How to Bet on Horse Racing

While the likes of Woodbine and the US race tracks still demand bets are syphoned into the tote pool, horse race betting online often allows you to take fixed odds about your fancies and also place them in multiple bets with selections from other sports.

Leading European sportsbooks like William Hill, who are listed on the London Stock Exchange, not only allow their customers to bet on these world-wide horse racing hotbeds but they also provide some great guides like ‘how to bet on horse racing’, offer invaluable form and horse racing tips, plus they stream much of the action live.

You can view the horse racing odds in a number of different formats – decimal, fractional, American etc – and if you need help understanding the bet types a small ‘I’ or ‘?’ icon alongside the bet or market will explain what the bet/market involves. It has all been made very simple and user-friendly.

At the worst case scenario, you can always contact ‘Live Chat’ where a representative will explain all the best types available on a race and direct you to the market which best suits your needs.

Horse Racing Odds

Betting on horse racing online offers a huge variety of bet types which go well beyond the traditional ‘win’, ‘place’ and ‘show’ options. There are ‘each-way’ bets whereby half of a betting stake goes on your selection to win and the other half on it to finish in the frame at 1/4 or 1/5 of its fixed win odds.

European online sportsbooks like Betway also allow you to place doubles, trebles and accumulative exotic bets on any races at any meeting. Furthermore ‘match bets’ and ‘winning distances’ have also become very popular.

And what is noticeable is the retention, percentages or over-rounds. In short, the take-outs from Canadian pools (which range from 11.6% to 25.7%) look like highway robbery when compared to the tiny margins online fixed-odds bookmakers have in their favour regardless of the field size or bet type.

That’s not to say you cannot bet into some European tote pools. They are certainly popular in the UK and offer yet more fun, novel and sometimes valuable betting opportunities.

One such quirky pool bet is the ‘Placepot’ which requires bettors to select a horse to be placed in the first six races on a card. There’s also a Jackpot bet which requires six winners and, on a Saturday, a similar bet but utilizing some of the biggest fields on the day. It’s called the Scoop 6 and its pool regularly exceeds $1.5 million.

Queen’s Plate Betting

Queen’s Plate, one of Canada’s main horse racing event, and certainly the oldest, is held annually in June-July in Etobicoke, Ontario (right out of Toronto), and is and is the first of the three horse races that are the Canadian Triple Crown.

As one of the main Canadian horse races, this is obviously a major betting event. You can read all the info on our Queen’s Plate betting page.
