Races usually take place between 8am and 10pm, seven days per week. You can find listings of the race times and runner names on our basic Steepledowns race card. The race card is normally available from around 10pm the previous day and fixed odds are added to the card prior to the start of racing each day, typically at around 8am.
Steepledowns is a virtual jumps or steeplechase racing (also known as national hunt racing) venue, produced by 49s Ltd. The races are shown ‘live’ in betting offices throughout the UK and elsewhere.
As far as we are aware, the only place to view live coverage of Steepledowns races online is via William Hill's Betting TV. Currently this service appears to be available to anyone, membership and login is not required. This could well change at some point in the future.
It is important to note that not all races will be broadcast and no schedule is available. Much depends on other events that may also be shown on the channel. Virtual racing is likely to be classed as low priority where clashes occur. That said, many races from Steepledowns and other virtual racetracks are shown and this seems to be the best option currently available to those wishing to view races live online.
