Betting Horse Racing

So you don’t live anywhere near a racetrack. No problem! Today, betting horse racing online at tracks around the world has never been easier. The sites we’ll talk about are well-established, legal, secure, and can provide much of the same experience you would get if you were at the track…without leaving home!

The basics of betting horse racing online are fairly straightforward. Typically, you register with one of these sites, make a deposit, and your winnings and losses are credited or debited from your account. Some betting horse racing online sites require the payment of a monthly subscription fee that is often waived if your betting exceeds a certain amount per month. Since you are betting horse racing online live, all the race conditions, types of bets, and so forth are exactly the same, although some sites do not pool their bets with the pari-mutuel pool. You can watch the odds being updated as they are on the track, with minimal delay. With some sites, your bet is added to the overall betting pool, along with all other wagers from around the online world and those made live at the track. Some of these sites even allow you to wager and check results via cell phone text messaging.

Betting horse racing online has three drawbacks. First, watching live races on a tiny window on your computer leaves much to be desired. While you watch and listen to the same feed that is being broadcast on the monitors at the track and OTB parlors, it can be difficult to see. If you are a serious handicapper, one option is to install a satellite television system in your home. Dish Network broadcasts TVG and Horse Racing TV. These channels are not available on most cable systems, and free equipment deals may be available for first time subscribers. Monthly rates for the Dish Network are $40-$50 per month.

The second drawback is that with anything else on the Internet, you are at the mercy of your hardware and software. Some betting horse racing online sites, for example, work with Internet Explorer, but not Firefox or Netscape browsers. A slow computer, or one which has frequent problems, may not be the best system for accessing these sites, especially if you are interested in watching the races live on your computer.

Lastly, some people find that betting horse racing online can be an overall unsatisfying experience. Being part of the action as it occurs on the track is exciting! Wagering online is close, but not quite the same. For some people, the inability to handle the cash makes for a lesser experience than that at the track. Plus, some handicappers also enjoy watching the horses live, especially when the horses are in the paddock area receiving their saddles and making their way to the track. Regardless, if the convenience of betting online, and the ability to bet at multiple tracks around the clock sounds appealing, then betting horse racing online may be for you!
