The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / How to win at Horse Racing Betting

How to win at Horse Racing Betting

How to win betting the horses!
Publish Date: 11/22/2019
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

Betting on horse racing is an ancient pastime that can be traced all the way back to antiquity. In all that time, the fundamental nature of horse racing has remained more or less the same. Hereโ€™s what you know if you want to get started betting on these races.

Learn the Names
From the tracks to the horses to the jockeys, the more familiar you are with the specifics, the easier it is to bet on horse races. Once you know what each course is like, and what kind of horses and riders they favor, you can start to make more informed bets that are more likely to win and payout. The more you can research all of this, the more useful it will be to you, assuming you can remember it all of course!

However, there are some things that you can only really learn from experience. Thatโ€™s why you need to watch carefully everything that happens during your first handful of races.

Keep Notes

Data is at the heart of everything these days, and there is seemingly nothing that you canโ€™t do with the right data in your hands. You can gather data about every race that you spectate and/or bet on, which should give you an objective measure of how useful your current betting system is. It will also give you an ever-increasing amount of data about the horses and the jockeys themselves, enabling you to identify the most successful, and potentially most lucrative, horses and jockeys to watch.

Never Underestimate the Weather

It is hard to overstate the impact that the weather can have on how any horse race plays out. During the summer, the ground is much drier and harder, which adds to the stress placed on the horsesโ€™ legs as they run. Warmer weather also makes it easier to overheat and limits how well any horse can perform during their race. However, every type of weather will have its own advantages and drawbacks. The slightly soggier ground will have more give to it, and will, therefore, lead to less impact stress on the horseโ€™s bones.
But this can go too far and lead to the ground that is so sodden that it ends up slowing the horse down. Bad weather can also seriously throw off a jockey’s balance and cause them to make mistakes theyย would otherwise avoid.

Choose the Right Betting Platform

There is a plethora of online and offline options for any gambler in the UK today. You can stick with the classic high street bookies if you like, but online gambling is becoming increasingly popular for gamblers in all age groups. Online casinos also often offer some generous welcome bonuses to new members, which enables you to get even more value out of each bet you make. For example, check out the William Hill Welcome Bonus on Freebet Up for an example of the kind of thing you are looking for. When you bet ยฃ10 through William Hill, you will be rewarded with ยฃ30 of free bets. Thatโ€™s definitely a good deal to get you started with horse racing. Once you understand the basics of horse racing, and you have found a betting platform that you feel comfortable with, betting on the horse races becomes easy.
