Horse Racing Cigarette cards

  People have been racing horses for thousands of years. The cigarette set "Races - Historic & Modern", issued by Carreras in 1927, shows the different types of horse racing through the ages.

   Horse racing has been closely associated with gambling for many years and I'm sure many of us have been tempted to have a flutter at some time. Tobacco companies were quick to take advantage of the popularity of horse racing and produced many sets from the 1900s-1930s, especially Ogdens Ltd.

  It would be impractical to list every racehorse cigarette card set ever issued and so I've listed a small selection of the more rare and unusual ones. I've provided scans of a sample card from each set and I've tried to list as many card titles as possible.
