Horseracing is second only to Football for attendance and income in the UK.
In fact 4/10 of the Top Sporting Events in the UK are Horse Races.
About 5.6 Million people go racing each year.
They all want to look good.
They all want to look individual.
They all want to eat and drink well.
One in twenty of them book somewhere to stay overnight.
Can you help them with any of those things?
Racegoers spend about £248 million each year on transport, accommodation, food & drink, hair & beauty and other local services.
PLUS a further £1.25 billion on their racing lifestyle including outfits, picnic gear, gifts and other related items.
Would you like them to spend some of that with your business?
We are Eclipse Magazine, we’ve been online and talking about The Social Side of Horse Racing since 2008 and we are the UK’s first online magazine for both men and women that focuses on the ‘lifestyle’ and ‘fashion’ elements of horseracing including an attractive and exclusive curated collection of products and services for racegoers, both for racedays and for their lifestyle.
The website is uniquely positioned, independent and updated and promoted daily.
We talk to racegoers – predominantly female ones, which is very unusual in this industry. Our readers are highly educated and typically they visit us while they are at work. According to Advertising Industry statistics, women make 85% of household purchasing decisions.
We talk to the ABC1 racing audience who love reading about fashion, food, drink, hotels and lots of other racing-related services.
Would you like them to know what YOU have got to offer?
We have a clean list of active and engaged subscribers who we talk to on a monthly basis via e-newsletters delivered directly into their inboxes.
And then there’s Social Media… Our Twitter.com ranking is in the top 0.1% worldwide for Horseracing, Fashion, Equestrianism, Horses, Magazines, Cheltenham and Polo (Verified by Klout.com). Twitter ranks by quality of followers and degree of influence as well as number of followers.
We also promote to our audience through all the top social media channels, including Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Instagram etc.
We appeal to both men and women, spectators and participants as well as the people who run the Racing Industry themselves. However, our audience is ground-breaking in that the majority of our readers are female.
Our audience already has a definite need for your products and services, both on racedays and as part of their general lifestyle.

There’s a huge – and growing! – audience of people who really enjoy the lifestyle aspects of racing and who will go that extra mile to find just the right ‘thing’ for their Big Day Out – and Eclipse is often recommended as the place to start looking for it.
Eclipse brings a fresh outlook and exciting ideas that will help realise the full potential of the sport of kings.
I believe in the concept and the team behind it.
Trust us, they’ll want to know.
We have a dedicated Fashion and Beauty Editor and we are frequently asked to supply racing fashion articles to other websites, including in the past, the racing industry’s official marketing website Lovetheraces.com.
‘Bespoke’, ‘unique’, ‘exclusive’, ‘quality’, ‘handmade’, ‘British’ and ‘independent’ are some of the key concepts that make products and services attractive to our readers.
Finding something special is an essential ingredient in the overall racegoing experience and lifestyle.
Eclipse Magazine works with British racecourses, industry bodies and many people and companies connected with racing. We also have international contacts all around the world.
…have definite needs for different aspects of their day out. Planning often begins months in advance.
And individuality is key.

We are happy to change banner images and competition text within the same timeframe.
