How to Bet on Horse Racing Handicapping and Win

Betting on horse racing, also called horse racing betting or horse betting, occurs frequently at all horse races held in any country. It originated in the UK during the mid 1600s during the rule of King James I of England. Horse gamblers would bet on the outcome of a horse race taking place in a particular race held in that country. Today, betting on horses is, for the most part, illegal at any national level in most parts of the world.

Most horse race bettors prefer to place their bets on individual races and not on a combination of all the races being held at a track. For example, if one wanted to win by betting on the first race and win another, that would cost more than simply placing a single bet on first place and win. So how much one would cost is dependent upon how many races are being picked. Some show bets are even more expensive than individual show bets because the bettor would be gambling on whether the horse would win or lose in each of its races and thus have to hope the horse would win enough in each race to pay off his show bet.
