Online Betting on Horse Racing


Horse racing betting can be interesting and actually very fun. There are a lot of possibilities when you bet on horses. The most basic bet that you can make is betting on a horse to win a race. If your horse of choice finishes in first place then you have won as well. Another option that horse racing betting fans have is to put their money on a horse to finish the race in first or second place. Betting on a horse to come in first, second or third place is the next option that horse racing betting fans can take wagering on the horse to show. Now that all of these three options have been properly mentioned, it is worth mentioning that horse bettors can also take all of these three options, meaning that they can bet across the board. This equals to putting money on a horse to either win, place or show in three individual wagers.

Exotic wagers are also a big thing in horse racing betting. There is a wide variety of ways for you to go about placing an exotic wager. The first option is called the exacta. In the exacta the bettor picks the exact order of the first two finishers of the race. In the quinella, which is another type of exotic wager, the bettor can choose the two horses believed to be the first two finishers of the race and de can come in whatever order, as long as the horses are correct. With the trifecta, the horse racing betting fan has to pick the first three horses that come through the ending line, but they must be chosen in the exact order. Finally, the superfecta works the exact same way with the slight difference that the first four horses must be involved.

Multi-race horse racing betting is yet another possibility. The first step of a multi-race bet is called the Daily Double that consists on making a pick of the first two races of any given day. The Pick Three option is when you have to pick the winners of three consecutive races. There is also the Pick Four and the Pick Six.

To recap, you can bet on a horse to win a race, or you can bet on a horse to finish a race in first, second, or third place. In addition to that, you can bet on a horse to show. Moreover, not only can you bet on these three alternatives individually, but also all of them at the same time. Furthermore, there are four kinds of exotic wagers; namely: the exacta, the quinella, the trifecta, and the superfecta. Finally, we have multi-race betting in which you can go full-on Jeopardy and do the Daily Double; that is picking the first two races of the day. There are also the pick three, pick four, and pick six. So now you know the basics for when you want to bet on horses. It is super fun and ultra exciting. No wonder they call horse racing the sport of kings.
