Best Binoculars for Horse Racing
First, stay away from zooms - they are always inferior in both optics and reliability. Go with either an 8x32 or an 8x42 roof prism for a binocular that would be good for any application, including the races. Yes, quality is very much a function of price. A $400 binocular is a big jump in quality over a $100 binocular, though not necessarily a 4x jump. A popular standard at the $300 price point is the Nikon Monarch 8x42 and it is as good a place to start as any when it comes to a great value. For something a bit on the smaller side, try an 8x32, such as the Eagle Optics Ranger 8x32 SRT.

also comes in 8x30
Most 8x40s are much too heavy
