Online and Land Based Betting on Horse Races

The first horse races were held in Ancient Greece and managed to gain immense love and popularity of the most influential peoples of that time, specifically Greek, Roman, and Byzantine. In addition, this fascinating activity also substantially contributed to various myths and legends of the Norse mythology. Impressively, horse races are still quite popular nowadays. That’s why you certainly need to learn more about this exciting and spectacular form of gambling.

Bets you Can Place on Horse Races

In fact, betting on horse races isn’t as easy as it may seem because it requires from you at least the awareness of different types of bets that you can place. Check them out listed below.

  1. Win bet is placed on the racehorse you predict to come first;
  2. Place bet is basically your prediction of what place will be taken by a specific racehorse;
  3. Show bet serves to predict whether the racehorse you bet on will take one of the three prizes (e.g., the first, second, or third);
  4. Across the Board (or a combo straight wager) serves to predict the horse’s result, whether it will win, place, or show.
  5. Win / Place serves to predict either the first racehorse or the place taken by a specific racehorse.
  6. Place / Show serves to predict either the place taken by a specific horse or the horse you bet on will take one of the prizes.

In addition, there are more advanced bets known as Exacta (placed on the two horses you expect to take the first and second places in the exact order), Quinella (placed on the two horses you expect to take the first and second places regardless of the order), Trifecta (placed on the three racehorses that are expected to take the three winning places in the exact order), and Superfecta (placed on the four racehorses that are expected to take the three winning places in the exact order). If you decide to box either Trifecta or Superfecta bets you will surely win the wager provided that you take the right guess, yet are wrong with the order.
