My Race Days
About Karen Thacker
Welcome to my page! I’m Karen and I can’t tell you how excited I am to be one of the ‘voices’. I live in Redcar in the North East of England, just a stone’s throw from the racecourse itself. In fact, I can sit out the back and hear the commentary on race days!
You could say I’m a little obsessed by racing and everything to do with it. Let me explain....If racing was a drink, I’d drink it, and if it were a food I’d be obese! Just a glimpse of those plastic white rails makes my heart beat that little bit faster.
From as far back as I can remember I’ve loved horses and racing in particular. I think it stems from watching the racing on TV with my dad from a very early age, which then took hold of me – next thing I’m riding a finish on my beanbag against Lester Piggott!
It’s not just about picking winners (although that’s always a bonus), it’s everything the day and the courses have to offer. Follow me as I go racing and invite you to share in my favourite pastime. Any questions? Just ask!
Racing is a fabulous sport where you can experience every emotion on the planet, and once in a while a truly exceptional equine will come along who will not only take your breath away, but will also bring a tear to your eye.
In six words I’m a mum who loves racing. I ‘Love The Races’. I hope you will too!
