Betting is a skill developed through the years of gambling, but the best players are those who know their limits. True, the next round of betting is just as exciting as the first, but still you have to use your judgment. Can you afford another round of sport bets, or are you ready to take the risks?

Never bet more than you can afford to lose. For example, instead of paying $2 for an Exacta bet that requires the horses to finish in an exact first and second place order, you can pay $4 for an Exacta Box bet, and you will win the Exacta bet regardless of which of the two horses comes in first.

Exacta Bet – A bet on the exact first and second place finishers in exact order.

Place Bet – A bet that the horse you chose will come in second (a place bet is also a winning bet if the horse you chose comes in first).

Trifecta Bet – A bet on the exact first, second, and third place finishers in exact order.

Daily Double Bet – A bet on the first place finishers in two consecutive races.

To place a $2 Exacta Box bet on horse 2 and 5, you would say, “<Track Name>, $2 Exacta Box on Numbers 2 and 5″ (keep in mind that this is actually a $4 bet since you are boxing the bet).

Once you have taken the time to look over the racing program and the professionals’ advice, it is time to start figuring out which bets you would like to place for the upcoming race. The point is to have fun, not to go home without money you need to pay your bills. At this point, some people like to spend some time on the paddock to see the horses being walked from the stable to the track, as it adds to the horse racing experience and occasionally one might notice something about a horse that influences the way they bet, such as a horse that appears sluggish or one that seems like it is in exceptional shape.

While there are a variety of bets, the following are the most common bets, and are more than enough for beginners. To keep things fun and not risk too much money, most beginners make $2 bets. Across The Board Bet) – Bets on the first, second, and third place finishers; each act as a separate bet.

The following is the correct way to place a bet with a betting clerk:.

Show Bet – A bet that the horse you chose will come in third (a show bet is also a winning bet if the horse you chose comes in first or second).

Win, Place, and Show Bet (a.k.a.

The reason why you need to start out with the <Track Name> is because you can bet on horse races at many tracks from the horse track you are currently at, so you need to specify the track to the betting clerk.

Win Bet – A bet that the horse you chose will win the race.

To place a $2 Win bet on horse number 7, you would say, “<Track Name>, $2 to Win on Number 7″.

Box Bet – Any of the above bets can be boxed for an additional wager

Once you have identified horses that have proven they can win at the distance, surface, and level, find out if the horse who is the likely favorite in the race has done the same thing.

It is amazing how many times you will find a race where the favorite has not done what is being asked of it but another horse, going off at long odds, has done it. If you have the ability to watch the pools and spot inside money it is also helpful to know if the barn is betting that longshot.

But when a longshot does win, somebody cashes tickets on that winner. So the real secret to making money on longshots is finding a person who can spot a good longshot bet in the racing form or program and then make money from the bet.

Next, look at each one of these racers and see if it has ever won at the distance, on the same surface, and at the same class level or higher. This is the single most important clue to finding a good bet on a horse going off at long odds.

Every day, at race tracks all over the world, people are surprised when horses win races even though the horse has done it before under the same conditions. Now comes the tricky part. Is it coming back from a long layoff? Does its form seem to have tapered off?

What you are trying to find out is if that horse can improve today and also if the favorite is a false favorite. Handicapping horse races for profit and trying to make money betting on races is hard enough without going after those horses who seem so unlikely to win.. The goal of playing the ponies is to make money, a profit. Do you ever wonder who had the horse and if it is all the people who just play their lucky number? Does it ever occur to you that someone actually looked at the racing program and picked that horse to win for a reason?

While most people would agree, after a few trips to the horse races, that long shot bets are where the money is, however, after losing money trying to win a few, most will agree they are also difficult to hit. Since horses go in and out of form and also respond to training and equipment changes, any horse that once managed to do what is being asked of it today should be considered a threat especially when the favorite is vulnerable.

There is no one single formula for finding good long shot bets, but there are a few clues. Before the races, go through the racing form and find every horse that is in the morning line at 10-1 or higher.

It does happen sometimes, but before you declare that person a genius, find out if he or she is ahead on his or her bets. Figure out why the horse you circled is now a long shot if it has indeed proven itself capable of winning a race such as today’s race. Now circle each horse that qualifies
