Horse Racing Betting

Although a great deal of betting has moved online or at the very least off-track, anyone betting horse racing will go into decline is simply not paying attention. Horse racing remains extremely popular.

Now, anyone can bet on football, and millions do. It’s a popular sport and readily understood by the masses. Betting horse racing, on the other hand, is more complex. It takes study and attention to details. There are variables the likes of which football has never seen, and to get into horse racing each combination needs to be explored.

With deep knowledge the serious bettor tends to choose an area of focus and study it extensively.

Some bet only on favourites, while others prefer to research particular yards and follow their fortunes. Still others ignore the horses in favour of  jockeys. Are they calm under stress? Can they maintain weight? What tricks seem apparent for the jockey delivering a victory?

Even with the horses and jockeys reasonably well-known, there is still the betting field to decipher.

Horse racing, over and above other sports, has a mind numbing set of betting combinations available. Even the names are a mystery to the uninitiated: Parlay, Super-Yankee, Quiniela, Superfecta.

But it can all be simplified down to just looking at race winners. That again will all come back to study form and thoroughly looking at the racecard. A horse may be in brilliant at the current time.

However, the level of opposition that they are up against matters a great deal. If they are now going up in grade, things are going to be more challenging? Is the horse under a penalty for recent successes? Have they been moved up or down in distance.

There are many, many factors that work their way into horse racing betting. It is one of those sports, where statistics can get very deep.
