long as It Is a chat forum and nothing Is being sold for profit, any tips, bets etc can be discussed.

Have a look Brian and see what you think.

take into account what the common everyday people in general know about horse racing, not too much so talking about what you bet on can be seen in their eyes as an issue or giving out info
