    Does anyone know of any smartphone compatible live racing streams that would play on my Samsung Galaxy Note? I know that most of the UK bookmakers offer bet-to-watch streams and Racing UK offer a £10 monthly subscription service to watch their racing channel on your phone, but I'm looking for a completely free stream.

    It's pretty easy find free live streams for soccer, basketball, baseball, football, golf, tennis etc, but I've never been able to find a live stream of horse racing that works on my phone?

    I'm primarily interested in horse racing from the United Kingdom and Ireland but I'd also love to hear about any free live videos from racetracks in the United States, Australia, South Africa, France, etc...

    Thanks Guys :D

    Hey Chelsea

    If you are looking for a live stream of UK horse racing then Bet365 is the cheapest option. A number of United States horse racing tracks offer live streams or replays of their races for free on the internet. Some of these racing live streams require you to register first but others don't.



    If you are planning to place a bet on any UK or Irish race then the easiest thing to do is place a bet via the Bet365 iPhone or Android app and you'll be able to watch the race on your smartphone or tablet. Watch Racing on Bet365 Mobile A stream will be available from your phone or tablet a few minutes from the off providing you place a £1 or 50p each way bet or greater on any race. Uniquely, Bet365 also stream thousands of other live sports events every year via their website and apps, including golf, soccer, tennis (Wimbledon/French Open), basketball (NBA) and much more. The great thing is you can watch these live feed for free once you have a funded account, there is no requirement to place a bet.


    If your interest in horse racing extends beyond racecourses in the United Kingdom and Ireland then PP are worth investigation also as they are the only online bookmaker to also stream horse races from Dubai, South America and South Africa. To watch any race from your smartphone you'll just need to place a one pound or one euro wager on a race. Watch Horse Racing via Paddy Power Mobile.


    William Hill now live stream Australian horse racing from the states of Victoria and New South Wales (NSW) for free to all their customers. You can watch on any desktop or mobile device providing you have an account with William Hill Australia. Unlike with Paddy Power and Bet365, you are not required to wager to access the live racing.

    Do you need to have a Flash enabled tablet and phone to watch these? I presume I can't watch these on my iPad?

    Hi Rosemary,

    Some of the live videos do require Flash so you won't be able to watch them on the iPad unless you use an app like Skyfire that allows you to watch Flash vidoes on iOS devices. Some racecourses like Turfway Park offer their videos via Youtube so they should play on any mobile device.

    For advice on the best horse race betting apps you should visit our Horse Racing section.

    If you would like to watch horse racing live on your Android phone or tablet, you should try downloading the FilmOn app which allows you to watch live streams of television channels on any mobile device. For instance, in the United Kingdom and Ireland you can watch a live stream of Channel 4 which broadcasts the Cheltenham Festival, The Grand National and Royal Ascot. The app is free and the Android apk install file can be downloaded from

    I'm based in the United Kingdom and FilmOn is great for watching UK racing on Channel 4 but is there anyway to watch Australian, U.S. and French horse racing using the FilmOn app?

    Yes, when you launch FilmOn it checks the location of your IP address to determine what country you are living in and then it loads the free terrestrial channels for that country. If you use a VPN then you can trick the FilmOn app into thinking you are in the United States, Australia, France, South Africa or anywhere and it will load a different set of TV channels. are an excellent VPN with servers in 53 countries so that should give you plenty of options for watching horse racing from around the globe.

    This is a pretty thorough guide to all the horse racing streaming apps for racing in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, South Africa and the United States - Watch Horse Racing Apps Guide

    In the United Kingdom, Channel 4 has now got the broadcasting rights for the Grand National, Royal Ascot, the Epsom Derby and the Cheltenham Festival. Their 4 On Demand app doesn't stream the channel live but you can watch a repeats of broadcasts and highlight shows after. I think you do need to be be living in the United Kingdom or Ireland for the app to work.

    The main Irish broadcaster RTE (the Irish equivalent of the BBC) also offer pretty good coverage of UK and Irish horse racing. If you are based in Ireland or use an Irish VPN you can watch live streams. Users of the RTE Player app for iPhone and Android in other countries can use the apps extensive replay service to catch up on big races from Cheltenham, Ascot, Leopardstown, Fairyhouse, Curragh, Galway, Listowel and more.

    Are there any apps for watching live horse racing from Australia? Particularly from these racecourses - Belmont Park (Perth), Flemington, Gold Coast and Victoria Racecourse.

    The horse racing graphics are a great addition to the app. You can a cartoon of the horses walking up to the start and then you get to follow the race through the live graphics. There is a status bar underneath the cartoon that tells you which horses are looking good and how many furlongs are left etc.

    Bet365 have recently reduced the qualifying bet amount to access from £1.00 Win/£0.50 Each Way to £0.50 Win/£0.25 Each Way. They effectively halved the cost of watching a live horse race either online or from your phone.

    "At The Races" have launched a brand new free horse racing app that lets users watch their entire archive of 13,000 past UK and Irish races on their phones. The At The Races app is free to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
