How to Bet on Horse Racing

Horse racing is one of the most popular sports in the world, and betting on horse racing is just as popular. If you're new to horse racing and want to get started betting, this guide will teach you everything you need to know.

The first thing you need to do is find a horse racing track. There are horse racing tracks all over the world, and many of them offer live racing. You can also bet on horse racing online, but we'll get to that later.

Once you've found a horse racing track, the next thing you need to do is decide how much you want to bet. There are many different ways to bet on horse racing, but the most common is to bet on a horse to win, place, or show.

If you bet on a horse to win, you're betting that the horse will finish first. If you bet on a horse to place, you're betting that the horse will finish first or second. And if you bet on a horse to show, you're betting that the horse will finish first, second, or third.

The amount you can bet on a horse varies from track to track, but the minimum bet is usually $2.

Now that you know how to bet, it's time to pick a horse. There are many factors to consider when choosing a horse, but the most important is the horse's form.

The best way to determine a horse's form is to look at the horse's past performances. These can be found in the horse's racing program, which is available at the track or online.

When you're looking at a horse's past performances, pay attention to the horse's finishes in similar races. If the horse has finished first in a race that's similar to the one you're betting on, that's a good sign.

You should also look at the horse's jockey and trainer. A good jockey and trainer can make a big difference in a horse's performance.

Once you've picked a horse, it's time to place your bet. You can do this at the track or online.

If you're betting at the track, you'll need to know the race number and the type of bet you want to make. You can find this information on the racing program.

When you place your bet, you'll need to give the teller your race number, the type of bet you're making, and the amount you're betting.

If you're betting online, you'll need to find an online horse racing betting site. Many online sportsbooks offer horse racing betting.

Once you've found a betting site, you'll need to create an account and deposit money into your account. Then you can place your bet.

To bet on a horse, you'll need to know the horse's racing number. You can find this information on the racing program.

When the race is over, the horse with the most points is the winner. If you bet on the winning horse, you'll win money. The amount you win depends on the odds of the horse you bet on.

Horse racing is a great way to have some fun and potentially win some money. Just be sure to gamble responsibly.

You've Reached the Summit

Winston Churchill said there is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.

We don't think he was referring to racehorse ownership but he should have been.

Nothing can match the heart-pounding thrill of watching your horse charge down the stretch on his way to victory. But there's so much more to the experience: Anticipation. Build Up. Adrenaline Rush. Cheering. Exaltation. And yes, sometimes disappointment. It's Life rolled into an unforgettable two-minute roller coaster ride of emotions.

Join us on that ride as we “Reach for the Summit”.

Excerpt from Sports Illustrated article on Bob Baffert:

"It starts with American Pharoah. He is owned by Ahmed Zayat, an Egyptian-born, New Jersey-based businessman who was first introduced to Baffert by bloodstock agent Brett Lindenbaum in 2005. “I had known Zayat for 20 years at that point,” says Lindenbaum. “He’s very competitive, very emotional, and at the time he was buying horses like crazy. I said to him ‘What are you doing? You’re spending money like it’s the last year of your life.’ He said, ‘I’m trying to win the Derby.’ I said, ‘You’re not going to win the Derby until you meet Bob Baffert.’ ” Lindenbaum got Baffert and Zayat together in 2006 on a filly named Point Ashley, who won two stakes races." --Tim Layden, Sports Illustrated Apr. 27, 2015...for full article click here
