Horse racing is a high paced sport, and it can be hard to keep track of the action with binoculars that are too powerful. To make sure you have a good view when the winning horse hits the line, pick a pair with a lower magnification around (7x or 8x), which will give you more control when following a moving horse. As most races are held during the day or on well lit night tracks, a large objective lens isn’t usually required; the bonus here is that binoculars with smaller objective lenses are more compact.
Our recommended sizes for great trackside viewing are 7x35, 8x25, 8x40, 8x42
