Range Of Markets

Whilst any bookmaker offering horse racing will offer win markets, other bookmakers set themselves apart by going beyond this. Each-way, faller insurance, betting without favourite, match bets,  forecast and tricasts are just a few of the markets that bookmakers can offer on horse racing.

Finding Value

What a punter loves is value. Some bookmakers are most certainly offering more value than others when it comes to horse racing. The most important factor in terms of value is odds and in some countries bookmakers offer Best Price Guaranteed. This means that the day of your bet it becomes irrelevant whether the horse drifts in price. You will receive whatever is bigger out of the SP and when you placed your bet.

Many bookmakers also pay extra places in horse races. For instance, a race of only eight runners would typically pay just three places. Some bookmakers may do an enhancement involving them paying four places.

Bookmakers regularly also have a wide array of promotions on offer. These can include money back if your selection finishes second, money back if your horse finishes second to the SP favourite and money back if your horse falls.

Antepost Markets

Many leading bookmakers from across the globe offer ante post markets. These are markets that are on races in the distant future. These prove very popular amongst punters partial to a horse racing bet as the odds of the horses are larger than they are likely to be on the day of the race. It is worth noting however that if your horse fails to run in that race you will lose your stake.

Live Streaming

Some bookmakers provide a live stream of horses races in the nation that they are established as well as in other nations across the globe. You normally need to place a minimum bet on the race in order to view the coverage. This is normally £1/$1 etc.

Horse Racing Multiples

There are a number of horse racing multiples that can be made with bookmakers. We have explained some of the most common of those below.

  • Patent – 7 Bets (Three Singles, Three Doubles & One Treble) – 3 Horses
  • Trixie – 4 Bets (Three Doubles & One Treble) – 3 Horses
  • Lucky 15 – 15 Bets (Four Singles, Six Doubles, Four Trebles & One Fourfold) – 4 Horses
  • Yankee – 11 Bets (Six Doubles, Four Trebles & One Fourfold) – 4 Horses
  • Canadian – 26 Bets (Ten Doubles, Ten Trebles, Five Four Folds & One Fivefold) – 5 Horses

Many bookmakers also offer Multiple percentage boosts on your winnings that can vary between 5%-50% depending on who you are betting with. Be sure to check out the promotions page of each bookmaker to find out.
