Horse Racing Betting Odds
Horse racing is one of the most popular sports to bet on and from Australia to America, Hong Kong to Dubai and South Africa to Scotland people enjoy having a flutter – big or small – on the races.
Few things compare to watching a horse you have backed come romping through the field in the final furlongs to win by a short margin, filling your pockets in the process. The adrenaline and excitement that creates, as well as the supreme athleticism and elegance of the great horses makes betting on horse racing a hugely enjoyable pastime for so many people.
There is racing in the UK almost every day of the year and with some huge races all over the world, rare is the day when there isn’t a horse worth backing. Whether you like the thrill of National Hunt jumps or the pure speed and glamour of flat racing there is something for everyone. Racing has had no shortage of great horses over the years, with names such as Red Rum, Arkle, Phar Lap and Secretariat known all over the world, even to non-racing fans.
However, we are perhaps fortunate to live in an era now with some genuine all-time greats. The recently retired greats of flat and jump racing Frankel and Kauto Star, the growing magnificence of Sprinter Sacre, the Australian beast Black Caviar, and Big Bucks, who will hopefully return from injury as good as ever.
Betting on these horses is almost a sure thing, with Sprinter Sacre recently winning at the Cheltenham Festival at odds of 1/4, Frankel winning all 14 of his races and Black Caviar 24 unbeaten. However, it’s not always that easy and beating the odds is the challenge for every racing fan and punter.
Here at Odds1X2 we will enable you to pick your way through the potential minefield of betting on the horses and hopefully help you make a nice profit. We have a few little tricks up our sleeves, including brilliant free bets from a whole host of top bookmakers, our excellent odds comparison service and race and horse previews that save you from backing three-legged nags.
The biggest events such as the Grand National and Cheltenham will get the full Odds1X2 treatment, with profiles of the leading horses, including the latest betting odds and form, as well as previews of the main races.
The Grand National, with its huge field, towering fences and mammoth distance of over four miles is one of the most unpredictable races in the sport, but also one of the most exciting. It is the race that gets the entire UK out and betting, much like the Melbourne Cup in Australia, the so-called “race that stops a nation”.
People who never normally have a bet get involved and whether you are a betting and racing veteran or a once-a-year punter, our tips and previews will help you find the winner, or at least a nice each way horse at big odds.
We hope you enjoy our horse racing pages and we are sure that with our odds comparison tool you’ll always get the best price available whenever you back a winner with us!
