How to Get Better at Horse Race Betting

| November 17, 2021, 06:00 PM

In Maryland, names like War Admiral, Seabiscuit, and Secretariat can elicit a visceral response. Each of these horses has fought for the title of ‘Greatest of All Time’, and each of them has taken to one of Maryland’s iconic racetracks. If you’re a betting person, you’re probably wishing that you were around during Secretariat’s glory days. But would you have had the guts to take the risk on a horse that nobody believed would go all the way to winning the Triple Crown? To be fair, Big Red (as Secretariat was affectionately known) and his remarkable accomplishment could be viewed as lightning in a bottle. These days, betting on the horses requires a little less risk, a little less faith, and a little more research.

Find a Great Sportsbook

If you want to improve your chances at picking a winner, the first thing you need to do is hit the books. Scratch that. Actually, the first thing you need to do is find the fastest withdrawal online casino around, and there are plenty to choose from on this site, and then sign up for an account. In fact, sign up for an account at a few different fast withdrawal casinos -just make sure that each of them has a sportsbook. Signing up to more than one sportsbook allows you to shop around for the best odds. The odds you’re offered can affect your winnings in a big way, and they can also make you take a risk where you might not have thought to do so.

Plan Your Season

Once you’ve got your sportsbooks sorted out, you can start planning your bets. Planning the racing season out ahead of time is a great way to help you focus on your research. It’s not a good idea to place a bet on a horse, or a race, on a whim. Planning your bets also helps you to keep track of your betting budget. We can’t stress enough the importance of sticking to a budget. Betting on the horses should be fun and exciting, but if you get carried away and start dipping into your savings or your kid’s college fund, it won’t be fun or exciting anymore.

Study the Form Guide

Once you’ve planned out which of the races that you’re going to bet on, you can start taking an in-depth look at all the horses in the line-up. The form guide will provide you with a wealth of invaluable information about each and every horse. You will be able to find out how each horse has performed during the current season, which is usually a good indicator of how they might perform on race day. You will also be able to find out how each horse has fared over a particular distance and on a particular track.

It is also good to take a good look at the specs. The specs will reveal the horse’s weight, age, and gender, but more importantly, the specs will also reveal the lineage of each horse. Good genes play an important role in producing a winning horse.

Check out the Jockey

Lastly, you should research the jockey and the trainer. Good horses attract the best jockeys, so if your horse has an unknown jockey on board, it is probably an indication that the horse is untested or simply not performing well. It should also be noted that the best trainers’ trend to produce the largest number of winning horses. The only problem with betting on a horse that has come from a successful yard and that has a famous jockey on its back, is that the odds of winning are likely to be lower. It might be more worth your while to take a risk on a green horse, but only if it has a strong lineage that indicates that it’s a horse with potential.
