Noun edit

racing (countable and uncountable, plural racings)

  1. The sport of competing in races.
    • 1870, Delabere Pritchett Blaine, An encyclopaedia of rural sports, page 231:
      Chariot racings are probably, however, those in which the horse first distinguished himself as a courser, and we believe our earliest notices on the subject point to those of Persia, which were practised at the sacrifices made to the sun []
    • 1947 January and February, O. S. Nock, “"The Aberdonian" in Wartime”, in Railway Magazine, page 3:
      The war years have not greatly altered running conditions on the East Coast route north of Edinburgh. It was never a racing ground, and the heavier loads and the possibility of indifferent coal have been only partially balanced by the increases in running times of the principal trains.
