Betting on Horse Racing

The sport of kings was the activity which first brought betting into the mainstream. The whole reason horse racing exists is because of punters who bet on every race. In this guide, we will have a look at betting on Horse Racing in more detail.

Ways to bet

Winner or each way – Betting race by race is the most popular way to bet. As the fields are usually large there is always good value to be had. Another popular choice is picking specific races and placing a win or each way accumulator. An alternative to this is a Placepot or Jackpot bet which means you have to predict the place or the winner respectively across a certain card.

Ante Post Racing – Betting on the winner of a major event before the horses have even been announced allows you to get the best odds possible. The only problem with this is if your horse is withdrawn or does not make the cut then you lose your money.

Place only – Backing a horse to finish in a place only position is not a popular bet, but it can offer you top payout if you get it right. When you place this bet you only pay the each way part of your bet and are only returned 25% or 20% of the odds if your horse wins or finishes in the place positions. What this does mean is if you can find a 16/1 horse that you think will place then you can get 4/1 or 7/2 on this happening.

Others – Horse racing also has a lot of ‘special’ markets as well. Backing a jockey to finish with the most wins over a season, a horse to win two major events or even betting on international races are just a few of the special bets available.
