Tips for horse racing gambling
A novice in horse racing gambling must know about the tracks and the scratches. The track provides number to all the horses being used for the race. A person can bet on these numbers. All the numbers are printed beside the names of each horse in a racing court. A few tracks use the post position as the horse number. Instead of understanding the process of numbering of the horse by the track one should use the program assigned number when buying bets. The other term is scratches which are used for those horses which have been withdrawn from the racing. So there are no bets available on them. The bets on such horses are refundable.
Bet to win, bet to place and bet show are the common types of betting in a horse racing gambling. If a horse bet by a person comes first then it is termed as bet to win and if it comes first or second place then it is said bet to place and if it comes in first, second and third position then it is termed as bet to show. Bet to win stake is risky in comparison to bet to show.
