Types of horse racing bets

Below are the main types of horse racing bets you can place at Leo Vegas:

  • Single – Bet on a horse to win. If it wins, you win your bet!

  • SP – Bet on a horse to win at its Starting Price (SP). The SP could go up or down before the race begins.

  • Each Way – Back a horse to win or finish in one of the places. Most races feature places between the top three, four, or even five finishers. Your E/W bet is split in half, with 50% of the wager backing your horse to win, and the other 50% on it to place.

  • Forecast – Accurately predict which horse will finish first and which will finish second in a race.

  • Tricast – Accurately predict which horse will finish first, which will finish second and which will finish third in a race.

Horse racing betting tips

Horse betting can be as complex as you like but most bettors stick to the straightforward Single and Each Way markets. Here are some racing betting tips to get you started:

  • Stick within budget – Never bet more than you can afford. It’s smarter to look at how much you’re betting, rather than how much you could win.

  • Read the race card – Maximise your knowledge of each race and improve your chances of nailing a winning bet by looking over the race card. You might spot an in-form horse or one that is better suited for the going.

  • Watch horse racing live – There’s no better way to improve your knowledge of horse racing than by watching it live. Live stream horse racing at Leo Vegas and bet alongside all the action. Watch bets early in the day to gain more knowledge about how races at the same course may pan out later.

  • Start small – Small bets can help new players become accustomed to horse racing betting without risking their whole budget in one go.
