Categories of Wagers


Betting on horse races has been done since before. One needs to understand and find more info on racing odds. This can give you a detailed overview and understanding of how to place a bet. It is also crucial to know first the categories of the wagers. There are two categories of wagers when betting, the straight wagers and the exotic wagers.





For beginners, it is best to stay with straight wagers first and progress to exotic bets once you get the ropes. With straight wagers, you just have to pick which horse to come first, second, or third. As for the exotic wagers, this can be more difficult than straight wagers. In exotic wagers, one can select multiple bets in one wager. It requires enough knowledge, skills, and experience to win.





Although exotic wagers are more expensive, it’s payoffs can be much bigger than straight wagers. Indeed, worth it!​


Placing a Wager


Many people may think that placing a bet can be complicated. However, it's completely not. Commonly, it's just placing your bet and getting your ticket. If you are lucky enough, you can get your ticket back and receive your winnings. But how do you do it in a step-by-step procedure?





Now that you already know the types of wagers, it's now time to place your bet. First, you should state the racetrack's name, then state the number race you're betting on. Next to state is the dollar unit of the bet, the type of wager, and the number of horse/horses you are using. Before leaving the counter, thoroughly check your tickets to ensure all information is correct.





Furthermore, it is also easier and more accurate to place your bet through human tellers. Placing your bet on automated betting machines can be risky. You might end up messing up your bet because of the wrong button. Thus, it is safer to place it in fast and friendly human tellers.​


Picking Your Winning Horse


In horse racing, you can spend your two minutes with much fun and excitement! Picking your horses can be a fun way to enjoy the race. Betting can give you a sense of control during the race. To effectively pick your winning horse, it is crucial to look at some details. One should know how to read the race day program.





The race day program can include information about the track and each race. This information from the race day program can be beneficial to potential bettors. Statistics and history of all horses will also be provided for each race that day. This can be your one way to make smarter bets.





Furthermore, you can also look at the horse's past performances in terms of the class levels they were in and the surface type they run on. Knowing the performance of the horses on different surfaces of the racetracks before betting can be important. Some horses perform better depending on the tracks. Horses can perform well either in dirt tracks or artificial tracks.​


Set a Budget


One important thing to consider before going on horse race betting is to set a budget. There may be times when one can't control once they are on it. Simply bring a specific amount of money. Also, you don't have to spend much to enjoy it. You also don't have to place a bet in every race. However, there is definitely no problem if you enjoy it your way.​


Conclusion

The recent bad press over Gordon Elliot has thankfully been dissipated by the wonderful Rachael Blackmore,we must remember that the vast majority of horse racing fans.gamblers owners,trainers,stable lads and jockeys love their horses.Nobody epitomised this more than Laura Brooke so tragically killed falling from a horse(Orchestrated) Taunton racecourse.Laura wasn't in the top echelon of riders and rode mainly moderate horses.
The taking of a young life is tragic and hers and Lee Collins's sad demise show a human side to the betting industry we forget at our peril.
